Kabul (BNA)   August twenty first is world day for commemorating the victims of terrorist incidents in the world.
BNA social affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes based on proposal of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan envoy in United Nations organization and supporting by other 95 countries, August 21st named as a world day for supporting the victims of terrorist events in the world.
The existence of such a day in world schedule can mobilize the world in war against terrorism and provide a better situation for supporting the victims of this evil phenomenon and also accelerates the war against terrorism.
Afghanistan has been a victim of Terrorism for a long time, just during the last three months of 2019, more than 1700 people have lost lives or injured as a result of terrorist incidents. Terrorist activities have badly affected the life of people and many Afghan people are suffering from depression and mental diseases. 
Today, there are more than six hundred thousand widows, more than two millions women and children in Afghanistan who are suffering from social and economic problems and due to terrorist activities the number of disabled people is increasing in the country.
Terrorism is not only a horrible phenomenon in Afghanistan, terrorists since a long time casing casualties and destructions in Afghanistan and other countries. Unfortunately, the victims of terrorism with their all pains and agonies have been forgotten and the criminals who committed such heinous crimes not punished as they are deserved.
The problem is this, also the world knows about the evils caused by extremism and terrorism but not yet reach a single definition of terrorism. The different countries make the definition according to their own interests.
Unfortunately supporting extremism and terrorism is a part of official policy of certain countries such as Pakistan and Israel, but big countries and international
Organizations ignore this bitter reality and consider not the violence activities of intelligence services of those countries. Because of such policies, terrorist and extremists continue their evil actions all over the world.
The victims of terrorist incidents need help and cooperation. The first urgent cooperation for them would be drawing the culprits of terrorist incidents to the court and punish as they are deserved.
Just by curbing terrorism practically can condole the victims of these brutal and barbaric incidents.

Kabul (BNA) Armed conflicts and terrorist activities have destructive consequences that have made the access of people in to public services limited even impossible in certain situation.
BNA social affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes World Health Organization announced that since the beginning of 2019 with increasing of conflicts and targeting medical centers in Afghanistan 111 medical centers have been closed in the country.
WHO also has said that since the start of 2019 till now 87 medical institutions in 18 province and 53 districts have been targeted by terrorist attacks, as a result of which 132 medical centers completely damaged and 29 medical centers partly destroyed.  During this period 14 medical personnel have lost their lives and 12 other wounded.
This report has been released in a time, just a few days ago unidentified armed people casting fire on a girls’ school in Shakerdar district Kabul province and morning of the other a school in Mazar- I - Sharif became the target of a hand – bomb.
With the continuation of war in the country, the privet and national infrastructures including training medical and commercial centers   have been damaged in the country. 
With destruction of public institutions thousands of compatriots deprive from access in to public services.
Our people believe that destruction of infrastructures and imposing economic losses to the people are the major objectives of terrorist groups.
The terrorist groups with ruthless killing of civilians and destructing and looting their prosperities have proved that they are fighting against people. 
With continuation of armed opposition groups’ activities, training system and presenting medical, social and economic services to people severely decreased, this only leads to meet the enemies’ objectives.
A number of intelligence services of countries of the region are trying to prevent the progress of Afghanistan using any means and this is one of their priorities.
The terrorist groups who work according to instructions of those intelligence services are the main force and means to meet their illegal goals and objectives.
Considering the evil goals of the enemies and their mercenaries, the public utility properties severely needed to be protected. They should not be used as political and military objectives but should considered as public assets and protect them.
Taliban who consider themselves as a part of people should commit that no more destroy public utility projects.

Kabul (BNA) President of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan says, “We should deal Taliban as a group not a legal state.” 
BNA political affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes Mohammad Ashraf Ghani the president of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan in meeting with Chinese special envoy for Afghanistan has said that Taliban should be dealt as a group not a power equivalent to a state.
The statements were expressed exactly in time that a number of countries in consultation with certain intelligence services of the region, in a designed program to identify Taliban have tried to identify Taliban as a parallel power to the state while a year ago recognized them as terrorist group. The nature and the capabilities of the group are clear to everybody and cannot using special words give a wrong and artificial identity to this terrorist group.
During the last years, due to lack of precise anti – terrorism programs, the political games of the intelligence services of the region were active in Afghanistan. The intelligence service of Pakistan in support of certain circles in the west and the countries of Persian Gulf succeeded to revive the identity of Taliban once more and introduce the group as a motive force in political and military scene of Afghanistan. 
Now, there are rumors about ousting foreign forces from Afghanistan and a number of regional and beyond regional countries have planned based on their interests and rivalries to contact and reach an understanding with Taliban and forgotten once called the group as a terrorist group.  
World community is strengthening its relations with Afghanistan as a state. Afghanistan has a democratic state which has come to power via election and supported by international community and Kabul the capital of the country has been hosting the ambassadors many countries across the world.
But Taliban a group that have no legality and popularity among world countries for a long time now enter in to talks, discuss Afghan problem.
The stance of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan in that regard id clear. Mohammad Ashraf Ghani in his visit with Chinese special envoy for Afghanistan has said, “We should deal Taliban as a group and not see the group as legal state because it would be against all international Chinese principles.”
Afghanistan enjoys of having a democratic system, has a progressive constitution and honors all international agreements.
Therefore it would be a serious error to compare it with a terrorist group that caused great casualties among our innocent people and destruction of our homeland just to please foreign intelligence services especially  ISI.

Kabul (BNA) The recent terrorist incidents and provocations of armed opposition groups make it clear that peace with Taliban is fragile and have no the required strength.
BNA political affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes sometimes ago, Kabul was the scene of a bloody terrorist incident. The terrorist targeted a wedding party guest at six precinct of Kabul city which killed 63 people and injured more than 180.
A day after that deadly incident explosion of a street planted mine in Dowlatabad district Balkh province claimed the lives of 12 civilians and injured more than 180 people including women and children.
In Balkh the security forces destroyed an explosive loaded vehicle and they prevented several other terrorist incidents in Kabul and other cities of the country.
The problem is not ended here. Taliban the major group of armed opposition groups fighting against Islamic Republic of Afghanistan forces are suffering from their inner differences,  as Hafiz Ahamadullah brother of Mullah Hibatullah the leader of Taliban was killed in an explosion of a mine in a mosques in north of Kwita city. This indicates that the leader of Taliban has his own enemies. An armed group links to Mullah Rasool’s section have claimed the responsibility of the incident.
Along these incidents, there are credible news that after progress of negation between Taliban and America, the presence of Al- Qaida has increased in battle fields in Afghanistan, and the group has been called a terrorist organization by America and other western countries.
Taliban in negotiation table with US and in talking with media represent only one group while there are several groups of them who have fight for their own interests and have structural formation and supports by certain countries.
There is unofficial news that Russia train Talib for its own, Iran for its own, Arabs for their own and America for its own.
This clearly proves the existence of difference among Taliban and foreign countries use them as a means for ensuring their interests in Afghanistan and in the region.
Here a question emerges that if a peace deal take place with Taliban what should be done with other terrorist groups such as Al- Qaida and IS?
Afghan security sources say that at least 20 armed and terrorist groups are fighting against Afghan state and people. Can peace with Taliban decrease provocations of other terrorist groups like Al-Qaida and IS?
One cannot call Afghan conflict a war between deferent tribes or a religious fighting it is an imposed and regional conflict that the Afghans are mostly the victims of it.
Peace in Afghanistan is impossible only reaching a compromise with one group. It requires the help and cooperation of all involved groups.
