Kabul (BNA) The current threats and challenges, contempt Afghanistan and Iran to further strengthen and expand their cooperation to fight successfully for removing the threats and challenges.
BNA political analyst commenting on the issue writes recently Mohammad Ashraf Ghani president of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan attended in ceremony held for sworn in of Dr. Hassan Rouhani president of Islamic Republic of Iran, for his second term of office as president of that country. The visit of President Ghani has taken place according the international diplomatic norms and standards required for such visits. The Afghan people expect the Iranian brothers and friends as Afghans seriously consider the ancient and close economic, political, cultural and social ties between the two countries and do their best efforts for further strengthening these relation and cooperation.
The visit of President Ghani and his negotiation with Iranian authorities, took place in time, the region is suffering high tensions and problems which ask Afghanistan and Iran to jointly work for decreasing the tension and settling the problems.  The environment, management of waters, drug trafficking and terrorism and extremism problems are the major problems that require Afghanistan and Iran with close relation and cooperation fight in order to overcome threatening problems. Currently, the consistent terror activities in Afghanistan and Iran are a serious matter of concern. The programs of IS who are seeking to find a place in Afghanistan and in the region are better known by Iran than anybody else. In addition our Iranian friends are well aware about misinterpreting of Islamic sacred principles. Unfortunately, despite of that there are reports that say about Iran’s supporting Taliban.  Afghan people strongly believe, terrorism is a severe problem that not only threats the region but the entire world.
Therefore, Afghans are waiting to know what Iran will do in settling this grave problem as our neighbor and friend. At the first step Afghan people expect that our neighbors and the countries in the region considering the concerns of Afghan people on ensuing relation and cooperating the armed terrorist groups, response satisfactory. For settling the regional problems there would be a need for taking effective measures and wisely act.  The armed terrorist groups should not use as a means for achieving illegal and ambitious goals. The Afghan people wish to strengthen relation and expand cooperation with neighboring countries, among them Iran. This would be available only when all relevant countries work honestly in that regard.

Kabul (BNA) BNA reporter reporting the issue writes while a number of American authorities are seeking to cede the Afghan war to two security companies, the representative of one of the companies has said that if the mission conceded to them a conclusive aerial program will be establish in that country. Erik Prince the founder of Black Water private company that presently named Academy has proposed the establishment of a conclusive aerial program that carries out its operations through software IPhone. He offered to Islamic Republic of Afghanistan for establishment of a private air force.
Prince, claims the company using IPhone in air attacks in least one hour can identify the target in every part of Afghanistan and carry out the attacks precisely. He says the attacks, which are being set up in IPhone with the help of software are safe for Afghan army and their allies. The Academy Company was established by one of the graduates of  Academy of US Marine Forces and former officer of marine forces in 1997 Erik Prince under the name Black Water. Black Water started its activities in 2001 presenting security and logistic services in war of Afghanistan. The company changed its name to XA Systems in 2009. Then in late 2010 Erik Prince the founder and the general manager of Black Water Company, sold the company to a group of private investors and changed its name to Academy.
Black Water due to violations committed in Afghanistan and Iraq, considers as a discreditable security organization outside America. Afghan political and military experts have expressed concern over the return of the company in to war of Afghanistan. The company besides not observing any laws in the country, coming to Afghanistan will start arming irresponsible militia groups, because they mostly use civilians in war and implementing their programs. A number of Afghan and American authorities are against conceding management of war affairs against terrorism to security companies. So far Islamic Republic of Afghanistan has said nothing about the statements expressed by the general manager of Black Water.

Kabul (BNA)  Establishing coalitions and carrying political activities are characteristic of democratic system of governments, according to which political parties with complete and written programs come together to work for welfare and tranquility of people and stability of their country.
BNA political analyst commenting on the issue writes that within a couple of last days, Afghan political society has seen a series of developments. Establishing new political coalitions indicates that efforts for reform, development, changes, and reconstruction have become more serious than ever and the activities for the purpose have stepped up.
Coalition of parties and political organizations aiming for bringing reforms and providing the ground for social welfare and stability and reconstruction of the country is one of the characteristics of democratic system of governments, according to which they struggle for achieving the objectives mentioned above.
The new political coalitions insist on implementation of constitution, holding free and transparent elections, and carrying practical efforts for bringing changes and development of the country
The new political coalitions insist on observing legality in the community, implementing the constitution, and holding free and transparent elections. Some members of the coalition’s seriously criticize the performances of the state, especially on dealing improperly with the protesters of Upheaval Movement,  being indifference before army and security forces  are among critics addressed the government.
It should be mention that establishing coalitions in democratic system of governments is an attempt toward progress and cooperation with government to ease the way for achieving the constructive objectives of state. Unfortunately, we see the opposite of that in newly established political coalitions.
During the last three decades many coalitions have formed, since they established to meet the individuals and certain groups’ interests, they failed and the people named them ordered coalitions.
If we look at content and formation the new coalitions, is almost similar to previous ones. Most of the members of the new coalition are high-ranking members of the present government or high-ranking members of the previous governments. The current problems suffering Afghan people are the heritage of the past. If any criticisms addressing the current authorities of the government, in reality refers to whom, who are the members of current government or the members of previous governments. Therefore, they share in both successes and failures of the past and present.
Unfortunately, as the previous experiences show, coalitions in Afghanistan fan differences, while the current situation of the country requires more sympathy and political wisdom not selfish and egoistic actions. The people need a move toward settling the problems not creating further problems.
