Kabul (BNA) The current critical and sensitive condition of the country requires tolerance, working toward national interests and wisely moving for removing the current difference.
BNA political analyst commenting on the issue writes the existence of different views, programs, and action is a characteristic of democratic system of governments. Therefore, the existence of problems should not interpreted separation and division but should be consider as way for achieving high political and economic goals and objectives, a working team is committed for achieving them.
Afghanistan, which is experiencing an infant democracy, the existence of difference in views and practice is natural, should not considered as a gap or barrier before the government.
Regretfully, there are certain circles inside and outside the country who are trying to use the differences as a means for achieving their evil and illegal objectives and sow the seed distrust and suspicion among Afghan politicians and people. The open and secret interferences of these circles have further complicated the situation of the country. The continuation of such evil things without doubt will have severe consequences. According to political expert information of such a situation poor will and intention has creative role.
There are certain circles and persons who for achieving their personal, ethnical, and sectarian objectives, using freedom of speech further increase tension and crisis in the country. Regretfully, some medias consciously and non- consciously ignoring their obligation and responsibilities before the community, rise the ugly voice of those heinous figures and circles.
If today, they are talking about observing and implementing the law and ensuring justice  or monopolizing power or poor discipline in administrations, they are a part of propaganda originated from abroad, the purpose of which as mentioned above are dissemination of mistrust and non- confidence among people.
The most critical and acute problems in human long history have settled via exercising tolerance and conducting talks and negotiations. Afghan authorities should use these invaluable and historic experiences for settling the problems threaten the Afghan community before further sinking in mire misery wretchedness.
It should not forget that holding talks and consultation have proved to be the most fruitful and constructive way of settling the problem, while continuation differences harms the country and further encourage the enemies of the country for increasing their interference in domestic affairs of our war stricken country.

Kabul (BNA) The head of High Peace Council says the people have a negative view on Peace High council; therefore, the council should emerge with a new strategy.
BNA social affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes Mr. Karim Khalili newly assigned as the chief of High Peace Council managing the meeting of the council said that the people had negative view on peace high council; it should change its dealings with the relevant affairs.
He emphatically said that Peace High Council should emerge with a new strategy.
The statements expressed by the new chief of the council indicate that he is well aware about the current situation of the council. The council since its establishment, during the last seven years has been witness of many changes in its leadership.
The first chief of the council Professor Burhaneddin Rabani for achieving the holiest aim, this is securing peace and drawing the armed oppositions to the peace process lost his life.
This is a clear proof that Peace High Council is not just a ceremonial organ, but also a source for realizing ideals and aspirations of people that is restoring peace in the country.
Unfortunately, Peace High Council could not meet those ideals and aspirations, now, as the new chief of the council claims, the people have a negative view on high peace council, and that is a major problem should ended immediately because the people can play the basic role in the process.
Peace High Council with its new leadership should become more active and adopting effective and practical measures pave the way for securing peace this persistent demand of Afghan suffering people. However, the problem is that, the former and new leadership of Peace High Council have talked literally in different terms, as the new chief of the council has talked about constructive viewpoints of Taliban. He should explain on what matters Taliban have constructive view, what is their belief about national, political, and economical interests. If some Taliban, really believe in peace, Peace High Council should practically introduce them to the public. In this way, the people know about fruitful and constructive endeavors of the leadership of Peace High Council.  Earlier, due to financially high expenditure of the council not only believed the council but also considered it as an extra organ.
The new leadership of Peace High Council should be responsive to the people about the present and upcoming situation of the council and change it from a passive in to an active organization.
They should consider public recommendations regarding restoring peace in the country. The people say peace cannot secure by moaning but can be secure by respecting national and public interests, the new leadership of Peace High Council should deeply consider the matter in its plans and activities.
The people expect the new leadership of Peace High Council while the battle is continuing in the country, present a new strategy that could meet the requirements of time and situation and lead to securing peace and stability in the country.

Kabul (BNA) The Week of National Mobilization for counter narcotics campaign launches in Afghanistan, while earlier efforts in that end were not so successful.
BNA social affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes the Week of National Mobilization for counter narcotic drugs conducted in Afghanistan in a time,   narcotics have changed in to a severe social, economical and even a political problem in the country.
In spite of that Afghanistan enjoys of having the support and commitments of many countries across the world in campaign against narcotics, unfortunately, still is among the major countries that produce these deadly drugs.
Afghanistan is not only the main sources of production, transit and trafficking of narcotic drugs to other countries, but there are also more than three million addicts in the country, the situation indicates that the problem can be consider as a crucial national problem. If we judge impartially and honestly, the problem of narcotic drugs from poppy cultivation, processing and trafficking of it, like terrorism and extremism imposed on our nation. Because, this is, armed terrorist groups that ensures most of their military requirements from narcotic drugs. In addition trafficking of narcotic drugs constitutes the major part of illegal properties of the leaders of terrorist and extremist groups.
Afghan, USA, the west, and other countries intelligence sources acknowledge that the leaders of Taliban have obtained huge wealth from drugs trafficking and IS tries to have access on drugs trafficking routes.
What is of more important is that narcotic drugs, addiction, and trafficking of narcotics have severely harmed our economic infrastructure and badly affected our cultural identity, our policy and our relations in international arena and threatens our family life.
Week of National Mobilization for counter narcotics campaign can help us to overcome the challenges mentioned above, if it considered as a national problem and campaign honestly and practically to end the problem of narcotics once and forever, as the previous experiences showed, ceremonial activities would not be sufficient and will not meet our objectives.
So far, the efforts made in national and international level for eradication of narcotic drugs not have been successful but a failure.
The Afghan high-ranking authorities acknowledge that currently poppy cultivation in Afghanistan not only decreased but increase as poppy is cultivated in 21 province of the country.
The failure in counter narcotics campaign  in first step linked to increasing insecurities in the country, focusing of armed oppositions in to poppy cultivation, trafficking of the drugs, funding terrorist groups from the incomes of the drugs, decreasing, even stopping foreign, especially USA an UK aids  who play key role in counter narcotics campaign in Afghanistan.
Considering this, the Afghan people and state strongly ask the countries that honestly involved in war against narcotics, in order to fight successfully the disastrous narcotics phenomenon and rescue the world from the evil of narcotics to provide sufficient financial aids to relevant Afghan organs, which are practically campaigning for eradication of narcotics.
In international level, the access of international mafia to transit routes, increasing demand in world markets, including  narcotics in to political affairs, involvement of intelligence services of certain countries of the region in business of narcotics are the main barrier that make counter narcotics very hard and difficult.
Today, there are countries, which accuse Afghanistan for expansion of narcotics trafficking while they themselves do not prevent exporting chemical materials, used in producing heroin, demand for narcotics in their markets is very high, and finally the traffickers are doing their business freely inside their territories. However, unfortunately, with these facts they shamelessly accuse Afghanistan.
   If the exports of chemical materials in to Afghanistan ended or at least decreased  transit routes for trafficking drugs  closed and finally if they coordinate and cooperate honestly Afghanistan in counter narcotic drugs campaign, not  only Afghanistan but the entire region and the world will be free of narcotics and no any people suffer from addiction to narcotics anymore.
We strongly believe that narcotic drugs is a fatal phenomenon that threats the humanity life, struggling against it requires practical and honest work not just crying slogans and holding ceremonial meetings and gatherings.

Kabul (BNA) Honest and sincere efforts for realizing big projects in the level of the region and desisting the views for using the projects as means can lead the region toward cooperation and tranquility and will be a major factor for settling the problems and crisis that currently threat the region.
BNA economic affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes the region and the countries of the region today are suffering from many problems even crisis emanated from wrong ideas and supremacy that certain countries follow, while the countries of the region are suffering from the high rate of poverty and poor economy. During the last years, big economic projects in the level of the region such as TAPI, CASA–1000 , revival of Silk Road, extension of rail roads’  have been planned and designed and the work on some of them have already started. Negotiations are underway for implementing the other projects. Generally, it raises the hope that the region is taking effective steps toward cooperation and peaceful coexistence.
Recently, President Ghani attended in an international meeting held in Dushanbe the capital of Tajikistan where the participants discussed on implementation of CASA–1000. Likewise, in session in Kabul, TAPI project which provides the ground for transmitting Turkmenistan gas through Afghanistan to Pakistan and India assessed by the participants of the session. The participants of the two sessions emphatically said that peace and stability of the region seriously need the practical and true regional cooperation that restore peace and stability of the region and provides the ground for economic growth and elimination of poverty and hunger forever. Afghan people and Islamic Republic of Afghanistan have honestly worked so far for, for implementing the above projects and we expect the other involved countries to do their best for realizing and practical use of the projects.
Afghans seriously believe that peace and stability in the region require the honest cooperation of the countries of the region. If a country thinks about peace and security of the region should put aside the ideas of using the projects as a means for achieving its specific objectives and believe like Afghan leadership that rescuing the region from current challenges and crisis such as terrorism, seriously depends to implementation of big economic projects. Islamic Republic of Afghanistan during the last fifteen years, mainly concentrated on such projects and insisted that without prevailing peace idea in the region, peace will not ensure in the region.
When we claim that war cannot determine the route of peace and terrorism is an irreconcilable phenomenon, therefore, it is an urgent need the big projects implemented in the region, because economic growth decrease the level of insecurity and provide the ground for settling the challenges, crisis and poverty  that threat the region. Therefore, it would be better to look on big regional projects as strategic projects, which are the main factors for cooperation, peaceful coexistence, and tranquility. Wrong ideas such as using the projects as a means for achieving illegally ambitious goals or insisting on driving a county or countries to aside line, make our commitments already made for settling the regional dispute in vain.
