Kabul (BNA) The 9th round of negotiation between America and Taliban with two different views, America talks about the presence of its intelligence even military in Afghanistan while Taliban insist on complete withdrawal of foreign forces from the country.
BNA military and social affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes the 9th round of negotiation between US and Taliban has started without the presence of Mullah Ghani Brother the political envoy of the group. At this round of negotiation the Taliban team is led by Sher Mohammad Abas Stanukzay while Zalmay Khalilzad and General Escort Miller the foreign forces commander in Afghanistan led American team at this negotiation. But Mullah Abdul Ghani Brother the political deputy has no presence in the new round of negotiation. Some Pakistan media have said that Mullah Brother without consulting the leader of Taliban had agreed on schedule of ousting American forces within 14 months. This lost the confidence of the leader on him.
This indicates that the leadership of Taliban is suffering from severe differences and in another hand political office of them in Doha has no required authority.
The 8th round of negotiation between the two sides ended with an agreement. Even it was expected an agreement to be signed but now it has been heard that America wanted to bring changes in some items of the agreement.
Withdrawal of foreign forces from Afghanistan is a main demand of Taliban from America based on a schedule, while Donald Trump the president of United States insists on existence of intelligence of his country in Afghanistan and some authorities of that country consider the withdrawal of foreign forces from Afghanistan to the situation.
Mr. Trump considering the 19 years presence of US forces in Afghanistan ridiculous has said that a number of US forces are ousting from Afghanistan but a number of them should remained there.
He has also said that there is no any confident that Taliban be loyal in to their commitments.
America wants Taliban to guarantee that they would not use the territory of Afghanistan against America anymore.
On the other hand there are countries and circles that do not want American forces to be ousted from Afghanistan. Those countries to keep American forces busy in Afghanistan as before. For this reason they spare no any pressure on Taliban to have a firm stance on negotiation.
These stances demonstrate that peace process in Afghanistan is passing through a complicate path and accessing to peace still needs time and establishing new opportunities.
The Afghan people expect the two sides to be honest and politically deal properly and let the Afghans to be engaged in negotiation because only Afghans can settle the longest problem in the region and Afghan people take firm steps to restore peace and stability in to the region.

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.
