Monday, March 26, 2018 Kabul (BNA) Tashkent Conference to be held in Uzbekistan capital today indicates an international consensus on solving Afghan problem. BNA political analyst commenting on the issue writes today an international conference under the title of peace and development in Afghanistan to be held today in Tashkent Uzbekistan capital. Although political elites are not optimistic about Tashkent conference due the failure of such conferences and sessions in past, however this conference is different from the previous ones because in Tashkent conference the countries involved in proxy war in Afghanistan will also attend in the conference. In spite of all various arguments on Tashkent conference, some politicians believe that holding such conferences supports Afghan stance and promotes international consensus on Afghanistan. The conference is exactly planned in a time that Afghan war is following with different views and out looks by the countries of the region and the world. The plans and the goals of foreign countries have becoming more obvious which were concealed by various means earlier. Afghan people persistently have said that the war in their country is not a civil war but deeply rooted in regional situation and plans of extremism and intelligence games. Poverty, insecurity, poor economy and about four decades of war have turned the country to the field of political games of other countries. Now, Afghanistan not only facing inner problems but suffering from serious problems originated from foreign invasion and interferences which threats not only Afghanistan but many other countries. Therefore we can claim that persistent peace, tranquility and stability in Afghanistan would be to benefit of the region and world as a whole. Tashkent conference and such other sessions can create an atmosphere of trust, bringing the countries of the region together answer many questions. We hope the participants of Tashkent conference reach a consensus and accept that a peaceful and stable Afghanistan is to the interest of the region and the world.

Kabul (BNA) changing the disastrous and challenging situation, the region is facing needs the honest cooperation of Pakistan. Now it depends on Pakistani authorities how to deal with its obligation and provides the ground for restoring its lost trust.
BNA political analyst commenting on the issue writes the region is a critical and grave situation and dispute originate from adventurous dealing of Pakistan, if not managed well, can convert in a real crisis.
When we talk about terrorism, spreading extremism and other smear competitions, unintentionally the name of Pakistan come to our mind and that is because Pakistan is behind all these grave and evil acts.
Adopting such a stance by Pakistan has led to isolation of that country and increased the international community pressure on that country. 
Today Pakistan is under great pressure; the country is not only in political isolation but decreased its trade in the region and lost its credibility among the various countries.
Pakistani authorities are trying to rid their country from this grave situation, but because of their dual policy they have not succeeded to do so.
Recently Pakistani authorities have made a series of visits to a number of countries and made new commitments but unfortunately there is no any change so far in its policy regarding Taliban and other terrorist terrorist groups. Taliban leaders are still in Pakistan and continue recruiting, training and equipping Taliban as before.
Recent Kabul was the host of the security adviser of Pakistan and the prime minister of that country visited America to change the situation there in to the benefit of Pakistan but the response was not what Pakistan expected. The American vice president frankly said to Pakistani prime minister that Pakistan should step up its efforts for defeating Taliban and Haqi’s group and adopt practical measures for fighting against terrorism.
In Kabul the authorities in meeting the Pakistan security adviser insisted on constructive and honest cooperation of that country and suggested a visit of Pakistan prime minister to Kabul in near future.
This indicates that Kabul in spite all Pakistan sympathies with terrorist and extremist groups, continues negotiations with high ranking official of Pakistan to further strengthen the logic of peace and replace the idea of cooperation and reconciliation with evil rivalries and adventurism.
Therefore, Afghan people expect the prime minister of Pakistan before visiting Kabul prove his strong and honest intention in fighting against terrorism and extremism and being a good neighbor for Afghanistan and a real and honest cooperator for world community

Kabul (BNA) There are evidences that demonstrate that big terrorist groups in geography of Islamic countries are seeking to establish a great coalition.
BNA reporter reporting the issue writes IS and Al-Qaeda are among the terrorist groups that are trying for establishing such a coalition.
Although, the world community knows those two groups as extremist groups and have bad memories from their criminal and inhuman deeds, but they are thinking about their survival and seeking to settle their inner problems.
The words have been stated in time, while with emergence of IS, Al-Qaeda had a competitive stance against the group. But now, they are seeking to remove the differences and act in coordination. This is clearly echoed in a report released by United Nations Security Council.
UN Security Council in its report insisted that Al-Qaeda has repeatedly asked for the unity of these terrorist groups, while IS has remained as an extremist group aiming to establish an Islamic caliphate. Al- Qaeda increasing its activities moving toward capturing power and in some areas its threats felt more than IS. 

According to UN Security Council some members of IS and Al-Qaeda are interested to support each other in organizing terrorist attacks.
Therefore, the coalition between these two groups can be considered a new threat in some areas.
Amin Zawahiri the leader of Al-Qaeda addressing his supporters insisted that unity, solidarity and cooperation with each other were the main factors for victory and freedom.
The prospect for forming a single terrorist group, after the collapse of IS has gotten momentum. IS using its critical situation will conduct terrorist attacks across the world, but  their common goals and interests are driving them toward solidarity under the cover of so called Global Jihad.
According to political experts the UN Security Council should not ignorance the efforts of IS and Al-Qaeda for establishing a coalition because it would have a grave consequences. Therefore it would be better for UN Security Council to find a practical way to prevent, the groups to implement their ominous plan.

The Independent Commission of Elections is set up July 7th for holding parliamentary elections in the country, but recently the commission is talking about suspending the process.
Wasema Badghisy the operative deputy of election commission in one of her interviews has talked about three month delay in the process.
Although, three month delay in holding the elections has not yet formally confirmed by the commission, but the statements of that high ranking official of the commission regarding to delay of the elections have caused concern among people, politicians and civil society activists.
In the critical situation of Afghanistan, delay in this national program can increase the distrust of people to the state and identifies the government as an incapable government.
In addition, any suspension and delay of the program could be an achievement for political critics of the state and will make their criticism more serious.
The political experts and the activists of civil society insist that the politician and the authorities of state should not accept their plans and views to the people. The independent commission of elections should manage its activities in a better way and becomes ready for timely holding the elections.
It is require for independent commission of elections to finalize the constituencies of elections and the list of voters and present its technical and logistical problem to the state.
It should be mention that holding elections is the demand of Afghan people and international community and realizing it, is the commitment of the authorities for promoting the process of democracy in the country.  No any other option replaces it and satisfies the people.
