Kabul (BNA) In lack of Afghan state delegation cannot give legality to intra Afghans negotiations.
BNA political affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes: China is ready for holding a session between Taliban and Afghan politicians and the session would be held in Beijing, but Afghan government due to clear reason would not participate in the session.
Afghan authorities consider any session in the name of intra Afghan negotiation until the announcement of the results of presidential election and establishing a new system vain.
Earlier also sessions under the name inter- Afghan negotiations have been held in Moscow and Doha but concluded without any results. The problem was that the Afghan state representatives were not present there. The aim of the sessions was that Taliban express their view.
The people who were attended in the sessions were mostly affected by Taliban and US negotiations, for this reason the participants of Moscow and Doha mostly remain as listeners.
Islamic Republic of Afghanistan does not want political sessions just remain unilateral. They argue that the sessions should remove the hostilities and provided and improve an atmosphere of trust and at last lead Afghanistan to peace and stability.
If look the background of political development of Afghanistan from Moscow and Doha sessions between Afghan politicians to nine rounds of Taliban and US negotiations ant to the negotiations among America, China, Russia and Pakistan all were programs held in abroad while the Afghan state representatives were not attending. At last they failed.
Afghan state wants such a basic and constructive negotiation with various political and armed groups in Afghanistan the end of which is peace and stability in the country.
Many believe that in current political developments mentioned above Taliban had no a clear agenda and strategy on interior issues. The mostly focused on agenda dictated and mostly reflected the foreigners’ interests.
For instance, the first demand of Taliban in their negotiations with United States was withdrawal of foreign forces from Afghanistan while Russia also expressing concern about the presence of American forces in Afghanistan wants the withdrawal of those forces from Afghanistan as soon as possible.
Central Asian countries, Russia and China are concern about the influence of extremism and the west is concern about repetition of September 11 incident but Taliban give them confidence Taliban would not be the factor of influence of extremism and terrorism in to other countries.
Taliban in nine rounds of their talks with America have expressed their will to ceasefire with Americans but frankly reject ceasefire with Afghan forces.
Taliban are fighting against Islamic Republic of Afghanistan as a proxy force of certain countries and Afghanistan is trying to change the situation. Therefore insists on holding inter Afghan negotiations that focus on the interests of Afghanistan.
Therefore, and session be held in Moscow, Doha or other places, in lack of Afghan government delegation would not led to any effective result.

Kabul (BNA) The recent developments in the region showed that the big countries are seeking their own benefits; there is no permanent friendship and hostility for them.
BNA social and financial affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes if we seriously pay attention on Syrian Kurds condition and in general on current situation of that country we find out that what kind of dealings are carrying out in Syria and big powers (Russia and America) with great cleverness created the issues and manage them.
Syrian Kurds who were the most confident sources of US in Middle East on Syria issue and Middle East a few days ago, in fight against IS defended the US interests and sustained heavy sacrifices but today their yesterday’s supporter (America) has released them.
Until yesterday the Syrian Kurds and other tribal minorities in north of Syria were introduced as heroes via western media, but today Trump US president frankly says that fighting of Kurds and Turkey is a territorial integrity war continuing for a century and not depends to America.
The incidents currently occurring in Syria and the incidents occurred after the collapse of Soviet Union in 1919s showed that the big powers are thinking only about their own interests. In political games or dealings there is no permanent friend and enemy but the enemy and friend are chosen according to national interests and the situation prevailed.
Here, the warm and friendly relations between Russia and Pakistan can be a good example.
Pakistan is a country since its establishment until now is defending and moving along Britain and America line and was against the policies and programs of former Soviet Union and present Russia, but after coming under criticism of America due to wrong policies referred Russia and Russia considering the situation opened its bosom to its former to enemy Pakistan and forgot the previous dealings and adventures in order to use Pakistan against its main rival America.
This indicates that the countries are moving along the line of their own interests, if there is a need America release Kurds and if it requires Russia welcomes Pakistan but we Afghans never made a definition from our interests but made a lot sacrifices for the interests of others.
Now Afghans should learn from the previous experiences that current conflict in their country is baseless and imposed by others for ensuring their own interests.
Therefore, it would be necessary for Afghans no wait to receive the key for settling the problems from the others but try to find way of the solution by their own and rescue the country from the current crisis.

Kabul (BNA) The people who make fire on mosques, sacred and public places and commit crimes and killing not only believe not Islam but not believe to basics of humanity also.
BNA religious affairs commenting on the issue writes two explosions took place in in Dehbala district Nangarhar province on Friday that killed more than 70 prayers.
The attack on that mosque clearly indicates that the people who claim Islam loving commit crime in places are holy for our people and worth a lot.
Attack on holly, public places and carrying slaughter among defenseless is not only within the frame of Islam but is contrary to Afghans’ culture and traditions.
However, studying the documents related to destructive activities such as mentioned above we should say that attack on holly and sacred places is a part of programs of aliens intelligence services who want to disseminate extremism in our community and destroy the frame of life and national unity in this country.
Mosques, holy places and funeral ceremonies are all the military targets of the terrorist groups. In addition to committing such brutal deeds they have martyred a number of religious scholars within the same time. Destruction and killing are the major prayers of so called Taliban and other terrorist groups dally carry out.
In conflict of Afghanistan continuing since a long time, armed opposition groups are fighting in the name of Islamic Sharia but against the instructions of holy Quran they kill innocent people, destroy bridges, roads and schools and kill the teachers and students there.
But the reality is this that committing such crimes Taliban and other terrorist groups proves the depth of their ignorance and lack of knowledge from Islamic teachings.
Therefore, it requires the leadership of Taliban and IS once again review their Islamic studies and find out how much activities performing daily are according to Islam and Islamic sharia?
We are sure if Taliban and other groups’ claim of being Muslim find out the correct answer of the above question, desist from killing and destruction and join peace.
We hope Taliban to do so, end violence and live among their compatriots peacefully and take active part in reconstruction of their homeland.

Kabul (BNA) Independent Election Commission should inform the people clearly about the process of election.
Effort for hacking in central server of Independent Election Commission is not just an electoral violation but it a big crime that its culprit should be severely punished.
However, there are disappointing stories that the system or central server of Independent Election has been hacked and the head of IT deportment of that agency has introduced to the office of Attorney General.
The problem is somewhat complicated and concerning because the problem made the independent election commission to invite two German Engineers to Kabul to solve the problem, those two German experts called the problem considerable even concerning.
The German company .those two engineers working for have the main role in activating the biometric system of election commission.
Those two engineers have said that a country or counties of the region have great role in hacking in central server of election commission. Although they have not named any specific country but earlier this the independent election commission had employed a group of engineers from a country in the region, now those engineers are at focus of attention.
A number of electoral staff claims that a specific group had great role in employment of foreign engineers to provide the ground for fabrication in to their own interests.
Now, it depends to independent election commission what program and strategy have for removing the newly created problems?
Especially, there is division among the authorities of this credible agency. One is talking about hacking In central server and information bank of the commission and the other claims that the attack of the hackers have removed, but the people want a clear answers .
The concerns of people are correct and justifiable while the technical means of the commission are not safe, how to believe in to transparency of the elections?
If they are talking about the presence of observers inside election commission, they know nothing about technical operations.
Therefore, it would be necessary the authorities of electoral commissions to focus more on the process of elections especially on internal affairs of the independent election commission.
The country or countries that were involved in hacking in to central server of the commission should be dealt via diplomatic sources and electoral group who have role in this corruptive program should be introduced via media and bring to the court.
The public confidence to the independent election commission comes when the commission responds clearly and frankly about the new developments to the people.
