Kabul (BNA) The eighth year and the 16th round of national assembly has started today. From now on  the people expects their representatives start this round of their working career with commitment to peace and healing the bloody wounds of Afghan nation.
BNA social affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes there is no doubt that the people’s representatives starts this round while the people were dissatisfied with their activities in previous rounds. Some people look in to the representatives of parliament they have acquired this high position from the address of people, but some others going beyond that say focusing on activities of members of parliament it would be difficult to call the national assembly as the house of nation.
The existence of such viewpoints in war torn Afghanistan is a reality but a bitter fact is that the people are dissatisfied with work their representatives have performed so far in parliament.
With this brief introduction, beside other issues the representatives of people should try hard to rebuild the trust bridge  between the people and parliament damaged and considering the demands and will of people, honestly work for ensuring peace and stability without any political, ethnical, linguistic etc. proclivities harmful for our national unity.
The people say that they have elected the representatives to improve political, security and social situation in the country not for using the name of people to follow their own objectives which would harmful for the country and further caused the hatred of people.
The attracting the trust of people can increase the dignity and honor of the representatives should not become the victims of political, ethnical, linguistic etc. in that  case the people have the right to take back their trust.
The country is passing through a very critical situation, it already suffering from imposed war, political, ethnical proclivities on one hand; on the other hand a poor economy and unemployment have left no patience to people. The people express concern that in general sessions of parliament the seats would remain vacant and majority of members of parliament would not attend the sessions that determine the fate of the country and people. It would be advisable to listen, learn and serve the people, because only, in this way one can obtain the trust of people.

Kabul (BNA) The National Security Directorate has discovered and collapsed a hideout of IS in Kabul and detained two members of this terrorist group.
BNA military affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes the national security directorate recently reported about arresting of two important members of IS in Kabul, one of them had the responsibility of the group and the other was in charge of attracting and recruiting for the group.
The arrested people were the main people who planned the attack on Imam Zaman Mosque and confessed on their crime.
The attack on the mosque in Khair Khana area a number of or compatriots was martyred and a number injured.
Capturing those two key members is one of the main achievements of National Security Directorate from whom no terrorist can hide anywhere.
The event toke place in a time, the national security forces sometimes ago discovered a hideout of IS terrorist group in Qala –I – Wahid area Kabul city from where the group managed their terrorist activities and destroyed it. In addition, a number of IS personnel were killed in commandoes or aerial attacks. IS members have sustained heavy casualties and loses during the recent months and days which are the examples of the main achievements of brave security forces obtained in fighting against terrorist groups.
As it mentioned, the national security forces have acted decisively against terrorists. Presently, the relevant security forces have a long list of terrorists, some of the already arrested and are behind the bars of the prison.
Arresting the criminals, gives the hope that the murderers of people cannot flee from the hand of our brave and devoted security forces, but people only satisfy when justice implements against those criminals.  Presently as the in charges of the prisons of the country say there are more than 700 criminals in jails who have committed the most heinous crimes and sentences to death. Although a number of them have passed more than 16 years in prison but still have not executed.
The people insist that the existence of terrorists who have committed horrible crimes against our innocent citizens and damaged our country should honor as guests in the prison, they should be taken to the gallows and hang,     
Ensuring justice is a serious demand of people; meanwhile it is a commitment of the authorities to put it in practice.

Kabul (BNA) Settling the current problems of the region requires the cooperation and coordination of the countries of the region not controversy, for ending the problems should act with a practical strategy.
BNA political analyst commenting on the issue writes recently the foreign ministers of Russia and Pakistan held a meeting in Moscow aiming to coordinate the activities of the two countries over counter straggle against terrorism and drug trafficking. Again as the past, the increasing activities of terrorists in Afghanistan and the presence of IS in the country were the focus of discussions between the high ranking officials of the two countries. The Russian foreign ministry in the end of the session, criticizing the US and Afghanistan accusing the two countries for ignoring IS activities in Afghanistan talked about insufficient work of America and NATO against terrorism and drug trafficking in Afghanistan.
In addition the Russian foreign minister as a warning said that Shanghai regional cooperation organization whose member countries are Afghan neighbor countries are adopting practical measures for ending the threats of IS in Afghanistan. It is ridiculous that Khwaja Hafiz the Pakistani foreign minister also talked about the activities of terrorists and the presence of IS in Afghanistan but he did not cleared  that from where international terrorists  come to Afghanistan. According Afghan political elites belief there is no doubt that IS as a savage and ignorant terrorist group is the main factor for destabilizing the countries of the region but there are other terrorist groups should be kept in mind.
But warming relation of Pakistan with Russia whose relations were not so friendly, is political game they want to play for achieving their objectives in the region. In this game, Russia wants to use Pakistan as a means for preventing the influence of America in the region particularly in Central Asia. Likewise, Pakistan wants attracting Russia and china to the scene once again find a place in US programs in the region. Both countries express concern over the presence of IS in Afghanistan accuse Afghan government and US for ignoring IS activities in Afghanistan, but say nothing about Taliban who were behind recent bloody incidents in Kabul.
Pakistan hosts the leaders of terrorist groups and Russia considers the groups as a political section in Afghan case.
The political elites say that Russia and Pakistan openly criticize US and NATO in Afghan case this indicate that the case is a regional and beyond regional problem. The problem is that the big powers and puppets launching such games and establishing projects such as IS and Taliban are seeking to ensure their evil objectives but unfortunately the victims of these heinous games are Afghans. Russia and Pakistan should desist from conducting such games because the policy does not lead to peace but to further destruction of the region. Russia clearly knows who brings IS in to Afghanistan and who hosts the terrorists of central Asia in their own country and also, Pakistan is well aware that now the world knows about who supports,  trains and equips terrorists and makes  them ready for launching horrible attacks that claims the lives many innocent people  including women and children. Therefore friendship like the friendship of Russia and Pakistan is not long lasting but regional cooperation and coordination leads the region to peace and stability and ensures peaceful coexistence in the region.
