Kabul (BNA) Islamic Republic of Afghanistan in a goodwill move released from the prison about 900 prisoners of Taliban.
BNA social affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes Mohammad Ashraf Ghani the president of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan recently after saying Eid prayers declared that about 900 prisoners would be released.  He related the freedom of these prisoners to the decisions of consultancy Loya Jerga (great assembly) held in Kabul on April 29.
Islamic Republic of Afghanistan released the prisoners of Taliban in a time that the political process of Afghan problem is speeding up and consultations for political solution of the problem will be made either in Germany or Doha.
Afghan government is trying to form a domestic gathering and considers it as an effect way for ensuring peace and meeting national goals. So far for hitting those goals or objectives has taken specific measures that clearly indicate that the president’s office is serious for ensuring peace.
President Ghani in advisory Loya Jerga as a goodwill move instructed for the release of 179 Taliban’s prisoners and now instructed for the freedom of another 900 Taliban from the prisons.
The above measures taken by the state can increase the atmosphere of trust and strengthen the process of peace negotiations.  
Although the state measures have been following with great optimism, also have its critics.
A number of state critics believe that the liberty of Taliban can boast their battle fronts. Hamid Karzai the former president in the last months of his rule also released a number of Taliban from the state’s prisons, unfortunately the majority of them return back to Taliban’s battle fronts and fought against the state.
The jailed Taliban had been arrested with the cost of Afghan and foreign forces blood, but only for encouraging Taliban to join peace process have been released.
The Afghan authorities understand the concerns of people the government is committed for establishing a lawful community and will not do anything to fill the battle fronts of Taliban once again.
The release of Taliban naturally takes place in a strategic framework; the strategy using the previous experiences has been adopted that limits the number of released Taliban who return back in to Taliban’s battle fields.
On the other hand the freedom of Taliban from the prisons gives lesson humanity to the leadership of the group and teaches them that Islamic Republic of Afghanistan is seriously and honestly working for ensuring peace and building an atmosphere of trust   in the country and meets its commitments.

Kabul (BNA) Zulmai   Khaliizad the special envoy of US foreign ministry for Afghanistan after visiting Germany has said that the coming negotiations among Afghans would be hosted by Qatar.
BNA political affairs commenting on the issue writes, “He had been attended in the second joint session of US and Europe hosted by Germany and discussed the latest developments on peace process with European authorities.
The participants of the session have talked over Oslo session and inter- Afghan dialogues which will be held, in Qatar and will be hosted by Germany.
Zulmai Khalil Zad also has said that in the session would be talked over starting Afghan inter – dialogues which leads in to preparing a political map for ending the war and asked all Afghan sides to play their role in that regard.
Holding a session among Afghans hosting by Germany and Qatar is an important new that would be a good start for ending hostilities in Afghanistan.
Starting inters – Afghans dialogues were an old dream and demand of Afghan government and people which has presented by Afghan authorities and its people several time.
The Afghan people and government understanding the situation consider forming inter Afghan dialogue a concrete cornerstone for permanent peace in the country.
Islamic Republic of Afghanistan has tried hard for creating an atmosphere of belief and trust had tried hard and belief that enforcing ceasefire can help for creating such an atmosphere.
Besides creating incentives for ceasefire, the Afghan government has launched a series of measures for ending the war, among them freedom of a number of prisoners of Taliban from the prisons of Afghanistan.    
While there are words about holding inter – Afghan talks, without doubt Taliban ignoring inters – Afghan talks will insert to other pretexts. Earlier to this Taliban have visited the representative of US in Jada and ignored meeting with Afghan envoys in United Arabic Republic and were ready to talk only in Doha with foreigners.
The Afghans want to show their intention for peace in Afghanistan.
The corner stone of every peace is ceasefire; the group should honor the demand of people and provide the ground for a ceasefire. 
The other word in this that, Taliban should understand the current situation, in Afghanistan is not the country of previous factional fighting’s among different military sections  and Taliban were called the rescuer of Afghan people, now there are no fictional fighting and there is no an incentive to combat any more.
Taliban should act according to new situation and to do away with criticisms that called them the mercenary solders of other countries specially Pakistanis, involved in war in Afghanistan and the group cannot work independently.  Therefore they should prove that they are independent and dare to meet the Afghans.
Taliban should make act, according to the new situation and prove that they are independent and dare to meet the Afghans.
Holding inter- Afghan dialogues in Berlin, Moscow or Jada is a good word but we Afghans expect and hope that the foreigners that they should have a good definition from Afghan peace process and not interfere in that.

Kabul (BNA) While Eid is a good opportunity for reconciliation and forgetting the hostilities, Mullah Hibatullah the leader of Taliban in a message on occasion of Eid- ul – Fitr insists on continuation of war and once again spread hatred.
BNA social affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes while efforts for ending war in Afghanistan in national and international level increased and the contacts of Afghan politicians and a number of world countries with Taliban have increased that brought  hopes for solving this long crisis. But regretfully, the message of Taliban leader published on occasion of Eid – ul – Fitr   indicates that the group don not believe to peace and peaceful life.
Mullah Hibatullah   the leader of Taliban has said that the group would continue fighting until he achieve his objectives. Also, the Taliban leader in his message calls for ending the war but showed no any intention for establishing ceasefire.
Although, Mullah Hibatullah says that he was in favor of ending war but ignores ceasefire that is the main point for ending any conflict.
Insisting on continuation of war tries to talk from a high position in negotiations with Americans, while people around the world specially Muslims never call carrying suicide and explosions in Kabul and other places, killing the students and employees of an organ jihad and  honor for such criminal deeds.
Peace is the major demand of Afghan people, the happy and warm presence of Taliban in towns and cities during the last year’s Eid – ul – Fitr clearly showed that the ordinary men of the group how much interested to peace and much hatred again fighting and conflict.
The happiness ordinary Taliban in last Eid weakened the moral of the group and made the leadership of the group to not accept holding ceasefire during the coming Eid.
While the stance and view of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan is completely humanistic and Afghani as the spokesman of presidency says that the Afghan government is ready for ceasefire and inter Afghans dialogues.
The Islamic Republic of Afghanistan using every opportunity wants to save the lives of the citizens that is be ceasefire during Eid or other religious or historical occasions, just wan improve the atmosphere of trust among Afghan suffering nation.
The stance of Mullah Hibatullah that insists on continuation of war and the stance of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan that use any opportunity to save the lives of people clearly show that who is in favor peace and who prevent and create obstacles on the way of peace, destroy the country and kill innocent people.

In the session the security authorities explaining the security situation in Kabul city, expressed their views and programs in that regard.
The president instructed the security authorities to arrest illegal armed groups and terrorists as soon as possible and assure of complete peace and security to Kabul citizens on the eve of  Eid- ul – fitr .
The session has been held in time, Kabul is experiencing a fragile security and its citizens are seeing one or several terrorist or criminal incidents.
The terrorists and criminals both are harassing the residents of Kabul and spare no any evil act against the residents of the capital.
Kabul during Ramadan experienced the worst security situation, such as attacks on security posts in Doughabad seventh precinct and in Pul –I – Charkhi area ninth precinct,  laying bomb in a mosque in ninth precinct,  using explosive device in a vehicle transporting the employees of Haj and Donation Ministry and the shocking mass killing of seven members of a family in Karta- i- Sakhi , assassinating two young people in Panjsad Family area and tenths of other criminal incidents were the most horrible incidents that shocked  Kabul which has the six million residents but no security.
Kabul citizens say, their city has been changed in to a ghost,  the relevant security authorities are talking a lot about security and eradicating the factors of violence, unfortunately they did little in practice.

The people say that insecurity in neighboring provinces of Kabul and presence of armed groups affiliated to Taliban in Qarabagh, Mosahi and khak – i- Jabar  districts   have provided the ground for terrorist activities inside the Kabul city, beside that the presence of illegal armed people, the presence of illegal weapons in the hands of a number of residents of the capital and supporting certain high ranking authorities from them have failed security forces to overcome the criminals and terrorists.
The president precisely and timely knowing the situation says that he is serious for ensuring security in Kabul city and in removing the concerns of its inhabitants.
What have the president committed for people the security, executive and justice and judicial organs are obliged for implementing them in practice.
