Kabul (BNA) NATO has declared that it would continue its mission which is training and strengthening Afghan security forces.
BNS analyst commenting on the issue writes recently NATO member countries defense ministers committing their support from Afghan security forces concluded their session at Brussels the headquarters of that organization. Meanwhile they have said that they would maintain their forces in Kabul and other cities of Afghanistan. The NATO general secretary has said that they would continue to consult and support Afghan security forces, because, they need our support. The session of NATO member countries defense ministers has held on the eve of the summit of the countries due to be hold in Warsaw the capital of Poland next month. At the summit, Afghanistan and the cooperation of NATO to that country will be at focus of discussion. The participants of the summit will renew their commitment regarding to financially, logistically and weaponry supporting Afghan security forces. What have discussed at the session of NATO defense ministers and agreed upon is good news for Afghan people who fight against terrorism that threatens the whole world. Therefore, it would be the moral obligation of international community to support Afghan forces in this horrible struggle against terrorism.
What the defense ministers of NATO member countries agreed at their last session and what will discuss at Warsaw conference will affect the security, political and economic situation of Afghanistan, but it is a clear fact that such aids, mainly depend on condition of the country. Certain circles in western countries repeatedly claimed that Afghanistan is a burden on shoulders of international community, but the Afghans rejecting that say, they have never wanted to be a burden on shoulders of international community, but, the problem is that the current problem in Afghanistan has foreign factors. Our country is the prey of great games and ambitious objectives of foreign countries that use terrorist and extremist groups as a means for achieving those evil and hideous goals. Therefore, for settling the problem there is an urgent need for an international gathering and solidarity among all nations. The Afghan people expect NATO and other countries that helped Afghanistan in war against terrorism for long years to pay their intention for settling the problem forever. Because, funding and equipping Afghan forces are not responsive to the current situation of the country. Capacity building made so far is not enough and the process of equipping air force is slow. Afghans expect the donor countries and NATO that are committed to support Afghanistan to support and equip Afghan security forces with up to date weapons to fight successfully against terrorism and eradicate that ominous phenomenon forever and rescue the humanity from the peril of it.

Kabul (BNA)  The recent provocations of Pakistani militarists along the so called 
Durand Line in Torkham area is a clear violation of international standards and criteria, therefore, there is a need for international credible organizations to intervene and prevent the escalation of further tension.
BNA political analyst commenting on the issue writes the situation along Durand Line due to illegal and provocative military activities of Pakistani militarists is tense. The Pakistani army with unjustifiable programs and using weapons has caused armed clashes, is responsible for killing of people on both sides of Durand Line.
The problem emerged, after Pakistani militia without informing border military in charges started military constructions, which sparked the reaction of the Afghan forces, our people expected.
In exchange, of fire from both sides of Durand Line that caused casualties and destruction on both sides, the Pakistani side without double will bear the consequences of that.
What had happened during the recent days is a regrettable and shameful incident. A violation that is not new, the Afghans have been witnessing such tyrannical violating for long years along imaginary Durand Line. Earlier, often Pakistani army have also committed such ferocious violations in Paktika, Kunar, Nangarhar, paktia, Zabul, Helmand … .   
The problem is not only the construction of Pakistani military bases on Torkham, but it goes much beyond. Pakistani militarists in pretext of counter terror fighting, management of the borders, preventing illegally crossing the borders is thinking about its hegemony and prominence over Durand Line. If Pakistan is honest on fighting against terrorism, the leaders of all terrorist groups including Taliban, Haqani’s notorious network, Daesh and other terrorist groups such as Al- Qaeda are living in Pakistan. If the sanctuaries of these evil groups were destroyed in Pakistan territory, there would be no any problem in fighting against terrorism, there would be no illegal crossing the border and there would be no place for Pakistani pretexts, mostly resort.
As it mentioned above, the construction of military base, is not the only problem, Pakistan for achieving its regional illegal objectives uses Taliban and other terrorist groups in proxy war again Afghanistan. The recent provocations in Torkham are a part of violations Pakistan has committed for achieving that hegemonic goal.
Now, it is the time, the Afghan leadership based on commitments for their people raise the inhuman deed of Pakistan in credible international organizations such as UN, Conference of Islamic Countries and other regional associations and launching an extensive diplomatic campaign further isolate Pakistan among the countries of the world.

Kabul (BNA)  While Afghanistan is suffering more security challenges during the current year than the previous years, the special UN envoy says the terrorists from other countries are interring Afghanistan.
BNA commentator writes regarding to issue, recently the UN special envoy for Afghanistan visited Faryab province where has seen the terrorists attacks, very armed oppositions attacks and the presence of malty nationalities groups. The visiting of this UN senior official may be a fact-finding mission from the realities in Afghanistan.
The UN special envoy for Afghanistan while visiting Faryab province made it clear that terrorists from other countries are interring Afghanistan. He openly declares a fact that the international community pays little attention on it, while hundredds of foreign terrorists beside armed Taliban are fighting against Afghan security forces and they are the main factor for instability in our country.
The UN special envoy statement came in a time, during the last month huge number foreign terrorists who were fighting side by side of armed Taliban against Afghan security forces have killed because of air attacks launched by Afghan forces. Also, local leaders of Daesh such as Hafiz Sayed , Shahidullah Shahid , Gulzaman, Jehad yar were all Pakistani nationals  who were carrying terrorist activities in Afghanistan.
Previously, the security authorities and local security officials from some provinces repeatedly have reported about the warned about the presence of foreign terrorists in several provinces of our country, unfortunately, the international community and particularly the countries that have commitments regarding to ensuring security in Afghanistan ignored these warnings.
Despite of these facts the international community did not focus on sources that are funding, training, equips the terrorists outside the Afghan borders, and send them for bloodshed and destructions in to Afghanistan.
What recently the special envoy of UN has said is another document about the realities in Afghanistan should be presented in UN Security Council and attracts the attention of the council in to Afghan problems originated from foreign intervention in order to find a solution for this fatal problem.

Kabul (BNA) Afghanistan is among vulnerable countries of natural disasters, lack of preventive measures and shortage of physical materials and facilities have caused our compatriots to lose their lives in natural disasters every year.
BNA analyst commenting on the issue writes, recently a conference on the occasion of international day on reduction of natural disasters was held to talk about natural disasters and to adopt effective measures in order to reduce the casualties and damages caused by natural disasters. The natural horrible disasters in 1392 proved that how vulnerable is Afghanistan from natural disasters. Natural disasters such as landslide in Barikab-Argo district of Badakhshan province, horrible floods in Jozjan, Sar-e-Pul, Faryab, Badghis, Logar, Kunar and Nangarhar provinces caused heavy casualties and financial damages. Also seasonal snowing and heavy raining which cause the vising water of the rivers which leads to the destructive of roads and agricultural fields, all these indicate that our country is faced to a serious and fatal menace of natural disasters, while there is no proper preventive measure against the threat. According to the relevant authorities only in 1392 as a result of natural disasters 727 lost their lives, 104 people injured and 12720 houses and over 43333 across of agricultural lands damaged.
The above figures show that alongside terrorist activities the wrath of nature also claims the lives of our poor people and cause heavy destructions. Although, prevention of natural disaster is in possible in this situations, but can reduce the casualties and destructions to its lowest by adopting effective and practicable measures. So, the relevant organs and authorities using their previous experiences should take effective measures for reduction of the fatal consequences of natural disasters and to provide family essential materials and shelters for the victims of unpredicted disasters, before the occurrence of a disaster.
