Kabul (BNA) A tripartite session of high level Afghan, Chinese and Pakistani diplomats holds in Kabul
BNA political affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes the tripartite session of Afghan, Chinese and Pakistani foreign ministers held in Kabul, security cooperation and border issues among the three countries were the main subjects discussed in the session.
Last year, the foreign ministers of the three countries holding a session in Beijing the capital of China discussed the same issues, started and ended with optimisms but the situation remained challenging.
The people believe that it would be better, the participants of three partite sessions in Kabul, instead discussing new issues, explain their achievements after the last year’s session.
If we look precisely at the process of developments of incidents during the last year, there is no any change in the tense situation of Afghanistan in the region. Afghanistan is still in the grip of Pakistan’s wrong policies. Pakistan instead trust building in relation between the two countries, mainly focused over its strategic interests which further spread distrust in the region.
While the situation of Afghanistan is complicated and the condition of the region is not favorable, Afghan people want to know People’s Republic of China as a powerful neighbor of Afghanistan and in the region and an influencing country on Pakistan what has done for decreasing the adventurous policies of Pakistan.
Today, the people are talking about the presence of IS in east and north of Afghanistan. Russian resources blatantly have said that Karachi and Peshawar in Pakistan were the main passing road of IS in to Afghanistan. Therefore when there is talking about security concerns, how much China and Pakistan has responded to Afghanistan concerns regarding to transmitting IS through Pakistan soil in to Afghanistan.
In last year’s session they were talking on trust building, while the people of Afghanistan still distrust Pakistan activities and ask how much Kabul session would be effective in removing the distrusts between Afghanistan and Pakistan relations?
Since a long time we have been witnessing numerous sessions on Afghanistan problem, but unfortunately had no any consequences.
The people insist that the importance of such sessions depends on actions of governments. Diplomatic sessions should not be launched using good words but the commitments and implementing the commitments in practice should be considered as the basic aim.

Kabul (BNA) In a country where for dozens of years’ war continuing talking about human rights would be difficult.
BNA military affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes Afghanistan is for tens of years in flame of imposed war and its people are suffering from the pains and hardships have caused this imposed war.
However, it should not be forgotten that the Afghan community in close cooperation of international community is moving toward a democratic and new society. Considering this important point, has established independent commissions under the name of Human Rights Independent Commission in order to provide the ground for punishment of those violate human rights.
Unfortunately, so far such an opportunity has not provided, but the number of terrorists has increased, new terrorist groups created, using religion as means fight against religion, using the sacred terms of man and freedom fight against man and freedom.
The majority of Afghan people believe those who produce terrorist groups and use them for achieving their political and military objectives in the region and in the world, in reality are main violators of human rights in the world.
There is a general belief that no terrorist group can follow its anti – human rights objectives even for a month without the assistance of foreign countries intelligence services.
In any case, Afghanistan is passing through a difficult political and military phase; the people are talking seriously about war and peace all over the country.
Discussions on human rights issues and protecting the humane values were the pivotal of peace talks with armed oppositions during the last 17 years. The consequences of the talks should not ensure the immunity of war criminals and should not harm democracy and the rule of people. These are concerns that the people present. The people’s will and demands should be observed and look at human rights issues through the eyes of people  who have given sacrifices for years and tortured for years under various names.

Kabul (BNA) Any peace agreement becomes effective when the two sides respect the interest of each other and take firm steps toward ensuring public interests.
BNA social affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes Zalmay Khalilzad the US special for Afghanistan has so far several times visited Taliban representatives and he is optimistic about the negotiations and talking about reaching some agreements. One of the agreements is releasing of Taliban’s prisoners.
Some media especially Pakistani media reported that Taliban in their talks with US foreign ministry envoy have presented a list of ten thousand of their prisoners who are behind bars in Afghan state run prisons.  Probably the two sides in their last negotiations have reach agreement on releasing the prisoners.
Islamic Republic of Afghanistan has said nothing in that regard so far, but persistently insisted that peace negotiation is ownership of Afghans and the achievements of Afghan people would not deal in these negotiations.
Afghan people and government while welcome any move that restore peace and stability in to the country,   but insist that in such negotiations, the release of prisoners who have caused violence, killed and destructed should not be the main issue, there are many other issues that should be given priority.
On the other hand Taliban in any session or move for peace only think about their own interests, while for reaching peace agreement, the two sides should be committed to peace and the interests of each other and honestly take effective steps in the regard.
Peace in not one way street that only the state passes, release the prisoners or gives other privileges. On peace street there is a need both the government and oppositions move parallel in order the interests of both sides ensured.
The war stricken countries experiences who were involved in war for many years then reached understanding demonstrate that they have first agreed on generals and then agreed on every article of the issue.
In such agreements, freedom of prisoners had been a part of the agreement.    
But in Afghanistan such a thing has not seen. In the past thousands of Taliban have been released from prisons but never been effective for peace and mad the battle fields of Taliban warmer. Today we are witnessing the result of it.
It should not forget that Afghan people want peace but the peace that the authorities of the state insist on. This is a honorable, extensive and across Afghanistan peace that ensures national values, not negotiations aiming just the release of a number of prisoners.

Kabul (BNA) Police and other security forces are the enforcing law personnel who make their best efforts for security and tranquility of the people. Therefore, firing and killing these public serving people considers as invasion to public interests and national treason. The people who commit such crimes and national treason should be dealt seriously.
BNA security affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes ministry of interior has started the detaining   of irresponsible people since yesterday that by weapon and force have breached many enforced laws in the country. 
The spokesperson ministry of interior gives a definition from armed irresponsible persons as follow:  the people who by point of gun are exhorting the property of people and breach the laws are irresponsible people.
This definition confirms what have done by Tamim Shansab or have said addressing to Tamim Wardak .
The exhorter, besides not cooperating police in enforcing law, but firing on police, with his armed men fought against security forces for 24 hours killing a policeman injured six others.
He who had earlier managed a security company, have committed violations and misused power. He had dared to commit such heavy crimes because of his family affiliation to a former high ranking military police officer.
The recent incident has put the military authorities; enforce law agencies and judicial organization in a great test. Considering the definition made by ministry of interior from irresponsible armed people, how will they   deal with this armed and powerful man?
The security forces have earlier detained rogue and powerful men from other parts of the country but the program was not extensive. The presence of armed irresponsible people is more tangible in Kabul than any other parts of the country. The example of which was the brutal and inhumane dealing of an irresponsible armed man in Haji Yaquob Square. There are also other people exploiting ethnical and language affiliations usurp people’s properties.
We hope ministry of interior and other security organs with in an extensive way without any exception to do away the evil of irresponsible people. Nothing should deter the ministry from detaining and punishing the rogue irresponsible people in order to meet the demands of people in that regard.
