Kabul (BNA) Whereas, Afghanistan and Pakistan experiencing a tense relation, China has expressed readiness to mediate between Kabul and Islamabad.
BNA political analyst commenting on the issue writes President Ghani in the sideline of Shanghai member countries session met Chinese president. During the meeting the two leaders discussing the regional problems, insisted on settle the current problems of the region, the Chinese president expressed readiness hosting a tripartite session mediate between Afghanistan and Pakistan.
Likewise, President Ghani in meeting with Nawaz Sharif Pakistani prime minister agreed on revival of quadripartite session among Kabul, Islamabad, Washington, and Beijing, which had held earlier in Kabul and Islamabad.
Afghan political experts believe agreement on those two issues can accelerate the peace process in Afghanistan.
In addition, agreeing on the issues indicates that Islamic Republic of Afghanistan insists on political solution of Afghan issue and uses every opportunity for achieving this humane objective.
As earlier Afghanistan has declared that, it uses the possibilities and influence of countries and especially the circles they are enjoying of having influence on armed opposition groups in settling Afghan problem.
Inviting the countries like Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Pakistan … for settling Afghan problem clearly indicates that Islamic Republic of Afghanistan is seriously committed settling the current problem via international partnership. However, what is important is that, the Afghan people expect the cooperation of the countries should base on Afghan people interests, honoring constitution of the country and protecting the achievements acquired during the last fifteen years.
The Afghan people welcome the intention of the leadership of Peoples Republic of China who are ready to mediate between Afghanistan and Pakistan the country that, considered uses Taliban as a means for achieving its objectives in Afghanistan. It should be notice that Afghanistan earlier also agreed and honored mediation of some friendly countries, unfortunately without any positive result.
During the reign of Hamid Karzai the then president of the country, several times negotiations with Pakistani government hosted by the British and Turkish governments held. Afghanistan agreed on holding quadripartite sessions with the participation of Afghanistan, Pakistan, USA, and China and Afghanistan with good intention and honesty participated in the sessions. Now Afghanistan as before is ready to participate in negotiations with Pakistan hosted by Chinese government. However, having the previous experiences, we are not certain that Pakistan honestly participates in such talks.
Afghan people expect the countries that are ready to work for improving relations between Afghanistan and Pakistan and restoring peace and stability in the region should know that wither Pakistan is honest regarding its commitments or not?
Currently Afghan people have not seen honesty in Pakistan policies, unless the friendly countries such as Republic of China assure that Pakistan is seeking regional interests and is honest in that regard and not seeking opportunity for rescuing itself from international isolation.
