Kabul (BNA) Afghan people expect its international friends and neighboring countries in their rivalries and competitions observe and respect our interests.
BNA political analyst commenting on the issue writes after US decided to withdraw from   nuclear deal with Iran, America warned Iran of imposing new sanctions against that country.  The decision caused concerns of Afghanistan that sanctions will badly affect Chahbahar Border which Afghanistan use it for its commercial purposes 
The US secretary of state recently has said that his country ousting from nuclear deal with Iran would impose severe sanctions against Iran. But what is caused concern is that the companies and the banks that invested for building Chahbahar border will not invest anymore because of Americans threats.
The banks and companies fearing from punishment and fining by US will not invest in building Chahbahar border.
Due to these concerns so far two Chinese, one Finish and one Indian company have stopped their constructional work in Chahbahar.
Chahbahar border   as a great economic project which connects land- locked Afghanistan via Iran to the sea inaugurated in spring of last year.
Afghanistan due to relying on just Pakistani borders has sustained a lot of problems for many years because that country used transit roads as a political means for achieving its illegal objectives and never observed international conventions on land locked courtiers’ access right to the sea. Particularly, Pakistan tried hard using transit barriers to disrupt commercial relations between Afghanistan and India.  This made Afghanistan to seek an alternative road to the sea. Chahbahar as a proper place that can connect land locked Afghanistan and meet that goal this is access to the sea and to its traditional friend India.
Considering their economic interests, Afghan people expect US and their neighbor Iran not to involve Afghanistan in these games.
Chahbahar is an example of regional cooperation should not become the victim of political conspiracies
We hope the current tensions between US and Iran not harm Afghanistan’s interests. 
Meanwhile, it would be necessary for Afghan authorities to raise Chabahar issue and possible effects of US sanctions on Iran on Afghanistan’s commercial interests in an active diplomacy with US, Iran and India to find a way for the solution of the problem.
