Kabul (BNA) Any decision by Pakistan on changing the legal situation of tribal areas will not be acceptable of the residents of the two sides of Durand Line, but it wound not be acceptable for Afghan people either.
BNA political analyst commenting on the issue writes recently Pakistan parliament in a hurried and selfish attempt decided the tribal areas administration be delivered to Pashtun- Khaw state.
The areas under the name of free tribal areas since a long time were governed by Pakistan federal government.
The recent Pakistani government decision is against the deal of 1921 which was signed by the then Afghan government and British India.
The areas that governed by Pakistan is a part of Afghan territory which during the reign of A. Rahman Khan the then king of Afghanistan according to shameful Durand deal delivered to British India.
Afghanistan after acquiring its independence in 1919 until now has   never officially recognized Durand Line and will never recognize it.
Durand is a constant territorial problem between Afghanistan and Pakistan that can be settled only through referring to historical facts.
Therefore, the Pakistani parliament decision for integrating the areas in to Khyber Pushton-Khaw   state considered as a unilateral move would never be acceptable for Afghan people and the residents of the two sides of Durand Line.
Pakistani government takes such a hurried   move exactly in time; military rule prevailed in tribal areas and terrorists from various nationalities use the area as their stronghold and practically faced to horror and suffocation. Pakistani military and militia in cooperation of intelligence services circles have detained the most committed and active figures of tribal areas and nobody knows about whereabouts of many of them up to now.
Pakistan government creating a terror and horror atmosphere in tribal areas wants to give a new legal identity to the area.
While bringing any changes in the area is depend on will and intention of the residents of the two sides of Durand Line who have close racial, ethnical and family relations, in addition the decision has made without and consultation of Afghan government that has problem with Pakistan due to Durand Line.
The Afghan people and state stance on tribal areas since the establishment of Pakistan up to now is clear that is it defends the rights of the people of the area who are deprived from all their primitive rights
This is only the residents of the two sides of Durand Line who can decide about their destiny and any unilateral decision cannot conceal the historical facts over the Durand Line.
