Kabul (BNA) Shah Mahmood Quraishi Pakistani foreign minister arrived Kabul yesterday in a time the Afghan people expect practical cooperation of that country in the peace process or at least to end its intervention in domestic affairs of Afghanistan.
BNA political analyst commenting on the issue writes Afghan authorities presently hosting Mahmood Quraishi the Pakistan foreign minister.
The visit of Mahmood Quraishi who has been appointed to the position recently is his first visit abroad indicates Afghanistan is at priorities of foreign policies of the newly formed Pakistan government under the leadership of Omron Khan.
Omron Khan becoming the prime minister of Pakistan pledged that he would try to improve relations with two neighboring countries Afghanistan and India which welcomed by both Kabul and New Delhi. We hope, the visit of Mr. Quraishi to Kabul be followed with the same incentive.
Afghanistan and Pakistan as neighbors which are destined to live in an unchangeable geography no any artificial barriers can separate them. Understanding this fact the two countries should respect the national interests of each other because the previous experiences have showed that hostilities and negative rivalries cannot meet the demands of the two great and neighboring nations.
Kabul always insists on regional cooperation and peaceful co-existence and provided good opportunities for close and friendly relations among the countries of the region. But regretfully there are still hegemonic and adventurous ideas in the region that would be certainly harmful for the region.
Afghanistan that is suffering from imposed and proxy war for about 40 years, considers the role of Pakistan effective in ending this bloody and devastating war, because the leaders of Taliban are living in Pakistan and enjoy the support of certain organizations and circles there.
Pakistani high ranking authorities including the president and prime minister of that country have visited Afghanistan in various times. During the visits, they committed to do everything for solution of the problems but the commitments never fulfilled and the problems remained as before.
We hope the current visit of Mr. Quraishi to Kabul not follows the same scenarios but with new thought and conception help to end mistrusts exist in Kabul – Islamabad relations.
