Commentary

Tuesday, December 11, 2018
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.
