Kabul (BNA) The special envoy of US for Afghanistan and Pakistan in his recent speech has said that he recognized Durand Line as an international border between the two countries.
According to BNA report Mr. Grossman the US special envoy for Afghanistan and Pakistan interviewing with an Afghan TV has said that Durand Line was an international border line between Afghanistan and Pakistan and US recognized it as a border.
At the same time this American diplomat considers the military operation in frontier regions, the work of Pakistan army.
Although, Afghan government is skeptical about correctness and non- correctness of this American official’s recent statement but the politicians consider the statement as a new change in American techniques in the region.
During the last ten years of Americans presence in Afghanistan, they have changed their stand on Pakistan, sometimes considered it as a sponsor of terrorism and clearly have said choose one: supporting of terrorism or friendship and cooperation with US.
While Pakistan during the last ten years always   in consultation with its intelligence service has played a double game   with US and its western allies in Afghanistan.
Politicians say, the recent statement by US special envoy for Afghanistan and Pakistan indicates that America once again has focused its attention on Pakistan and pretends that it follows the situation in Afghanistan as Pakistan wishes.
There are numerous issues that show Pakistan using its geopolitical situation has made US to follow its policies in the region. The US for safe withdrawal of its troops from Afghanistan needs to use Pakistan territory as a transit road, so Pakistan understanding this puts pressure on US to meet its demands in the region.
The US special envoy raises the Durand Line as a border line between Afghanistan and Pakistan while since the establishment of Pakistan as a country no any Afghan governments including Taliban the obvious mercenaries of that country have not recognized  Durand Line as border line and had been a problem between the two countries  since then.
On the other hand, there is no need for recognition of this colonialist border line, it is just the right of Afghan people to make a decision in that regard as the Afghan president has earlier said,” No leader in Afghanistan has the right to recognize the Durand Line, but the problem could be settled only via a national decision.”
Meanwhile, Mr. Emal Faizi the spokesman of president Karzai does not believe that Mr. Grossman to make such a statement because he didn’t raise this issue when met the president.
Politicians say what Mr. Grossman has raised and if it be interpreted correctly, without doubt it would be considered his personal view in the future, but it is for Afghan authorities to think about it in order to know what is behind these irresponsible words.
