Kabul (BNA) Afghanistan continues to its progress and development in 2014 and after that and never sets back.
BNA political analyst writes:
The process of development and prosperity of the country and the implementation of step by step handover of security responsibilities from international forced to Afghan forces build up confidence among Afghan people that Afghanistan will never return back to the dark period that they have previously experienced.
The process of liberalizations and democratization further expands and develops with the bravery of Afghan nation.
While the Afghans have such a strong belief and faith on the future of their country, some western media misjudging about the next two years of Afghanistan, with improper and unrealistic analysis and propagations instilling the poison in mind of people, wrongly claim that after 2014 the tragedies of last decades are repeated in Afghanistan and once again the country will be changed in to a battle front among armed groups.  Such judgments indicate that still there are certain media and circles in west that make endeavor to hide the realities and with baseless and poisonous propagations disrupt the public minds and draw a dark image of the future for Afghan people.
For these misconceived, it is enough to say that so far three steps of handing over of security responsibilities from international forces to Afghan security forces has ended successfully and the armed forces of the country in spite of such hostile judgments have fulfilled their commitments in insuring security in most parts of the country where no more international forces exist and even prevented the occurrence of some bloody and painful incidences. Defending from national interests is an internationally accepted right of people and the Afghans deeply know about this right and are ready to fight for ensuring this right and never come under the influence of such evil propagations and recognize the perpetrators of these propagations  and their evil intentions.
In such a situation, if a media of the country follows the above foreign media and tries to demoralize the people of the country, without doubt for the interests of others ignores its national interests.
Hamid Karzai the president of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan in his radio address pointing to this issue said that defending the high interests of the country was an internationally accepted norm and every country endeavors for ensuring its national interests. Regarding to the international issues, especially between two countries each country makes its best efforts to achieve greater interests. For accessing this aim which is natural, media play an effective role. For carrying out their foreign policies the countries all over the world use media as a means.
This kind of propagations is not usually based on realities and can call it a propagation war.
With analyzing the issue it becomes clear that certain media have started propagation war against Afghanistan and our people already know and should know that such judgments are not based on truth and realities and the truths and the realities are what the president says and the realities of the country confirm them.
