Kabul (BNA) Henna Rabani foreign minister of Pakistan in her recent assertions has said that 49 countries could not solve the problems in Afghanistan, how one can assume that Pakistan alone can restore security in that country.
Analysts say in case Pakistan honestly cooperates in the struggle against terrorism she can resolve the problems in Afghanistan and in the region.
Time and again Pakistan has declared that may the role of Pakistan in the Afghan issues are ignored.
On the basis of these assertions that the chairman of the High Peace Council visited Pakistan and asked the authorities in Pakistan to actively participate in the peace process in Afghanistan.
Releasing of the Taliban prisoners by the Pakistani authorities was agreed during that visit.
On the other hand, Afghanistan and especially its leadership have emphasized that terrorism is not in the villages of Afghanistan while the center for their training and their financing sources are outside Afghanistan.
In addition, the analysts by understanding of this reality emphasized that peace talks with the Taliban should not take place but with Pakistan can be effective.
Barak Obama in his meeting with president Karzai in Washington asked the neighboring countries of Afghanistan to assist Afghanistan in its peace process and called peace in Afghanistan, peace in the region.
So the main side in the peace process in Afghanistan is Pakistan.

Kabul (BNA) Though some circles consider the election of 1392 full of challenges and call security as the greatest problem but ISAF says:”
In order to ensure security of the presidential elections they will have active presence”.
It is expected that the people of Afghanistan in spring of 1392 will be witness to holding of the presidential elections, and though 15 months have been left for the elections but the security issue is at the top of challenges.
Concerns in respect to the elections has come about with the withdrawal of foreign forces while the afghan security forces are saying that they have from now on have adopted measures of ensuring the security during the elections and a considerable force will be deployed for the elections and any concern is meaningless.
Holding the presidential elections and withdrawal of foreign forces in 2014 have been programmed, but the ISAF spokesperson says that during the election adequate forces will be present in Afghanistan who will participate under the leadership of the Afghan security forces.
General Gunther Leitz said yesterday that no doubt that the leadership of security during the election will be with the Afghans but ISAF at that time will have enough forces in Afghanistan and in case of request we shall cooperate.
Another issue that the ISAF spokesperson mentioned was the execution of security transition, he added that contrary to the allegations of some western media, he said that security in the regions where the transition has taken place is showing about 14% improvement.
Afghanistan has taken almost 80% of the security transition in the country and the military operations are carried independently by the Afghan security forces.
The ISAF spokesperson confirmed that in recent months the casualty of Afghan forces has been increased and the reason for that is taking over the security of more regions and expansion of their area of operations.
