Kabul (BNA): fight against terrorism and insurgency remained as one of the important programs of Afghan government and international community over the last ten years and the joint combat massively weakened the terror organizations and their collaborators in different regions.
It’s a fact that terrorist organizations pursue particular objectives and they strives to politically, socially, economically and mentally suppress the Afghan people and for implementing their satanic designs, the terrorist organizations taking dictations from the neighboring countries.
Terrorism not only threatens Afghanistan, but, also it strongly threatens global peace and stability on 11 September 2001 terror attacks in the US, bombings in London metro and Moscow approve this fact.
Considering damaging impacts of terrorism on world peace, in his recent meeting with General Joseph Dunford, speakers of Afghan parliament declared the menace of terrorism as a common threat to the world community and emphasized on global cooperation for eliminating the menace from the roots and international community should back Afghanistan combating the menace as it a common danger to all and only Afghan forces haven’t capability to overcome on the issue.
However, the neighboring countries have always said that stability in Afghanistan assures global peace and security, but these countries never bothered to take practical steps in fighting terrorism.
Military analysts have said terrorism strongly threaten regional stability, but the neighboring countries in defiance to international laws and intergovernmental ties never contributed honestly in fighting terrorism.
It seems that there are some players in the region that foresee their interests only in devastation of Afghanistan.
Terrorism threatens Afghanistan and global security at a time that international community prepares to withdraw troops from Afghanistan by the end of 2014.
