Kabul (BNA) Pakistani authorities have committed to US foreign ministry envoy that they will cooperate peace process in Afghanistan and strengthen this process.
BNA commenting in the process writes Zulmay Khalilzad US special envoy for Afghanistan has started the new phase of his tour in to the countries of the region. He after talking with Afghan authorities on Thursday in Kabul arrive
d Islamabad the capital of Pakistan and held talks with Omeran Khan the prime minister and Shah Mahmood Quraishi the foreign minister of that country.
Quraishi ensured Khalilzad once again ensured that Pakistan will closely cooperate, US in settling Afghan problem and strengthening peace talks.
Khalilzad’s visit to the region is accompanied with new political developments. Earlier to him Omer Daweedzai the special envoy of the country’s had a visit to Pakistan to attend a regional gathering. In his return he pointed out that there have been great changes in politicians and spirituals leaders of Pakistan. They are ready for cooperation with Afghan government in strengthening peace process with Afghan government.  As Maulana Fazlul Rahman the serious supporter of Taliban in Pakistan, changing his position said that Afghan war was not jihad and Mullah Abdul Manan Nayazy  a leader of breakaway section of Taliban supported holding direct talks with Afghan government.
All these facts indicate that peace process in Afghanistan is accompanied with positive developments but should not too encourage for the process.
There is no doubt that the main player in Afghan dispute is Pakistan and this country can help and cooperate in process of peace in Afghanistan. Although, Pakistan has expressed its support for ensuring peace and stability in Afghanistan, but not cooperated honestly so far, to achieved US and Afghanistan satisfaction in that regard.
While Afghanistan has still remained a security challenged for the region but the continuation of this problem is not only a problem for Afghanistan but is a problem and more expensive for other countries of the region and unfortunately passing each day, a new player enters Afghan problem.
Among them, Pakistan is seeking to take more privileges from America.
Pakistan using Afghan problem as a means, wants to receive assistance and in regional issues such as Kashmir issue and not be an isolated country anymore.
If Pakistan achieves its regional objective in the region, it supports peace process in Afghanistan. While Afghan people insist that Afghan people insist that Afghan problem should not be used as a means for dealing.
The foreigners including America, Pakistan, Russia or Iran should accelerate peace process in Afghanistan, the other issues are depending to Afghans to settle according to their own interests and will.
However the countries of the region and international countries are strongly believer that military victory in Afghanistan is impossible, just can achieve peace in the country through political agreement that integrate Taliban to political system of the country.  But all parts believe that the process of peace should be continued under the leadership of Afghans, because Afghans directly take benefit from peace in Afghanistan, other countries should work as facilitators of the process.
It would be better the foreigners to hold for settling Afghan people and avoid all political games and competition in the issue.
