Kabul (BNA) IS terrorist group that was seeking its dominance over strategic areas of Nangarhar province and making that province in to the center of its terrorist activities once again severely defeated and drove out of Tora Bora.
BNA military affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes early this week, media released the unpleasant and concerning news about the collapse of Tora Bora the most important strategic area in Pachargam district, Nangarhar province;
Although, the security and defense forces of the county ended the new I.S adventures very soon in Tora Bora and failed that notorious group’s dreams for dominance on that military strategic point, but the question arises why did we become short in protecting such military strategic areas.
Tora Bora once where was the strongest trench of Afghan Mujahidin in war against the then Soviet forces, after the victory of Mujahidin, different armed forces using this strategic point as their hideouts, as Asama bin Laden the leader of Al – Qaeda was safe there for a long time. However, after the developments that led to the collapse of Taliban and establishment a new regime, made the authorities of the new government to think, to build Tora Bora as a military stronghold to be under the rule and control of defense forces of the country.
Nevertheless, why did the relevant authorities have not successes to meet that goal during the last fifteen years is questionable. While the terrorist networks have, great interest in that strategic area and have tried their best to have the area under their control. As, late last week, IS drove out Taliban from the area and brought the area under their control.
Afghan Political and military experts say that the people want to find the reality that why IS sometimes disappeared from the area and suddenly emerge and creates barbaric incidents that widely reflect in media.
The experts say that there is an ambiguity in Afghan war, the factors of that should recognized and deal correctly with them. Even members of parliament talking about the recent advances of IS, also presented concerning claims and accusations that should precisely assessed.
Although, IS severely defeated in eastern part of Afghanistan, it should not  considered as the end of the group, because this is a part the project of great game of foreign countries intelligence services they do their best to prevent the complete collapse of this notorious terrorist group. 
There are certain countries that look at IS as a means for achieving their illegal objectives. They should know about the open fact that terrorism is like a sneak; it also stings its trainer.
The current situation asks the countries of the region jointly and in complete unity campaign for settling the current problems of the region that not only threat the region but the entire world.

Kabul (BNA) Aerial corridor between Afghanistan and India for delivering commercial good will inaugurate very soon.
BNA economic affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes it is due to an aerial corridor between Afghanistan and India inaugurate , in this way the process of exchanging commercial goods between the accelerates.
Afghanistan India have close commercial and political ties during the last 15 years.  India is one of five major countries that have made huge assistance in reconstruction of Afghanistan. However, exchanging commercial goods between the two countries exercised certain problems. Transportation of commercial goods earlier carried out via transit roads of Pakistan. Due to tense relation between New Delhi and Islamabad in one hand and other hand, the challenging relation between Kabul and Islamabad badly affected the process of trade between Afghanistan and India.
Continuation of such harassments by Pakistan in transport ting commercial goods of Afghanistan and India through its transit roads, made the two countries to find a way for this problem. The best option was establishing an aerial corridor, the two sides agreed. Now, the project is ready for inauguration and will inaugurate very soon.
The most important thing is that and reflected in statements delivered by the Indian and Afghan authorities is establishing an aerial corridor for transporting commercial goods has never been a political move for deriving the third county to margin from free trade. Establishing this corridor is another example of regional cooperation, an idea Kabul and New Delhi considering it the major principle for the economic growth of the region and insists on its expansion.
From the early times up to now, Afghan authorities have said and insisted that only regional cooperation can vanish poverty from our countries and Afghanistan with its geopolitical location can put this great idea in to practice and will spare no any efforts in that regard . Likewise, Afghanistan instead of extorting to negative and illegal rivalries tries its best to join the nations for providing an atmosphere for regional economic growth. Therefore, Islamic Republic of Afghanistan has provided the ground for realizing big economic projects in the region. As Afghanistan has played a great role in launching the big following projects: TAPI project that carries Turkmenistan’s gas through Afghanistan’s territory to Pakistan and India, CASA 100 project that transfers electricity from central Asian to south Asia, rehabilitation of Silk Road and   construction of Lopes lazuli Road.
Unfortunately, some countries, since Afghanistan is a land – locked country use it as political weapon for achieving it illegal objectives and ignore its transit right. Especially, Pakistan uses trade as a political means and creates problems for Afghan merchants.
Such a grave situation, compelled Afghanistan and trade partner to think finding an alternative transit road and chosen Iran Chah- Bahar border for the purpose and now establishing aerial corridor can meet the demands of Afghan business people and the people of the entire region.
Accessing of Afghanistan to better transit roads once again proves that politicizing trade and economy is a serious mistake. Today Pakistani traders and investors are concern about decreasing trade with Afghanistan, because, by passing each day lose their huge advantages and resources in Afghanistan.
Establishing aerial corridor between Afghanistan and India can effectively affect the economic growth of Afghanistan and its commercial ties with other countries.

Kabul (BNA) Violence and terror acts and sowing the seed of discord among the religious followers cannot deist our people from their humane commitment that is goodwill, fraternity, and ensuring national unity.
BNA military issues analyst commenting on the issue writes recently Al- Zahra Mosque in 13 precinct of Kabul city was the target of a terror attack. Ferocious and dark hearted terrorists affiliated to IS terrorist group, attacking the prayers in a mosque once again openly showing their hostility to Islam, proved that they do not believe to any humanity and Islamic principles.
Terror attack on Al- Zahra Mosque took place after a series of terrorist attacks that its main target was the mosque and worshipers in the mosque.
If last night terrorists attacked the worshipers in Al- Zahra mosque, two weeks ago, they targeted the funeral ceremony of a compatriot in Badam Bagh area that martyred and injured a number of people while who were fast.
Since, terrorists have never observed and believed Islamic creeds, therefore, they have accelerated their inhumane and ferocious attacks in sacred month of Ramadan. Launching a series of terrorist attacks in Khost, Kandahar, Zabul and Nangarhar mercilessly killed a number of our innocent people while they were fast.
Either Taliban or IS have accepted the responsibility of these ferocious attacks who claim they fight Islam, but in fact they act as the enemies of Islam and achieving their foreign masters evil objectives in the region. In an earlier designed program, the terrorists with instruction of their foreign masters kill our people; damage the infrastructure of the country and trying to sow the seed of religious and ethnic prejudices among our people. We are certain they will never reach this evil aim because Afghan people and the security forces of the country knowing the true nature of terrorist groups resolutely and heroically fighting them to the end and not only rescue  their country but the region and entire world  from the evil of terrorism forever.

Kabul (BNA) Environment situation in Afghanistan is concerning, and presently we are witnessing the destruction and pollution of environment than any time before.
BNA ecological analyst commenting on the issue writes from fifth to 11th of June celebrates as a special week for protection of environment every year.
Observing the special week for cleansing environment gives an opportunity for people and the relevant authorities of government to carry out their obligations and duties regarding to the environment and settle the problems in that end.
Holding the special week of environment indicates that we should no spare any practical efforts for keeping clean the environment all the times, especially during the week determined as special environment week. However, unfortunately, the week marks just with holding ceremonial gathering , severely criticizing unknown people who involved in pollution of environment and finally  delivering emotional  rhetoric and promising words in that regard. Regretfully, after these ceremonial meetings and gatherings, emotional speeches and promising words, no one can see any improvement in environment and the situation remains as before.
If we carefully look at situation of environment in the country, green areas and natural resources are damaging mercilessly, and the people who should play their role in keeping the environment clean and settle the problems in that regard they themselves unintentionally  are the main factor for pollution of environment. Therefore, it would the duty of relevant organs and government as whole to inform the people about the harms caused by polluted environment with its catastrophic consequences. It is a fact that without active participation of people in straggle against removing pollution it would difficult to overcome this deadly problem.
Green areas are vanishing in Afghanistan, the major part of forests have damaged and natural resources plundered, the water resources are used in a wrong way and finally wide spaces of pastures  and agricultural areas due to increasing demand have change in to settlement areas. These main factors that influence pollution, the relevant authorities should deeply and find the ways for their removal in order to remove this grave problem.
Other factors that seriously affect and increase environmental pollution in the cities and the country as completely mentioned as follow: cutting forests, damaging agricultural areas, non- standard expansion of cities, unprecedented digging wells, mismanagement of water resources and importing used vehicles and disqualify fuels, should focus seriously.
Knowing the factors and informing the public about the danger of pollution and working practically for removal pollution are the great steps toward decreasing pollution that threats the life of people and for providing a safe environment for current generation and coming generation.

Kabul (BNA) Whereas, Afghanistan and Pakistan experiencing a tense relation, China has expressed readiness to mediate between Kabul and Islamabad.
BNA political analyst commenting on the issue writes President Ghani in the sideline of Shanghai member countries session met Chinese president. During the meeting the two leaders discussing the regional problems, insisted on settle the current problems of the region, the Chinese president expressed readiness hosting a tripartite session mediate between Afghanistan and Pakistan.
Likewise, President Ghani in meeting with Nawaz Sharif Pakistani prime minister agreed on revival of quadripartite session among Kabul, Islamabad, Washington, and Beijing, which had held earlier in Kabul and Islamabad.
Afghan political experts believe agreement on those two issues can accelerate the peace process in Afghanistan.
In addition, agreeing on the issues indicates that Islamic Republic of Afghanistan insists on political solution of Afghan issue and uses every opportunity for achieving this humane objective.
As earlier Afghanistan has declared that, it uses the possibilities and influence of countries and especially the circles they are enjoying of having influence on armed opposition groups in settling Afghan problem.
Inviting the countries like Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Pakistan … for settling Afghan problem clearly indicates that Islamic Republic of Afghanistan is seriously committed settling the current problem via international partnership. However, what is important is that, the Afghan people expect the cooperation of the countries should base on Afghan people interests, honoring constitution of the country and protecting the achievements acquired during the last fifteen years.
The Afghan people welcome the intention of the leadership of Peoples Republic of China who are ready to mediate between Afghanistan and Pakistan the country that, considered uses Taliban as a means for achieving its objectives in Afghanistan. It should be notice that Afghanistan earlier also agreed and honored mediation of some friendly countries, unfortunately without any positive result.
During the reign of Hamid Karzai the then president of the country, several times negotiations with Pakistani government hosted by the British and Turkish governments held. Afghanistan agreed on holding quadripartite sessions with the participation of Afghanistan, Pakistan, USA, and China and Afghanistan with good intention and honesty participated in the sessions. Now Afghanistan as before is ready to participate in negotiations with Pakistan hosted by Chinese government. However, having the previous experiences, we are not certain that Pakistan honestly participates in such talks.
Afghan people expect the countries that are ready to work for improving relations between Afghanistan and Pakistan and restoring peace and stability in the region should know that wither Pakistan is honest regarding its commitments or not?
Currently Afghan people have not seen honesty in Pakistan policies, unless the friendly countries such as Republic of China assure that Pakistan is seeking regional interests and is honest in that regard and not seeking opportunity for rescuing itself from international isolation.

Kabul (BNA) President Ghani in a clear message addressing armed oppositions and other terrorist groups affiliated to them has said that now the time has ended for a group to come to power through killing, bloodshed, and terror.
Abdul Khalil Minawi Director General of Bakhtar News  Agency analyst commenting on the issue writes President Ghani in gathering held on Friday to celebrate the anniversary of Islamic Revolution victory addressing armed oppositions  said that  they should not thing to reach power through killing, bloodshed and terror, because the ones who have reach power through killing and terror they are neither Muslims nor Afghans.
The statements delivered in time, Taliban and other terrorist groups have never surrendered to the logic of peace, mutual understanding, and dialogue and always tried to get to power via using arms and terror and hostage our people.
This notorious group has never had a single and logical stance regarding to the country and that has caused the recent crisis in the country and further complicated and expanded it.
The problem is that Taliban are devoid of an idea and political will and strategy. They only know the culture of fighting against the people to fulfill and implementing the evil objectives of foreigner and are alien to the logic of peace. The continuation of such a situation have made the Afghans to stand in a holy and sacred war against foreign invaders who use Taliban and IS as a means for achieving their goals in the region. The daily victims of this opposed war are Afghans.
As President Ghani says” the existences of these sacrifices are part of the cost that we pay for freedom and liberty. For many decades, our enemies are trying to captivate our people and for achieving this satanic goal spare no any conspiracy.”
Taliban have accustomed to war, destruction, and no nothing about the logic of freedom, construction, tranquility, and stability. If they are not so, why do ignore the will of Afghan people insist on restoring peace and public Tranquility and welfare? In addition, why do they not pay attention to Islamic teaching that calls peace good?
Recently Taliban have announced their so-called spring offensive under the name of Mansoori. Without doubt, such a design and program and providing the ground for conducting such operations cannot be prepared by some Mullahs and the students of religious schools, but there are countries, powerful organizations and intelligence services behind them. The first and the last aim of ill- will countries is destruction of Afghanistan and humiliating its people and use Taliban as a means for achieving this heinous and inhumane aim.
President Ghani pointing to the issue says,” the destruction of the infrastructure of our country is now the main aim of Taliban and their regional patrons and imposed a war on us.”
Since four decades, Afghanistan is facing a foreign invasion and there is no any alternative but to defend. Although, the sacred defense of the country has cost to the lives of millions Afghans and destruction of the country but fortunately so far our domestic and foreign enemies have not succeeded to become the ruler to the destiny of our people.
Regarding to issue Afghan president says, “As our yesterday’s jihad was right and legal, today also the campaign of our security forces against terrorist is legal and right.”
If we look to the past, our people earlier fought against foreign invasion for fourteen years, and currently also fighting against foreign invasions. Earlier the invaders came to our country to build so-called socialism but today the same invasion takes place in pretext of establishing Islamic Caliphate or emirates. The real organizers of anti – Afghans wars and conspiracies are the foreign intelligence services and use terrorist and extremist groups as a means for achieving their evil goals in the region and in the world as a whole.
Therefore, it would be better for armed oppositions to understand the sensitive situation of the country, if they are Afghan should respect the will of their people and if they are foreign invaders, they should learn from the past that the big powers  in various times have never succeeded to overcome the will of Afghan brave people and defeat them.

Kabul (BNA)   Afghan people and government ask the donor countries and international community to carry out in practice their commitments and moral obligations regarding to Afghanistan and by putting further pressure on terrorist groups and their supporting countries reduce the problems of Afghan people.
BNA political analyst commenting on the issue writes the recent tragic incident in Balkh province where a number of our compatriots lost their lives in terrorist attack faced serious national and international reactions.
In the national level, this inhumane   crime further increased the hatred of our people to Taliban and even certain politicians who showed great sympathy to Taliban acknowledging to their mistake called the group nothing but a terrorist group. In the international level, from America to Australia and from Russia to Arabic countries and India, even Pakistan the major supporter of terrorism and extremism criticizing that barbaric attack condemned it.  Among the countries, Chinese foreign ministry expressing concern over the complicated situation of Afghanistan insisted on continuation of peace process under the leadership of Afghans.
The sympathy and coordination of foreign countries to our people regarding to the recent and previous terrorist incidents clearly demonstrate that finally terrorists are isolated and condemned in international level.
Although the Afghan people express gratitude for the sympathy and coordination of foreign countries made regarding the recent terrorist attack on Balkh army, but believe, just condemning terrorist groups would not be sufficient and cannot solve the problem.
What today, the Afghan people are experiencing in the name of terrorism and extremism in reality these notorious phenomenon in address and name of IS and Taliban are deeply rooted outside our country and imposed on our country. It is an open fact that our neighboring countries have used and use so called Taliban and IS as a means for achieving their illegal and ambitious objectives in the region, in this way Afghanistan is the victim of exported terrorism and extremism.
Considering the situation, the Afghan people expect the international community especially the countries that have formed their relations with Afghanistan based on strategic agreements, instead of just condemning terrorist attacks honestly work and cooperate toward removing the external factors of Afghan problem.  Friendly countries who really want to end terrorism and extremism that not only threat the region but the entire world should   further equip and support Afghan security forces and  help Islamic Republic of Afghanistan  in restoring stability in the country.
Ensuring security and strengthening the pillars of Afghan central government, in long term will fulfill   the interests of many countries of the world because instability and insecurity in Afghanistan lead to the growth and expansion of terrorist activities to other countries of the region and world.
Afghans wish the world to deal Afghanistan with a logical view.

Kabul (BNA)  April 23rd in honor of the victims of recent terrorist attack on congregational mosque of Shaheen Army was a national mourning day across the country.
BNA political analyst commenting on the issue writes the congregational mosque of Shaheen army corp. recently was the target of a terrorist attack, Taliban claimed its responsibility. In the attack, a number of our brave officers and soldiers while citing the Friday Prayer lost their lives or injured.
The president of the country honoring the blood of the martyrs announced the day as a national mourning day and in this way honored the pure blood of the martyrs and in the meantime, we express our commitment for realizing the cause that the martyrs lost their lives for it.
If we look at the bitter realities that the Afghan people have experienced during the last four decades, it becomes obvious that every day of this patient nation has been accompanied with blood and mourning.  The problem is that this great nation wants to be the owner of their destiny and do not want the will of foreign countries imposed on them. Certain countries of the region every day by exercising a conspiracy or evil intention try to impose themselves on our people and country. The heroic and patriotic people who firmly stood against these conspiracies, defended the national and religious values, and martyred. The martyrs have left a sacred heritage that should honored and protected.
The great aspirations of the martyrs who lost their lives and finally the ordeals that the people of this country sustain every day put a hard task and responsibility on the authorities of state, leadership, people’s representatives, military staffs and commanders.
Protecting and honoring the blood of martyrs and valuing their high objectives is a moral obligation should be deeply understand and perform honestly our responsibility regarding to that sacred task.
Currently the country is exercising the most difficult problems. Although parts of the problems caused by foreigners but in parts of them certain domestic circles are involved.
Today the people are talking about differences of views among the leadership of the country, lack of tolerance, corruption, and lawlessness in the county that are in contradiction of the martyrs’ aspirations. The critical situation of the country and the hostile views of certain countries on our beloved homeland seriously ask us to put aside all political differences, organize for defending national and religious values, and do our best to overcome the problems and to access to a true national unity in practice, the source of real power. If we achieve the noble objective this is national unity, then we can give a proper response to the foreigners and their mercenaries who are seeking to destroy our homeland. Just by building a strong national unity, we can defeat our enemies, restore peace and stability in to the county, and build a prosperous community.

Kabul (BNA)   Any foreign countries or domestic political circles, who consider Taliban a political movement, persecute to the blood of thousands of martyrs of this country who have lost their lives in defense of national values and barbaric attacks of ignorant Taliban.
BNA political analyst commenting on the issue writes that recently a number of diplomats in Kabul and outside Afghanistan and some political figures of our country calling Taliban a political movement and fact expressed their cooperation and coordination with this mediaeval group.
Such interpretations from Taliban indicate that passing each day the number of countries and political circles increase who are seeking to use Taliban as a means to determine their place in the great games of the region and intelligence projects.
Considering grave military tensions and rivalry among the big powers of the region and the world, using Taliban as a means for achieving their objectives, have increased the ever before and try their best to use them as a means to achieve their evil goals. Discord between Taliban and the killing of their two leaders Mullah Mohammad Omer and Mullah Akhtar Mansoor originated from the games and rivalries of the big powers.
Although the heinous and violent deeds committed Taliban so far are against all humane values and culture, unfortunately, some people introduce this tyrannical group as a political movement, and certain circles inside the country consider them as a fact in the political situation of the country.
This kind of view and perception would be hazardous for Afghan people.
The constitution of Afghanistan which is the national identity of the country and according to which the system of the government established. Some current political figures who had played a great role in preparing the document and defined political activities, freedom of speech and civic activities, not only cooperated in implementing the articles of the constitution but demonstrated great patient toward the activities of dozens of political partied within the framework of the constitution, and media. This is a clear example of tolerability of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan toward political parties and media that severely criticize its activities and mistakes.
While Taliban attack hospitals, put fire on schools, kill state employees, teachers and students, carry out suicide attacks on crowded places of the city, and kill our innocent people including our military officers who defend the honor of our beloved homeland and plunder public properties. Taliban ignoring Afghan constitution daily commit dozen unacceptable crimes in the country. How one can call and introduces them as a political movement while they commit such heinous crimes against all international laws and human rights.
Afghan people ask the countries that have recognized our government and have diplomatic relations with us to regulate their relations according to international laws and avoid supporting terrorist groups who are not only a threat to Afghanistan, to  the region but to entire world.
Islamic Republic of Afghanistan in fight against terrorist group such as Taliban and IS requires international support to end terrorism and rescue the world from the evil of it. Because, thinking to damage and topple Afghan government will have no any use but increase the problems.

Kabul (BNA) Unity government since its establishment until now is seeking to improve the situation and meet the public’s demands and for achieving this noble goal has spared no any efforts.
BNA political analyst commenting on the issue writes the Afghan community and people are suffering many problems. If we assess the current situation fairly and impartially, the present government has obtained much of the problems as a heritage from the previous regime that has not performed its obligations and duties, as it required.
Counter terrorism struggle, determining the stance of Afghanistan in level of the region, preventing adventurous and evil circles from carrying out satanic activities in Afghanistan and in the region, restoring security and stability in to the country, ensuring relations with neighbors, and providing a proper ground for boosting economy and commerce and finally ensuring social welfare are the basic elements for building a system.
Building a democratic system of government requires knowledge, political skills, and reasonable dealing with issues. Without doubt, the Afghan authorities with such a view are trying to settle the current problems and improve the situation in the country. They believe for overcoming the challenges, a basic and practical strategy required to be build and based on that overcome the problems.
Considering this fact, the National Unity Government since its establishment has tried to build a concrete base and strategy and according to which deal with political, economic and military affairs and ensures its international relations.
The horrible situation of today is a legacy of the past. The criticisms that addressing the National Unity Government, such as Afghanistan during the last two or three year facing and suffering a difficult situation, the economy is not in proper situation or the existence of foreign forces in the country and the way of dealing with them are issues that the  critics expects to be settle properly. We ask them in order to fitful the expectations; cordially ask them to refer to facts and realities of the region. It is a clear fact that terrorism and extremism exist in the region and certain countries using those notorious phenomenon great problems for Afghans and some other countries.
For this reason, the world community justifies the presence of foreign forces in Afghanistan.
The National Unity Government is fighting against many serious problems, to overcome the problems and challenges in national level, there would be an urgent need, for establishing a true and strong national unity the source of invincible power. If we obtain such a power this is national unity then as the historical documents show, we can achieve our lofty goals and neither our domestic foes nor our foreign enemies can resist us.
Therefore, it is the obligation and duty every patriotic Afghan toward building a true national unity in order to overcome the current problems and challenges, because as the past experiences show, just criticism cannot settle the problems and defeat terrorism.
