Kabul (BNA) Recently the president held an advisory meeting with political and jihadi leaders on political developments in the country, preparations for holding parliamentary and districts’ councils and supporting security and defense forces.
BNA political analyst commenting on the issue writes the sensitive situation of the country requires urgent putting in end all difference, consciously reasoning and thinking. In this critical situation all people’s strata including politicians, cultural peoples, and civil society activists should know their obligations and responsibilities and act accordingly. What the president held under the title of advisory meeting with political and Jihadi leaders was an admirable and important move on discussing current issues of the county. This indicates that the leadership of the country does not believe monopolization but wants to have the opinions of educated, elites and people in general on critical issues that determine the destiny of people and link to national interests. Holding parliamentary and districts councils elections discuss in an advisory meeting, whereas, the selection committee recently presented the list of candidates for membership of the two elections commissions to the president that can be a firm step toward reforming the system of elections. But unfortunately, the appointments of the commissioners for the two election commissions have taken place without asking the opinions of elders, political elites, and people in general.
Although, the president continuous the series of advisory meetings for improving administrative affairs of the country, but it requires, the advisors who attend the meetings should ignoring their own interests, only focus on national interests. In addition, it would be necessary; the authorities of the country do their best for realizing and implementing in practice the useful and constructive consultations. The current situation of the country asks all committed residents and citizens of the country including, the leadership, members of the cabinet, parliament, state employees and military staff to work according a practical plan and program, because the people want a constructive and fruitful work. Ensuring peace and tranquility are an old dream of our people and this only realized when all the residents of the country ignoring all kinds of discriminations including linguistic, ethnical, religious discriminations and political differences just think about Afghanistan. In such way of thinking, we certainly overcome all challenges and problems and ensure peace and stability in the country. Finally, it would of great importance, to carry out any national program and move according consensus because, without unity would not succeed and achieve our objectives.

Kabul (BNA) Islamic Republic of Afghanistan is committed to fight against corruption and believes in bringing reforms, continuation of fighting and terror activities cannot a pretext and barrier on the way of realization of these objectives. The government of Afghanistan on the eve of Brussels Conference conducting meetings with 50 countries and international organization have assessed the implementation of the commitments of Afghan government regarding to bringing reforms, counter – corruption campaign and good governance.
BNA political analyst commenting on the issue writes an international session on continuing international aids to Afghanistan will be hold in Brussels the capital of Belgium very soon. The conference has planed while earlier the international community in regional and international sessions on Afghanistan in Warsaw, London, Brussels, Kabul and other places have depended their aids to Afghanistan to bringing reforms, counter corruption campaign and good governance as pre- requisite to continuation of their aids.
Afghanistan as a war – torn country seriously needs the assistances of international community, therefore, for achieving the aids, has made certain commitments to meet the pre – requisite imposes by international community. At Brussels conference, the donors will assess the implementation of the commitments of Afghan government in practice and the level of its achievements in that regard.
For this reason, Kabul was the scene of a session under the title of the Session of Joint Board for Monitoring and Organizing Brussels Conference with participation of Afghan representatives and 50 countries and international organizations where the participants expressed and shared their views regarding to implementation of Afghan government’s commitments in practice and holding Brussels session.
The world community insists on practical and effective campaign of Afghan government against corruption, establishing good governance and bringing reforms, Eklil Hakimi the Afghan finance minister claims that his country implementing its commitments has obtained the satisfaction of international community. But, the statements delivered by European Union envoy and UN special envoy to Afghanistan say something contrary to that. They considering the achievements of Afghanistan in fighting corruption insufficient, insist on further efforts in that regard. It is a fact that insecurity, corruption, poor governance are the most crucial problems that Afghan community suffering a lot. What the international community addressing Afghanistan has said is a bitter fact that cannot ignored. It is important to present a satisfactory response and adopt effective measures for removing the problems. As president, Ghani says in that regard, terrorism should not be a pretext and barrier on the way of reforming. He pointed out that stability, reforming and the rule of law are essential for us and bringing reform on judicial and justice sectors is among the priorities of Afghan government. This indicates that Islamic Republic of Afghanistan is very serious in fighting against corruption and injustice and strongly committed to bringing reforms. Therefore, Brussels Conference should not be the scene of hosting some delegations but should be scene of practical political and economic commitments for supporting Afghan people who have sustained grave problems imposed on them abroad.
The economic development of Afghanistan without doubt depends on international cooperation and the commitments of its people for ensuring security, political stability and conscientiously straggles against corruption, the issues that the Afghans and international community should act accordingly.

Kabul (BNA) Afghan people expect the leadership of the country especially the diplomatic organs to raise the current problems with Pakistan and find the way of their solutions in order to prevent the supremacy and further influence of that country in Afghanistan.
BNA political analyst commenting on the issue writes Torkham border area was the scene of armed clashes between Afghan and Pakistani forces last week, which caused casualties, and destruction for both sides.
Meanwhile, the incident badly affected transportation and trading between the two countries that caused heavy losses to merchants of both countries. However, what is important to focus on is the interest of the both countries for settling the Torkham problem and problems alike via diplomacy, which can be effective for improving cooperation between the two countries.
The way of ensuring contacts and establishing relation for settling the problems and improving relation is the obligation of diplomatic organ and the diplomats of the country but what causes the major concern of our people is the current tense relation with Pakistan.
Building military installations by Pakistan in Torkham is not the only problem that exists in relation between the two countries, Pakistanis interventions, aggressions and other violations of that country are going much beyond the Torkham’s incident.
The ambitious and unpractical objectives of Pakistani militarists go beyond the aim they wanted to achieve in Torkham. If they in disguise of Taliban conducting war in Wardouj district, Badakhshan province or they kill our innocent people in Helmand, destroying the infrastructure of homeland, plundering our mines, and establishing barrier on the way of our progress and prosperity, in reality are Pakistani troops conducting a proxy war against Afghanistan. If it is not so, General Parwiz Musharaf the then Pakistan president never called Taliban and Al – Qaeda the champions of Pakistan. The purpose of the above statement is that Pakistan is following much greater programs than raised in Torkham incident. Pakistan consider herself in the same rank with the countries helped Afghans in their Jihad and fighting against the then Soviet Union, such incentives and ideas have made Pakistan to think about designing strategic programs and asking for more privileges.
The Afghan delegation that goes to Pakistan will raise the newly created Torkham problem with Pakistani authorities, but, the Afghan people want the negotiations be constructive and transparent. The talks should not focus on only a specific issue, but, be the beginning for settling all problems that badly affect the relation between the two countries. If Pakistan talks about border problem, Taliban, Daesh and Al – Qaeda are major sources that create horrible problems for Afghanistan, have their sanctuaries and stronghold in Pakistan. Holding talks with terrorist groups who used by foreign intelligence, as a means of pressure against Afghanistan would be in vain. Therefore, it would be better, the diplomatic organs of the country conduct negotiations with Pakistan under supervision of credible international organizations in order the realities about illegal foreign policies regarding to Afghanistan become clear than ever before.

Kabul (BNA) NATO has declared that it would continue its mission which is training and strengthening Afghan security forces.
BNS analyst commenting on the issue writes recently NATO member countries defense ministers committing their support from Afghan security forces concluded their session at Brussels the headquarters of that organization. Meanwhile they have said that they would maintain their forces in Kabul and other cities of Afghanistan. The NATO general secretary has said that they would continue to consult and support Afghan security forces, because, they need our support. The session of NATO member countries defense ministers has held on the eve of the summit of the countries due to be hold in Warsaw the capital of Poland next month. At the summit, Afghanistan and the cooperation of NATO to that country will be at focus of discussion. The participants of the summit will renew their commitment regarding to financially, logistically and weaponry supporting Afghan security forces. What have discussed at the session of NATO defense ministers and agreed upon is good news for Afghan people who fight against terrorism that threatens the whole world. Therefore, it would be the moral obligation of international community to support Afghan forces in this horrible struggle against terrorism.
What the defense ministers of NATO member countries agreed at their last session and what will discuss at Warsaw conference will affect the security, political and economic situation of Afghanistan, but it is a clear fact that such aids, mainly depend on condition of the country. Certain circles in western countries repeatedly claimed that Afghanistan is a burden on shoulders of international community, but the Afghans rejecting that say, they have never wanted to be a burden on shoulders of international community, but, the problem is that the current problem in Afghanistan has foreign factors. Our country is the prey of great games and ambitious objectives of foreign countries that use terrorist and extremist groups as a means for achieving those evil and hideous goals. Therefore, for settling the problem there is an urgent need for an international gathering and solidarity among all nations. The Afghan people expect NATO and other countries that helped Afghanistan in war against terrorism for long years to pay their intention for settling the problem forever. Because, funding and equipping Afghan forces are not responsive to the current situation of the country. Capacity building made so far is not enough and the process of equipping air force is slow. Afghans expect the donor countries and NATO that are committed to support Afghanistan to support and equip Afghan security forces with up to date weapons to fight successfully against terrorism and eradicate that ominous phenomenon forever and rescue the humanity from the peril of it.

Kabul (BNA) The recent provocations of Pakistani militarists along the so called
Durand Line in Torkham area is a clear violation of international standards and criteria, therefore, there is a need for international credible organizations to intervene and prevent the escalation of further tension.
BNA political analyst commenting on the issue writes the situation along Durand Line due to illegal and provocative military activities of Pakistani militarists is tense. The Pakistani army with unjustifiable programs and using weapons has caused armed clashes, is responsible for killing of people on both sides of Durand Line.
The problem emerged, after Pakistani militia without informing border military in charges started military constructions, which sparked the reaction of the Afghan forces, our people expected.
In exchange, of fire from both sides of Durand Line that caused casualties and destruction on both sides, the Pakistani side without double will bear the consequences of that.
What had happened during the recent days is a regrettable and shameful incident. A violation that is not new, the Afghans have been witnessing such tyrannical violating for long years along imaginary Durand Line. Earlier, often Pakistani army have also committed such ferocious violations in Paktika, Kunar, Nangarhar, paktia, Zabul, Helmand … .
The problem is not only the construction of Pakistani military bases on Torkham, but it goes much beyond. Pakistani militarists in pretext of counter terror fighting, management of the borders, preventing illegally crossing the borders is thinking about its hegemony and prominence over Durand Line. If Pakistan is honest on fighting against terrorism, the leaders of all terrorist groups including Taliban, Haqani’s notorious network, Daesh and other terrorist groups such as Al- Qaeda are living in Pakistan. If the sanctuaries of these evil groups were destroyed in Pakistan territory, there would be no any problem in fighting against terrorism, there would be no illegal crossing the border and there would be no place for Pakistani pretexts, mostly resort.
As it mentioned above, the construction of military base, is not the only problem, Pakistan for achieving its regional illegal objectives uses Taliban and other terrorist groups in proxy war again Afghanistan. The recent provocations in Torkham are a part of violations Pakistan has committed for achieving that hegemonic goal.
Now, it is the time, the Afghan leadership based on commitments for their people raise the inhuman deed of Pakistan in credible international organizations such as UN, Conference of Islamic Countries and other regional associations and launching an extensive diplomatic campaign further isolate Pakistan among the countries of the world.

Kabul (BNA) While Afghanistan is suffering more security challenges during the current year than the previous years, the special UN envoy says the terrorists from other countries are interring Afghanistan.
BNA commentator writes regarding to issue, recently the UN special envoy for Afghanistan visited Faryab province where has seen the terrorists attacks, very armed oppositions attacks and the presence of malty nationalities groups. The visiting of this UN senior official may be a fact-finding mission from the realities in Afghanistan.
The UN special envoy for Afghanistan while visiting Faryab province made it clear that terrorists from other countries are interring Afghanistan. He openly declares a fact that the international community pays little attention on it, while hundredds of foreign terrorists beside armed Taliban are fighting against Afghan security forces and they are the main factor for instability in our country.
The UN special envoy statement came in a time, during the last month huge number foreign terrorists who were fighting side by side of armed Taliban against Afghan security forces have killed because of air attacks launched by Afghan forces. Also, local leaders of Daesh such as Hafiz Sayed , Shahidullah Shahid , Gulzaman, Jehad yar were all Pakistani nationals who were carrying terrorist activities in Afghanistan.
Previously, the security authorities and local security officials from some provinces repeatedly have reported about the warned about the presence of foreign terrorists in several provinces of our country, unfortunately, the international community and particularly the countries that have commitments regarding to ensuring security in Afghanistan ignored these warnings.
Despite of these facts the international community did not focus on sources that are funding, training, equips the terrorists outside the Afghan borders, and send them for bloodshed and destructions in to Afghanistan.
What recently the special envoy of UN has said is another document about the realities in Afghanistan should be presented in UN Security Council and attracts the attention of the council in to Afghan problems originated from foreign intervention in order to find a solution for this fatal problem.

Kabul (BNA) Afghanistan is among vulnerable countries of natural disasters, lack of preventive measures and shortage of physical materials and facilities have caused our compatriots to lose their lives in natural disasters every year.
BNA analyst commenting on the issue writes, recently a conference on the occasion of international day on reduction of natural disasters was held to talk about natural disasters and to adopt effective measures in order to reduce the casualties and damages caused by natural disasters. The natural horrible disasters in 1392 proved that how vulnerable is Afghanistan from natural disasters. Natural disasters such as landslide in Barikab-Argo district of Badakhshan province, horrible floods in Jozjan, Sar-e-Pul, Faryab, Badghis, Logar, Kunar and Nangarhar provinces caused heavy casualties and financial damages. Also seasonal snowing and heavy raining which cause the vising water of the rivers which leads to the destructive of roads and agricultural fields, all these indicate that our country is faced to a serious and fatal menace of natural disasters, while there is no proper preventive measure against the threat. According to the relevant authorities only in 1392 as a result of natural disasters 727 lost their lives, 104 people injured and 12720 houses and over 43333 across of agricultural lands damaged.
The above figures show that alongside terrorist activities the wrath of nature also claims the lives of our poor people and cause heavy destructions. Although, prevention of natural disaster is in possible in this situations, but can reduce the casualties and destructions to its lowest by adopting effective and practicable measures. So, the relevant organs and authorities using their previous experiences should take effective measures for reduction of the fatal consequences of natural disasters and to provide family essential materials and shelters for the victims of unpredicted disasters, before the occurrence of a disaster.

Kabul (BNA) The fourth regional session under the main of (the consequence of Istanbul for Afghanistan) held recently in Beijing the capital of China contain a clear message, that the international community strongly supports Afghanistan.
BNA analyst commenting on the issue writes; this the fourth session of Istanbul process or the countries of heart of Asia that tried hard to seek the correct way of Afghan crisis solution and the countries of the region with complete unity and coordination act for remove of Afghan people problems. Since the Afghan problem, blatantly caused by foreign intervention its solution is only possible through regional cooperation.
The Chinese Prime Minister addressing the conference said, restoring peace and stability to Afghanistan is not only the need of Afghans, but it is a urgent requirement of the region. He stressed that the regional cooperation with peace process in Afghanistan creates a hope for ensuring peace in that region that guarantees the economic growth in the region. Chinese Prime Minister pointed out that, this conference has a clear message that the countries of the region and international community strongly support the new Afghan unity government and the participants of the session once again announced their long-term commitment to ensuring peace and reconstruction of Afghanistan.
Regional cooperation and coordination is a priority of Istanbul Republic of Afghanistan, but this human goal can only achieve through honest action and commitments of the countries of the region, because, the insecurity and instability that Afghan people suffering now, is like a contagion disease that infects the region and entire world. Understanding the grave consequences of terrorism and extremism, fighting these two evil phenomenon and restoring peace and stability in the country is one the priorities of the Afghan new government and seriously asks the countries of the region to cooperate in restoring peace and stability in Afghanistan that is to be benefit of all countries of region.
Mohammad Ashraf Ghani the president of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan is the recent session of Istanbul process delivering a speech once again asked the armed oppositions to join the inter Afghan negotiations and urged the international community to support the peace process under the leadership of Afghans. This request indicates that the process should be free of foreign intervention and the foreign countries respect inter-Afghan negotiation as an Afghan process and support it. Afghans see peace and stability as an urgent need for prosperity of the region while, some other countries for achieving their ambitions goals and enforcing their supremacy in the region act contrary to that. It should be said that, they have chosen the wrong path, that leads them not to Mecca, but, in to the hell. Therefore, they should leave that wrong path and stop supporting terrorism and extremism, because that the countries of the region to situation with fatal consequences. Thus, it would be advisable for them to desist their destructive policies and join Afghans for ensuring peace and stability in the region that would be to the benefit of all residents of the region and the world as a whole.

Kabul (BNA) September 27th was the day the notorious and barbaric Taliban over run Kabul the capital of the country and imposed their tyrannical rule on our people, for five years, which makes the darkest part of our history.
BNA political analyst remembering those harsh days writes, the Taliban group was established, organized, trained and equipped in a blatant political intrigue by the enemies of our country to fulfill their ambitious goals in the region. This mercenary group partially succeeded to meet the objectives of their bosses by toppling the then Afghan government and establishing the so-called Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan.
The time tested foreign enemy of Afghanistan misusing the situation of our country where factional disputes were underway in the country and the people were suffering the situation, created the notorious and barbaric group of Taliban to realize their long dreams this is supremacy of the region.
As I mentioned earlier, the foreign enemies of Afghanistan in order to achieve their ambitious goals in the region, recruited, organized, trained and equipped this ignorant and inhumane group and sent in to our country to launch a proxy war in Afghanistan. The partially succeeded in achieving their objectives, because their mercenaries toppled the then Afghan government and created so called Islamic Emirate indirectly run by Pakistani generals and ISI authorities . The new leadership who for the first time introduced terrorism and extremism in the region, later used those two inhumane phenomenon in a way that not only the region but also the entire world.
The Afghan people who knew the satanic nature of the group resisted and bravely fought against them. This ignorant group closed the doors of schools particularly for girls and practiced such cruelties in the community that the history not remembers.
As state above the resistance of Afghan people continued against a notorious group who grave cruelty ruled and international community knew about the challenges imposed by extremism, and terrorism supported the resistance forces to collapse the so called Islamic Emirate and to rid the humanity from the threat of terrorism and extremism.
Unfortunately, once again the foreign enemies of Afghanistan on the other side of Durand Line reorganized the group and still conducting a proxy war against the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan and its people.
We believe terrorism and extremism not only threaten Afghanistan, the world but in the end their host country. Therefore, it is the responsibility of international community including Pakistan to join hand and do their best to eliminate extremism and terrorism forever.

Kabul (BNA) The existing problems are very complicated and they are emanated from outside the country, therefore, in order to overcome and settling them, require a transparent and constructive cooperation of International community. Now it depends to the world community how they carry out their ethical obligation in that end.
BNA political analyst commenting on the issue writes; the program of withdrawal of international forces from Afghanistan at the end of 2014 does not meet the objectives determined for counter-terrorism campaign and elimination of this evil forces. Although, a timetable has been set for the withdrawal of foreign forces, but still those forces have not achieved their goals and objective, in campaign against terrorism which was the elimination of terrorism in Afghanistan, the region and the entire world. In spite of that the Afghan government and people with complete awareness and strong will have for determining the further of their country honestly cooperated the international community in fight against threats of terrorism and partially provide the ground to withdrawal of foreign forces from Afghanistan.
According to the situation the NATO heads in their session in Chicago, four years ago agreed on withdrawal of their combat forces from Afghanistan and committed to equip and train Afghan troop to cope with threats still terrorist imposed not only in the region, but the entire world. Meanwhile, they committed to pay 4,100 billion dollars for funding and equipping Afghan security forces. It should be mentioned that the amount is not a part of commitments to pay and to be spend in social, economic, education and cultural sectors of our country, unfortunately, those commitments, our people looking with great hope remained on the paper or were to slow that could not met the needs of the time and current situation, while, terrorism and extremism still exist as potential threat in the region and across the world, which is a disastrous danger not only for Afghan, but equally for the international community as well.
Political experts believe, the policies which are currently implementing in fight against terrorism will not hit the target, but further encourage the terrorists and their supporters to continue their criminal activities and bloodshed in the region particularly in Afghanistan. Afghan people the real victims of terrorism and extremism ask the international forces if they are honest in fighting terrorism should target terrorists in their hideouts and sanctuaries, located on the other side of Durand Line and put pressure on terrorism supporters especially ISI to stop recruiting, training and funding terrorists and sending them to carry out terrorist attacks which cause heavy casualties and destruction to innocent civilians. Also, the Afghan people suggest, if the international community meet their commitments already made for funding, training and equipping Afghan troops. This will also lead to defeat of terrorism at least in the region. We believe the Afghan are the Hercules of the time that can bring the dragon of the time, this is terrorism in to its knees. Therefore, if the international forces are honest in fight against terrorism and completed elimination of this evil forces, that threats not only the Afghan, but the people of the region and the entire world should choose one of the options mentioned above, this is fighting terrorism in their sanctuaries and training centers on the other side of Durand Line or as they committed to fight terrorism to the end.
