The signing of these documents, that with two great countries with big economic and political capacities indicates that Afghanistan despite the positive and negative anticipations is in the focus of global attention after the 2014 as well. 
After the program for withdrawal of the international forces from Afghanistan till 2014 was taken up, it was thought that after completion of withdrawal of the international forces from Afghanistan this country will return to the dark decades and once again the Taliban and its supporters will turn Afghanistan into maneuvering field. 
Thought it is not specific yet that the year 2014 will be the end of foreign troop’s presence in Afghanistan or not, it was thought by some sources that Afghanistan will turn to its past decades and there will be no word of democracy. 
President Hamid Karzai considering these anticipations and concerns after signing of the long term strategic cooperation treaties with Italy and France in respect to assistance of these countries in political, economic, cultural and equipping and training of Afghan forces said that Afghanistan has its order and I am fully confident that Afghanistan will never reverse to its past. 
These assertions indicate that the order of Afghanistan is decisively trying its best to seek the ways and means for elimination of crisis in Afghanistan so that the achievements of the past ten years of the people of Afghanistan and the international community are not wasted. 
Any way the popular order of Afghanistan is endeavoring hard so that in cooperation with the international community after 2014 be in focus and eliminate the crisis in the region as the politicians of the country persistently reiterated that creation of crisis in this region is not to the benefit of any country and the world. 
It is therefore necessary that the regional countries and other think new and prevent confrontations and this way turn this region into an example of cooperation for these countries and the international community at large.
