Peace is a need. Working for ensuring peace in reality is the obligation of every patriotic Afghan and respecting the will of our long-suffering people. Any deviation from the process will have grave consequences that should be avoid.
The people who want peace or joined the process earlier, observing the constitution of the country and the achievements of the last 15 years should be among their basic commitments.
If we take a glance at the last 15 years developments, ratification of the constitution, establishment of nation army, media, freedom of speech and wide
Separation education systems, the growth of civil activities, extension of relations with other countries saved the country from economic collapse are among tangible achievements of the last 15 years nobody should ignore.
The people who had already joined peace process or join latter should whole-heartedly know that the achievements are a part of realities that determine the destiny of Afghan people should not wrongly and selfishly criticized because the people consider them as a big achievement and not ready to deal on it. The politicians who want carry out legal activities should respond the people’s expectations. The people expect fill the present gaps, strengthening of the state and the pillars of the central government.
Rescuing from the present critical situation that caused from foreign interferences requires true cooperation with the state in ensuring stability and bringing other armed groups to the peace process. Disarming irresponsible armed groups who have armed activities background in the country, boosting economic activities, supporting big economic projects, encouraging former militants to civil life and finally changing the structure of the parties that had earlier military activities in to political parties are the priorities should be consider.
The sensitive situation of the country asks all patriotic Afghans to build a true national unity, the force that by using it we can overcome all problems and establish a prosperous community. Try it.
