Kabul (BNA) Since long times Afghanistan and Pakistan have very close cultural, social, economic and security relations. Due to wars and conflicts, the Afghans were forced to leave their homeland and migrate to other countries particularly Pakistan and the later had been hosting the Afghan refugees for long years. People of both countries have similar culture and traditions.
Pakistan has always been endeavoring to follow a double standard policy with Afghanistan while these two regional Islamic countries have inseparable relations with each other from every point of view. The tribes and ethnic people who are living on both sides of Durand Line, are inseparable from each other. But recently the Afghan refugees who have spent difficult days and nights are strongly harassed by Pakistan officials said police they are not behind based on migration principles and laws despite of existence. Particular migration laws at global level. But unfortunately this country, Pakistan threat our countrymen time and again by different pretexts. At a glance at the region and world situation we find that our country is the cradle of big empires, conquerors and ghazis and has a long and special history. Afghanistan has a history of over 5000 years but now the time has reached that these two regional countries should setup very close relations but unfortunately Pakistan has always tried to disturb Afghans and bombards our holy territory with rockets and artillery and martyr our innocent people.
Our eastern provinces have recently witnesses’ bombardment and casualties due to provocations’ of Pakistan. The Afghan people have now been fed up with wars and conflicts and don’t want these chaotic situation to continue. Regional experts believe that current wars is the war of aliens that has been inflicted on Afghans as a result of which thousands innocent Afghans have been martyred, lost their homes and became orphans, handicapped. Afghanistan is a peace loving country with an Islamic system and law and wishes security of the global. Afghanistan is the heart of Asia and is the crossroad of central Asian countries and can be a good center of trade and transit. We have recently witnessed threats and sanctions on borders and the government and people expect that these problems be concluded quickly and enable people of both courtiers to move in a free atmosphere.

Kabul (BNA) Multiply games of Pakistani Intelligence Services in Afghanistan passing each day disclosed even the diplomats and government officials of that country talking on the issue confirm the fact.
BNA reporter reporting the issue writes during the last 14 years, Pakistan has been behind all terrorist incidents occurring in Afghanistan. The Red Army’s invasion in Afghanistan provided an excellent opportunity for Pakistan to widely interferences to exercise its long lasting animosity against our country. The recorded documents clearly indicate that Pakistan in its political history since its establishment never had good relation with Afghanistan. The Afghan and Indian peoples consider Pakistan as an artificial country established by colonialists from the territories belonged to the two countries. Pakistan in order to survive as a country in a political arena has resorted to the most shameful tactics unprecedented in world history.
Considering the low and ominous activities of Pakistan, the countries following ambitious goals in Afghanistan in its neighboring countries, use Pakistani politicians and militarists as a means for their achieving colonialist goals and objectives. Pakistan, in exchange of its shameful deeds has opened a place for itself in political games, considering the regional and international developments misusing the rivalries of world’s super powers, proceeded a series of provocations against Afghanistan. Pakistan somewhat succeeded in his policy, the movements and parties who fought against the then Soviet Union and support by the west brought its control and after the Soviets withdrawal, established and encouraged terrorists groups such as Taliban, IS and other terrorist groups. Recruiting, funding and equipping these terrorist and extremist networks launched a proxy war in Afghanistan to achieve its evil objectives in the region.
The Afghan authorities during the last 15 years have repeatedly complained about great influence of Pakistan on Taliban and other terrorist groups and involvement of that country in terrorist fatal and destructive incidents, which have claimed the lives of many people and caused heavy losses. Fortunately, recently the international communities including US and other western countries have ratified the involvement of Pakistan in terrorist incidents in Afghanistan. Currently, American relevant authorities working on drafting a law that will not consider Pakistan as a strategic ally of that country any more. At the same time, the death of the ambassador and some other diplomats of United Arabic Emirates because of a terrorist attack on guesthouse of Kandahar governor have raised the suspicion of golf countries against Pakistan.
Now, the time has reached, even Pakistani diplomats confess the involvement of Pakistan in terrorist activities, as Husain Haqani an outstanding diplomat who have served earlier as ambassador of that country in Washington releasing an essay in Washington Post has explicitly said “supporting and dealing of Pakistan government has not changed, continues as before.” These undeniable facts confirm the involvement of Pakistan in terrorist incidents. Therefore, the countries and the international community really want to end terrorism and extremism and rid humanity from the evil of this notorious phenomenon, increase pressure on Pakistan the key supporter of terrorism and extremism to desist supporting, training, and equipping terrorist networks in order this evil phenomenon not threaten the humanity anymore.

National unity government has no way except agreement and cooperation to end power division disputes and address increasing challenges in security, economic, political and social sectors and it will be a key step towards maintaining national interests and addressing numerous governance challenges if the political agreement is exercised.
The environment created after recent terrorist attacks, appointments and key agreements towards distribution of electronic ID cards and holding parliamentary elections should be kept as a work impetus by officials of national unity government and further facility should be paved for further cooperation and agreement which will be followed by further achievements in maintaining security, reform in judicial, military and civil sectors and increasing safety of Afghan citizens.
