Kabul (BNA) After increasing reports about ensuring relations of a number of Afghan neighbors with Taliban, Afghan people expressing concern that their neighboring countries from the fear of Taliban will change to another Pakistan against their country.
BNA reporter regarding to the reports writes as follow publicizing of Russia’s relations with Taliban, holding tripartite session in Moscow, ensuring relation between Taliban and Iran and recently leaked to media that the military equipment of Taliban were repairing in Tajikistan by Russian engineers are irrefutable facts that prove the flagrant interventions of those in domestic affairs of Afghanistan. As the current and the former authorities of Kunduz province strongly insisted that re-fall of Kunduz to the hand of Taliban was the direct military support of Russia and the result of cooperation of those countries with this terrorist group. Although the state and the security organs have not commented about the claims of local authorities of Kunduz, but the spokesperson of Tajikistan’s border forces has called the claims baseless. However, the Afghan people who sustain the horrible problems of war and terrorist attacks believe that the Taliban have been using as a means by those country for achieving their evil goals in the region.
Pakistan that applies Taliban for its regional purposes now introducing the group to other countries among them Russia and Iran is seeking to pretend that not only that country, but the countries of the region also support Taliban. The residents of Heart, Farah and Nimroz have repeatedly complained that Iran has used Taliban to prevent the building of some constructional projects among them several Water dams for generating electricity in the above mentioned provinces, provides medical facilities to cure the injured Taliban, even hold mourning ceremonies for Taliban killed in war against Afghan security forces. There is no need for explaining the reasons behind the Russians cooperation with Taliban however, the cooperation of Central Asian countries that are under the direct threat of terrorism and extremism and thousands of their citizens alongside Taliban are fighting against Afghanistan is not justifiable. Because it is an undeniable fact, if Taliban dominate in Afghanistan, their next target would be Central Asian countries.
The Afghan people are seriously concern that number of neighboring countries is taking the position of Pakistan against Afghan people who have been fighting for years against terrorism and extremism not only is a disastrous threat to the region, but the entire world and let not them to achieve their inhuman goals. Therefore, it would be no wise for those countries to side Pakistan in war against Afghan people. If they have taken the stance from the fear of Taliban and other terrorist groups, it would be the most awesome move that the neighboring countries not only taking against Afghan interests, but against themselves. Therefore, it would be better for them inspiring from Afghans, firmly stand against all terrorist groups and fight bravely to end the danger of terrorism and extremism forever.
