The development of previous years put Afghanistan at focus point of world attention and the countries across the world demanded for long term political and economic ties with Afghanistan, which is an emphasize on pivotal role of this country in world level.

BNA political analyst writes:  Recently, Hamid Karzai the president of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan and Polish president visited at the sideline of 67th session of UN General Assembly. The two sides, in addition to other relevant important issues, talked on preparing a draft of strategic cooperation between the two countries, which will be prepared and finalized after necessary consultations.

It is not only Poland that wants for concluding a long term strategic cooperation agreement with Afghanistan, also  Pakistan our neighboring country, tends  to extend its relation with Afghanistan within the framework of such  an agreement.

Mr. Karzai in a meeting with Mr. Asif Ali Zardari the Pakistan president in New York, while the British prime minister was also present, expressed his agreement on finalizing the draft of strategic cooperation agreement between the two countries until the end of 2013. Earlier to this Afghanistan has signed long term strategic co operation agreements with powerful countries of the region and the world, like India, US, Great Britain, Germany, France etc and recently such an agreement also was signed with China. Political activist believe, the Afghanistan tendency toward ensuring peace at national, regional and international levels, key role of the country in international issues, emphasizing on coexistence and regional cooperation and finally prevention from extremism were the key policies of Afghanistan which made the countries of the world including military and economic powers to extend their relations with Afghanistan, by signing strategic cooperation agreements. Because the leadership of Afghanistan always considers mutual understanding and reconciliation the only way of settling the problems and insists instead of seeking supremacy and exploiting the other countries should think about the interests of people all over the world. This realistic and wisely designed policy which meets the interests of all mankind faced the positive reaction of the world and led to the signing of strategic agreements with various countries.

Afghanistan tries its best, using the agreements and commitments to   prevail peace and trust in the region and the world and to prevent the reoccurrence of incidents which have caused huge casualties and destructions. Afghanistan wants instead illegal competitions and rivalries in the region build and atmosphere of trust and co operations in the region and ensures economic cooperation among the countries of the region.

Signing strategic cooperation agreements with a number of countries and talking with a number of other countries in that regard, are instances of the efforts which lead the south Asian countries to be a center of peace, security and prosperity and will establish a new chapter of political developments which will be positive and extensive.

Afghans believe to the world order and access to that order is impossible without peace and stability. This way of thinking and belief has maid the Afghan authorities to use every opportunity for restoring peace and stability in the country and in the region. If they negotiate for concluding strategic co operation agreements outside the country, they prefer to settle the disputes inside the country via negotiations and mutual understanding. In spite of many barriers and obstacles on the way of peace, they insist on ensuring peace via peaceful means.  The experiences of the past indicate that insecurity and instability in Afghanistan, is not only horrible and painful for Afghan oppressed people but threatens the region and the world as a whole. So, it is the responsibility of the region and international community who talk about ending hostilities and ensuring peace in Afghanistan work honestly like Afghan in that regard in order to create an atmosphere, suitable for progress and welfare of the people around the world.

He condemned this act and added that either this type of insults is made through production of a film or caricatures can never be justified as freedom of speech.
In regard with the hide outs of the terrorism centers on the other side of the Afghan borders said that there is no terrorism in our villages and cities and they were not here in the past , as well, while the terrorism roots and hide outs are situated beyond the borders of Afghanistan.
In respect to Afghanistan’s relations with Pakistan he stressed that we are committed in the atmosphere of fraternal relations with Pakistan, and we are also aware of the issues that are making our ties tense as well.
Because for some time the Pakistan rockets attacks on Afghan border villages will harm the present Afghan and Pakistan efforts for security.

Kabul, (BNA) Hamid Karzai the president of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan delivered his speech in annual meetings of UN General Assembly focused on crucial issues of the day such as heinous acts against religious sacred of Muslims in some western countries, continuation of terrorist operation in Afghanistan, peace process in the country, the role of neighboring country Pakistan in settling disputes in Afghanistan and Syria’s crisis.
Political analyst of BNA regarding the issue writes: Afghan president on 26 September 2012 delivered a speech in the meetings of UN General Assembly touching on main issues of the country and current developments in the world, asked for their urgent settlements.
Among the issues the president talked about were a film made by a fanatic Christian orthodox and earlier publication of a cartoon that humiliated Islamic sacred and hurt the heart and sentiments of more than 1.5 billion Muslims in the world  and provoked fatal incidents.
The president touching the issues called them alien to freedom of speech and unjustifiable and expressed his concern on anti- Islam activities which threats co- existence between various cultures and civilizations.

Mr. Karzai touching upon the continuation of terrorist attacks on villages and towns of Afghanistan, emphasized that are not rooted there but all resources of terrorism and its supporting centers are located behind the borders of Afghanistan and the world in order to curb and root out this evil phenomenon should fight it in its sanctuaries and original sites, where terrorists are recruited, trained and sent for terrorist and suicide attacks which had caused heavy casualties and destructions in our country so far.
The president emphasized on fighting terrorists in their sanctuaries and hideouts while it is clear for world public where the save places and sanctuaries of terrorists  are located and from where terrorism is exported to Afghanistan  as a result o which innocent Afghan civilians and international troops who fight terrorism  loses their lives.
President Karzai in his speech once again talking about the programs of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan on restoring peace and stability in the country said, “We have already started the process of peace in order to bring all armed oppositions in to a peaceful life in the community.” He added “our bosom for peace and reconciliation is not only open to Taliban but to all armed oppositions who want to live in peace with dignity in their beloved country.   Just we want them to end violence, sever their relations with terrorist networks, protect the ten year achievements and respect the constitution. What is important to focus on the president’s speech is maintaining the ten year achievements and honoring the constitution, this is ensuring woman’s rights and freedom of speech and emphasized the provisions of the constitution should be obeyed.

The other important issue which the Afghan president raised in UN Genera Assembly was the role of neighboring countries in ending the disputes in Afghanistan. Pakistan has been considered as a country which enjoys a great influence among Taliban and in the other hand, the border areas of Afghanistan have been the target of Pakistan’s artillery and missile attacks during the recent months. Also, Pakistan is located on the main supplying road of Afghanistan and the rate of exchanging commercial goods between the two countries is very high.
Beside, the issues mentioned above, in recent years, terrorist incidents have been increased in Pakistan which are deeply rooted in regional events,
The president of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, considering the role of Pakistan in ensuring peace in Afghanistan insisted that peace talks is not only positive for ensuring peace and stability in Afghanistan but it is also, vital for ensuring security in Pakistan and the region as a whole.
The other issue which, Mr. Karzai pointed out in his speech in General Assembly was the existence of administrative corruption in the country which the donors  depending  their financial aids to the measures the Afghan government adopts for rooting up this evil phenomenon.
It should be said that Afghanistan has stepped up its activities against this heinous action and numerous agencies have been assigned to work for reduction and finally for complete eradication of it. But this bitter fact should not be ignored that certain outside organs also, have a great role in dissemination of this satanic deed and the world community should fight against the outside factors.
The Afghan president, touching on unrest and bloodshed in Syria representing the people of Afghanistan who have been experienced three decades of war and destructions in their country asked the Syrians to avoid violence and to solve their problems via negotiations and national understanding.
