Kabul (BNA) While the ICG considers the situation of Afghanistan critical after 2014, but the NATO authorities and UN diplomats, calling that analysis and concerns unjustifiable and are optimistic about the future of Afghanistan.
According to BNA report, the ICG recently has released a report which draws a bad image from Afghanistan after 2014 when foreign troops leave the country.
Although the Afghan authorities severely condemning the report have called it nonsense and ridiculous, now it is also instigated the UN and the special  envoy of the organization has said in Kabul that the international community won’t let Afghanistan to face the predicted situation.
He said that the presidential elections would be held in determined time so; the prediction of ICG is not true. The UN confirmed that the international community stands beside Afghanistan and won’t allow facing the horrible situation predicted by various sources.
In this regard, we can point to the statements of NATO general secretary who talking to correspondents prior to the holding of NATO member countries defense ministers meeting, answering a question, about his expectation on post 2014 Afghanistan said, “ our aim is an independent, stable, with notation sovereignty Afghanistan to be able to defend itself.
The important point is this, NATO and international community won’t let Afghanistan alone and our partnership with that country will continue. 

The above criticisms indicate that the International Crisis Group with publication of such baseless and avoid of national and international facts and realities, wants to disrupt the public mind and to create self trust crisis among people. But, Afghan people sustaining many hardships during 3 decades of disputes have reached a political maturity that they know, where the reports are rooted and from where they originate.
