Kabul (BNA) The neighboring and the countries of the region should build their relations with Afghanistan according to international norms and standards.
BNA political affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes:  after Donald Trump the president of America cancelled the agreement that close to signing and Taliban were near to victory, they seem more Vern arable
Taliban in order to find the lost opportunity tried their best to bring US in to negotiations once again. Sometimes, they are pleading, other times threatening and sometimes; trying to introduce their regional and international friends and cooperators to America and in this way bring US under pressure.
Recently a four member delegation of the group went to Russia and Iran.
Taliban delegation in Moscow with the second rate officials of that country’s foreign ministry discussed the issues related Afghan peace process and supporting of that country from Taliban. Earlier Taliban have asked Russia to sign at the end of peace agreement between America and Taliban as a guarantor. Russia warmly accepted the proposal.  
But in Iran, the Taliban delegation talked with the authorities of foreign ministry of that county in a high position. (Peace process, recent developments and safety of Iranian projects and the strategy of permanent peace were the issues between the two sides. 
On the other hand Abas Stanukzay  a senior official of Taliban in Doha an interview with senior official of Taliban in Doha in an interview with a western media has asked Trump to send an American delegation on to negotiation table and Taliban are ready make ceasefire with America.
If we precisely pay attention to the proposal it points out to ceasefire only with American military and pains and the problems Afghan people suffering not only ignored but insist on permanency of the deadly fighting.
The regional countries hosting the Taliban delegation in a time, the group during the last month committed the most heinous act against Afghan people.
For all above terrorist events, Taliban claimed the responsibility. Therefore, how do they place Taliban in their capitals and honor them with great names?
It would not be important for Afghan people, what have Taliban have done for their identity but expects the friendly and neighboring countries to act against the group as they deserved.
On the other hand Abas Stanukzai one of the senior officials’ of Taliban in Doha interviewing with a western media has asked president Trump to send an American delegation to negotiation table and Taliban are ready to make a ceasefire with America.
The countries of the region are hosting the Taliban delegation in a time; the group committed the most brutal acts against Afghan people, such as attack on wedding ceremony.
Taliban claimed the responsibility of all above terrorist incidents and honored for conduction such satanic incidents.
It would be important for Afghan people and government that what Taliban are doing for their identity, but expect the friendly and neighboring countries to build their relations with Afghanistan according to international norms and standards. 
Since Taliban is a serious threat for the security of the region and world, therefore hosting the group is against all principles and relation among the countries.
