Kabul (BNA) A tripartite session of high level Afghan, Chinese and Pakistani diplomats holds in Kabul
BNA political affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes the tripartite session of Afghan, Chinese and Pakistani foreign ministers held in Kabul, security cooperation and border issues among the three countries were the main subjects discussed in the session.
Last year, the foreign ministers of the three countries holding a session in Beijing the capital of China discussed the same issues, started and ended with optimisms but the situation remained challenging.
The people believe that it would be better, the participants of three partite sessions in Kabul, instead discussing new issues, explain their achievements after the last year’s session.
If we look precisely at the process of developments of incidents during the last year, there is no any change in the tense situation of Afghanistan in the region. Afghanistan is still in the grip of Pakistan’s wrong policies. Pakistan instead trust building in relation between the two countries, mainly focused over its strategic interests which further spread distrust in the region.
While the situation of Afghanistan is complicated and the condition of the region is not favorable, Afghan people want to know People’s Republic of China as a powerful neighbor of Afghanistan and in the region and an influencing country on Pakistan what has done for decreasing the adventurous policies of Pakistan.
Today, the people are talking about the presence of IS in east and north of Afghanistan. Russian resources blatantly have said that Karachi and Peshawar in Pakistan were the main passing road of IS in to Afghanistan. Therefore when there is talking about security concerns, how much China and Pakistan has responded to Afghanistan concerns regarding to transmitting IS through Pakistan soil in to Afghanistan.
In last year’s session they were talking on trust building, while the people of Afghanistan still distrust Pakistan activities and ask how much Kabul session would be effective in removing the distrusts between Afghanistan and Pakistan relations?
Since a long time we have been witnessing numerous sessions on Afghanistan problem, but unfortunately had no any consequences.
The people insist that the importance of such sessions depends on actions of governments. Diplomatic sessions should not be launched using good words but the commitments and implementing the commitments in practice should be considered as the basic aim.
