Commentary

Wednesday, August 14, 2019
Kabul (BNA) Mohammad Ashraf Ghani president of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan says the future of Afghanistan is determined inside the country by Afghans; there is a consensus among the people in this regard.
BNA political affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes the eighth round of negotiation between the representatives of US and Taliban ended in Doha.  This round of negotiation started on August third and lasted for nine days.
Taliban have said that the two sides have reached some agreements and for upcoming measures will consult with their leaders.
Although the two sides are enthusiastic about the agreements but it is not clear when Taliban and US sign at the end of the agreement. In finalizing the agreement Pakistan, The US allies and gulf countries have essential role.
Khalilzad the US special envoy has gone to Washington and Taliban will consult with their leaders in Pakistan to determine the fate of peace in Afghanistan.
Although Afghan people and government consider peace a need for their country and protecting the lives of their people but strongly insist that any peace process should take place and lead by Afghans.  While the new peace developments mostly have taken place outside the country and Afghan people do not know about the results of them yet.
If we precisely look and think about the pains and agonies of our people during the last 40 years specially the last 18 years a time the foreign forces attending the country, Afghan are the main victims of the disputes and competition of foreign countries.
Afghan people had never invited Red Army’s forces and never consulted with them for forming international coalition to fight against terrorism.  This proves that the Afghans have been just the victims of foreign games and programs.
Although during the previous years, many efforts have been carried out for restoring peace and stability in to the country but had no any result, the reason is this that the foreigners were only looking on their benefits, and did not observed the Afghans’ interests.
At the current efforts in Doha the first condition of foreigners is guaranteeing that Afghanistan will never be a threat for other countries, while there is nothing about the future politics of Afghanistan. 
Afghans sustained the heavy casualties and ruins during the previous years, because of presence of foreign troops.
It is clear that in current efforts mostly have been thought about foreign countries interests not the interests of Afghan suffering people.
Therefore, peace and security only restore in Afghanistan and in the region with great involvement of Afghans in peace process and the political system of the country determine by its own citizens and the will of them should be highly respected. Without doubt this will rescue the region and even the entire world from the evil of terrorism.

Kabul (BNA) The US and NATO Forces Commander in Afghanistan. Gen. Scott Miller, in a statement on Tuesday, rejected reports of limitations in US operations in the country and said they we have no such orders and have made no such changes. 
Quoting senior Pentagon officials, Newsweek reported on Monday that US personnel have been ordered to limit nearly all offensive combat operations against the Taliban and cease advising the Afghan National Defense and Security Forces as the Trump administration proposed cutting US troop strength in Afghanistan by nearly half to 6,000 as a means of finalizing “technical” details among Taliban leadership.
The withdrawal figure is subject to change, however, depending on the course of the ongoing conflict and the talks trying to end it, US officials said as quoted by Newsweek.
But Gen. Miller said this article is “inaccurate and speculative”, citing unnamed sources who are likely as far from the subject as they are from Afghanistan itself.
“The characterizations of changes to our authorities and operations have no basis in fact,” he said.  “We have no such orders and have made no such changes.”
This comes as the US and the Taliban negotiators wrapped up the eight round of peace talks in Qatar.  The two sides are expected to sign a peace agreement within the next few days which will provide the ground for US troop withdrawal and reduction of violence in Afghanistan.
