Kabul (BNA) The Trump administration has told its top diplomats to seek direct talks with the Taliban, a significant shift in US policy in Afghanistan, done in the hope of jump-starting negotiations to end the 17-year war.
The Taliban have long said they will first discuss peace only with the Americans, who toppled their regime in Afghanistan in 2001. But the US has mostly insisted that the Afghan government must take part.
The recent strategy shift, which was confirmed by several senior American and Afghan officials, is intended to bring those two positions closer and lead to broader, formal negotiations to end the long war.

Education Threatened By Taliban

Monday, July 16, 2018

Kabul (BNA) Taliban in recent days prohibiting the students going to schools have established a panic and fearful situation in some parts of the country.
BNA educational affairs commenting on the issue writes recently Taliban have set on fire two schools in suburb of Pul- I – Alam the capital of Logar province and closed 75 schools and deprived thousands of children attending schools in that province.  Only in Mohammad Agha district fifteen thousand students cannot attend school from the fear of this ignorant and barbaric group.
It is not only Logar that badly affected by the evil and criminal dealing of Taliban, the problem of Helmandi students are not better than Logari students. In Ghazni, Zabul, Kunduz, Herat and Bakghis due to regressive dealing of Taliban are experiencing horrible problems. The educational and knowledge enemies have closed tens of schools in various parts of the country to the students and prevented thousands of students going to schools. In addition this backward group has used schools located in their control areas as military base and even prison.
Using schools as a military base or prison has done as an incentive that state forces for safeguarding public facilities among them schools do not attack such places, so Taliban consider themselves safe in public institutions.
Taliban have called the closure of schools as the revenge of the killing of one of their commanders who lost his life in an air attack.
Taliban have frankly said that they would close the schools if state forces continue their cleansing operations.
Taliban using schools as a means for achieving their evil goals, the authorities of Education Ministry have repeatedly said that education is a public utility project, free from any political dependency should be supported and developed.
The ministry of education has also asked the parties involved in war not harm education system but as a public unitarily organization support it.
The closure of hundreds of schools in various parts of the country has psychologically affected the students and damaged the process of acquiring knowledge in the country.
Unfortunately, Taliban claim that they started their so called up rising from seminaries, but so are spare no any hostility against education and still continue to think as medieval ages  people
The authorities of ministry of education say they are trying to settle the problem of the closure of schools with support of dignitaries, Imams of the mosques and people with good reputation.
However, the last experience show that so far Taliban have not listened to the logic and words presented by elders and dignitaries in that end.

In the past, students had to attend their classes under tents or in open air, during both hot and cold weather.  Therefore, Badashkahn’s PED proposed the initial plan to construct ten schools in Badakhshan’s rural areas to the provincial development committee.  It further developed the schools’ design with RIDF’s support.  Construction works started in 2016.  Today, six new school buildings are completed.  The remaining four schools are located in the provincial capital Feyzabad and the districts of Yaftal-e-Payan and Shahr-e-Buzurg.  They are expected to be finished in the months to come.
The statement went on as saying, the buildings offer a total of 74 fully equipped classrooms and 23 administrative rooms.  Clean water wells and toilets significantly improve hygienic conditions, mitigating the risk of infections.  Volleyball courts, walk ways and newly planted trees ensure a pleasant learning environment for the students.
