Kabul (BNA) While there are reports about progress on talks between America and Taliban and Pakistan has crucial role on holding the talks, president Ghani asks for clarifying relation between Pakistan and Taliban.
BNA political analyst commenting on the issue writes Mohammad Ashraf Ghani the president of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan in visit with US special envoy for Afghanistan has insisted that Taliban should clarify their relations with Pakistan and Pakistan should clarity its relations with Taliban.
The issue presented exactly in time, Pakistan more interference in Afghanistan’s affairs than any other time before; even it is seeking to recognize the group. The issue became clear when Pakistan officially invited Taliban delegation, but Afghan government strongly resisting against this program neutralized it.
President Ghani talking with Zalmay Khalilzad clearly said that many basic issues have been cleared about peace in Afghanistan, further joint measure required. On a new working method with Khalilzad has been agreed, based on it information would be shared, on a specific agenda, persistent consultations take place and serious attention would be paid on peace in national, regional, international and Islamic countries  level.
These statements by President Ghani is a clear respond to the ideas that Afghanistan is on the margin of peace talks and has an ambiguous role.
Fortunately, the efforts of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan has changed the situation and now US representatives will conduct talks with Taliban based on work new method. Regarding to president Ghani’s statements which he says Taliban’s relations with Pakistan and Pakistan’s relations with Taliban should be cleared should be said that there is no doubt that  the two has close relations, as US and other NATO member countries have repeatedly talked on that regard. Even after Saudi’s financial aid to Pakistan asked Saudi Arabia that to make its aids conditional, this is pointing to effective role of Pakistan determined via Taliban for itself. Therefore, one cannot doubt on close relation between Taliban and Pakistan.
This is Taliban deny talking Afghan government is this that cannot act on their own will and Pakistan until accessing its objectives will continue to destroy the peace process in Afghanistan. In such a situation, Islamic Republic of Afghanistan requires to know the side of negotiations, from Afghan people view point the side of negotiations is Pakistan that uses Taliban as a means. If we precisely look at Taliban’s situation during the last sixteen years, there is no any change in the group and there ties with Al- Qaeda and other terrorist groups continues as before. Taliban are still a strong supporter of terrorist groups and this is not possible without receiving the aids of other countries. Therefore, relation between Taliban and Pakistan in a strategic tie and until the ties between Pakistan and Taliban exist insuring peace in Afghanistan and the region would be impossible.
