Kabul (BNA) Improvement of relations, decrease of tension and promoting of trust are new hopes from Pakistan foreign minister visit to Afghanistan.  However the visit has been interpreted differently.
BNA political affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes Mahmood Quraishi who has newly appointed as foreign minister of Pakistan, in his first trip abroad has come to Afghanistan to improve relations between the countries , decrease tension between Kabul and Islamabad and to promote trust and confidence between the two neighboring countries.
Choosing Afghanistan as the first destination of Mahmood Quraishis’s tour abroad indicates that improvement of relations with Kabul is at top of Pakistan’s foreign policy.
Umran khan the current prime minister of Pakistan in first days of his electoral campaign, also after his appointment as prime minister cried out slogans of decreasing of tension and pledge to settle Pakistan’s problems in national and international arena.
The purpose of decreasing tension is improvement of Pakistan’s relations with India and Afghanistan. Pakistan has experienced very tense relations with the two countries.
Quraishis’ visit to Kabul was accompanied with many hopes and the authorities in Kabul considered it with great achievements and Pakistan releasing a statement called it effective and constructive.
Although politicians in Kabul consider the visits of Afghan and Pakistani authorities from each other’s countries useful for removing mistrusts and establishing an atmosphere of cooperation between the two countries, but the experiences achieved during the recent years show that Pakistan uses diplomacy, dialogue and even compromise as a means in sensitive situation to achieve its own interests. During the last years, the authorities of two countries visited the capitals of each other’s many times and Pakistan pledged for cooperation, but in practice did nothing.
Pakistan during the years, supported Taliban’s leaders, provided safe havens for terrorists which were problematic for Afghanistan. These were the main factor for tension in relation of the two countries. Now Pakistan claims that it is seeking to bring changes in its policy on Afghanistan, should prove that it is honest in changing the bitter facts exist in relation of the two countries.
On the other hand it is the army general of Pakistan who says the last word in policy of that country. Has the recent changes taken place in coordination of the army general or Umran Khan acted alone?
If the decision regarding to the improvement of relations has been taken only by Umran Khan it would be in vain. The people of Afghanistan are well aware about the facts of regions and the demands of Pakistan. That country knows how to protect itself in critical situation.
Although, Mahmood Quraishi came to Kabul and created new hopes for the improvement of relation between Afghanistan and Pakistan not should be too optimistic or pessimistic. It would be better to be realistic and determine the policy and action according to the realities.
Therefore, it would be better to give a clear message to Pakistan that it has let no patient for Afghan people any more, if that country evades the realities and again seeking to launch new games, Afghanistan should punish it via exerting pressure through legal means and international organs.

Kabul (BNA) The Government are extending New Zealand's military training deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as renewing three peacekeeping missions in Middle East and Africa.
The Prime Minister announced the extension today, with the Iraq deployment extended to June 2019 and reducing the number of military personnel from 143 to 121 from November this year.
New Zealand's Afghanistan deployment has been extended to September 2019.
"New Zealand is firmly committed to international efforts to fight ISIS," Jacinda Ardern said.
"While there have been significant efforts on the ground in recent years, it is still clear ISIS remains a threat, and further support is required to help the Iraqi security forces ensure ISIS cannot reassert itself, and building capacity of the Iraqi forces is one way in which we can do that."
It comes after the previous National Government were criticised by the Labour Party in 2016 for extending the Iraq deployment by 18 months. Then-leader Andrew Little said the troops in Taji had the party’s "full support for the work they do", however he said then- Prime Minister John Key owed "it New Zealanders to explain why we're committing our forces to an ongoing volatile theatre of war".
"He has not been straight with New Zealanders, nor has he made the case for mission creep," Mr Little said.
When Ms Ardern was asked about her party's 2016 stance, she said this extension was "fulfilling our obligations".
"We already have a commitment to a current training programme that extends out to the middle of 2019."
Ms Ardern said the Government would be considering the options for New Zealand’s future contributions in the case of Iraq and Afghanistan deployments.
The three peacekeeping missions that have been renewed are to South Sudan, the Golan Heights and Lebanon, and the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt.
