Kabul (BNA)Is it possible to find a way out from this complicated war and end the problem?
BNA political analyst commenting on the issue writes efforts for conducting peace negotiations with Taliban and the role of big countries in this game clearly demonstrate that our beloved country because of discord and tension has changed in to the playground for great players and everybody wants to play his role in this heinous game.  
In any case, discussion on peace is extensive, all people want peace, because of this they welcome any move on the direction. However, the statements by the authorities of neighboring countries wither the sapling of this humanistic move in the root.
Afghan people strongly believe that without honest cooperation of Pakistan peace never restore in to Afghanistan and in to the region, because Pakistan has been changed in to a safe haven for all kinds of terrorism and terrorist activities. For this reason it pursues peace process everywhere in the world to damage the process.
With commencement of the second phase of Khalilzad to the region and some other countries an attempt to restore peace in Afghanistan; Pakistan foreign ministry announced that the US expectations from Pakistan are not tolerable.
The spokesperson of Pakistan foreign ministry in his recent has stated that Islamabad has done everything in its capacity in fighting against terrorism and establishing peace in Afghanistan, therefore US should not expect more than that.
The statements explicitly indicate that   Pakistan is seeking something else, according some politicians Pakistan using the dual policy wants to take more privileges from America in this juncture of time.
But some others focusing on rhetoric of Taliban’s representatives in Moscow conference say that it would be difficult for Pakistan to desist supporting terrorists.
According to them, terrorism and terrorists are two major means that Pakistan has used and uses in political deals in the region and beyond the region.
The above mentioned reasons, we come to the conclusion that Pakistan as the main supporter of terrorism and terrorist in the region plays a dual policy and deceives world community and America.
Therefore the way for curbing the crisis requires practical measures that the world community should adopt regarding to restoring peace in Afghanistan and force Pakistan to work honestly for conducting peace negotiations for restoring peace in Afghanistan.
