Kabul (BNA) Ceasing the activities of World Red Crescent in Afghanistan has the worst consequences for the country.  Our people hope this beneficiary world organization restart its activities in Afghanistan as soon as possible.
BNA social affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes the Red Cross Committee after the warning of Taliban has ceased its activities in Afghanistan. This international organization ceased its activities in Afghanistan after Taliban issuing a statement said that the Red Cross has not fulfilled its mission properly, and from now on will not let the committee to carry its activities in areas under their control. Beside International Red Crescent, World Health Organization also ceased its work in Afghanistan.
Taliban have said that the organization has suspicious programs.
After issuing a statement by Taliban, the Red Cross suspended its activities in Afghanistan and has said that until receiving Taliban’s confidence will not restart its work in Afghanistan.
Afghan people expect great hopes from World Red Crescent and other international agencies. Ceasing the activities of this worldly important agency takes place in a time, violence and conflicts are increasing in Afghanistan that can have bad consequences for the country.
In war stricken countries, such international organizations meet the expectations of people by offering their aids.
International Red Cross is carrying its activities In Afghanistan for about 40 years and this is the fourth country in world level where Red Cross carrying its mission. This is the only organization that provides humanitarian aids in war affected areas, carrying the injured  to the hospital treats them, exchanges war prisoners and provides water and food for residents of war affected areas are main activities services of Red Cross carrying in Afghanistan and other communities.
Taliban are not the owner and the ruler of this country to determine the job and activities of international organizations and agencies that provide humanitarian aids to Afghanistan.  If Taliban not accept and let international agencies in their areas under their control, then why they forgetting their obligations, cease their aids in all over Afghanistan.
The strategy and working objectives of such international organizations determine their ethnical obligations, it would not be correct for the threats of a terrorist group forget all Afghan nation and needy people.
Afghan people believe to such international agencies and they should not for the threats of terrorist group forget for get Afghan people and its needy people.
If Taliban are disturbing their activities, Afghan government and its people are supporting them.
Islamic Republic of Afghanistan not only provides the opportunities for international organizations, but also spares no any efforts for their cooperation and support.
We hope, the International Red Cross to change its decision and restart its activities in Afghanistan.
