Commentary

Thursday, September 05, 2019
Kabul (BNA) Afghan people want a peace agreement to be extensive and respond to all questions and concerns of the people.
BNA political and social affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes Zalmay Khalilzad the US special envoy for Afghanistan after ending the 9th round of negotiation with Taliban came to Kabul from Doha to share the details of agreement of America and Taliban with Afghan government.
The spokesman of Afghan president has confirmed that Afghan government has been informed from the details of the agreement between America and Taliban and after precisely assessing it will announce its position in that regard.
There are many words regarding to the agreement between America and Taliban which have caused concerns among the people.
According to the media America has only informed a number of its allies including Afghanistan from the details of the agreement and have not given them the main copy of the agreement, even a number of senior members of President Trump’s government like Mr. John Bolton the security advisor of US president have no access to the agreement.
In the draft of the agreement between America and Taliban as the media reported Taliban have interred negotiation from the position of Islamic Emirates and not pointed to security issues as deserved. Generally the draft focused on issues relevant to the interests and programs of America and Taliban. 
What have mostly caused the concerns of Afghan people are the ambiguities of the agreement between America and Taliban that still a few people know about the context of it.
Afghan people have the right to know what is going on regarding the future and political fate of their country.
The people expect their government to share the realities with them. The people have coordinated the government in protecting public interests and safeguarding the achievements of the last eighteen years.
When the facts are hidden or due to regards not announced, in such a situation suspicions increased that leads to mentally destruction of people that is very dangerous, should be avoided.
The Afghan people   giving sacrifices supported democracy participated in the election and established an elected state.
This is Afghan government that safeguards the national identity and will of Afghan people, therefore in existence of such a system, the people have the right to know what programs and dealings are going on in that country that affect the fate of people.
The people expect, the current issues should be made public to further increase the unity and consensus between the people and the state.
