Kabul (BNA) Afghanistan is in a complicated political and military situation, for going out from this difficult situation, it has required the political elites come together and find a proper way for its solution.
BNA political affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes for going out from the existence of current crisis patience and accepting each other are seriously needed. The government for overcoming the current crisis always tried its best to have the viewpoints of political elites and political parties. Now, the people are mostly talking about conducting peace negotiations with Taliban and Taliban have their own conditions   that can be observed, only via conducting a national session with Taliban. 
For achieving this great aim, Islamic Republic of Afghanistan prepared and presented the program of conducting an advisory session with Taliban to find a reasonable way for the solution of problem.
The consultative session reflects the views and demands of people; therefore, boycotting it, is not justifiable.
Conducting such a session is seriously required.  While Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, sparing no any efforts for holding such a session and trying to have the viewpoints of the masses on developing the current situation, established high reconciliation council in order to put and inform the politicians and elites on the new political developments. Also, such a council has already established but its sessions are not well organized. The problem is this that a number of politicians who have their own views and programs are not well organized and coordinated that further complicated the way for reaching a general consensus.
Separated and group based sessions are not the way for settling the problem, contrary it makes the problem more serious.
The political elites instead of boycotting this or that, or having different views it would be better for them to   have a united view and stance based on national values and instructions of constitution, in order to have a united view in upcoming Doha negotiations among Afghans, talk from one view and one stance.
The consultative or reconciliation council is a source for exchanging views and reflects the view and will of people that should be supported.
