Afghan Government Says the Last Words for Peace

Saturday February 9, 2019

Kabul (BNA) Maintaining national values and the achievements of the last 18 years for Afghan people as the most holy things never compromise on them.
BNA political affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes Shir Mohammad Stanikzai who has gone to Moscow to meet Afghan politicians once again evading Afghan national values again raised the cancellation of constitution of the country. Stanikzai due his own interpretation has said that the current constitution of Afghanistan has no legality for the group, it is a barrier on the way of peace and this law has copied from peace and imposed on Afghan people.
Some days ago, Stanikzai invading Afghan national army and other security organs of the country had said that if their dreams and aspirations realized and rule the country the will cancel  army and other security organs.
What have Mullah Stanikzai raised are not his own words and thought, they are the initiatives, dreams and programs of Pakistan intelligence service that is trying to impose a puppet or a weak government on its northern neighbor, this is only possible when there is no law and order in Afghanistan while based of constitution Afghan army has enforced law and order in the country. The alien intelligence service over years has tried to destroy values in Afghanistan and ruin the achievement of Afghan people. Unfortunately, Taliban consider theirs elves Afghans, fight alongside Pakistan in this anti Afghan and anti- humane battle. Taliban are ready to deal with America, go along Russian interests, and work for ensuring Pakistanis and Arabs interests, bur when there is talking about ending Afghan killings, even not agree in short period ceasefire and desist from eruption and suicide attacks.
Taliban raise the issue of dismantling Afghan army in presence of whom who helped in establishing Afghan government after toppling Taliban tyrannical and meddle age regime and pave the way for building a new life for Afghan people. Bur now in presence of the same figures say that the law is imposed on Afghan people while they were under occupation, but discuss the way of settling the current problem with the same figures.
Taliban should not ignore the realities, if today certain circles are building their identity and the agenda of peace prepared according their will, they belong to the new games of foreigners who use Taliban as a means for achieving their own ambitious goals.
Taliban know that the process of peace goes through the government route and ultimately, what the group want from Washington and Moscow via Pakistani generals, will finally rise in negotiation table with Afghan current government. Therefore, it would be better for the group not to be a factor for bloodshed and killing in the country anymore. Taliban should understand that the constitution, national army, freedom of speech, achievements of women section is the main achievements of Afghan people they will maintain forever as national values and never dealt on them. If the aim is discussion on amendment of the constitution, this is predicted in the same law, therefore it should be followed and assessed via legal means.
