Afghan-Pak Bilateral Regional Relations

Friday, March 17, 2017
Kabul (BNA)   Since long times Afghanistan and Pakistan have very close cultural, social, economic and security relations. Due to wars and conflicts, the Afghans were forced to leave their homeland and migrate to other countries particularly Pakistan and the later had been hosting the Afghan refugees for long years. People of both countries have similar culture and traditions.
Pakistan has always been endeavoring to follow a double standard policy with Afghanistan while these two regional Islamic countries have inseparable relations with each other from every point of view. The tribes and ethnic people who are living on both sides of Durand Line, are inseparable from each other. But recently the Afghan refugees who have spent difficult days and nights are strongly harassed by Pakistan officials said police they are not behind based on migration principles and laws despite of existence. Particular migration laws at global level. But unfortunately this country, Pakistan threat our countrymen time and again by different pretexts. At a glance at the region and world situation we find that our country is the cradle of big empires, conquerors and ghazis and has a long and special history. Afghanistan has a history of over 5000 years but now the time has reached that these two regional countries should setup very close relations but unfortunately Pakistan has always tried to disturb Afghans and bombards our holy territory with rockets and artillery and martyr our innocent people.
Our eastern provinces have recently witnesses’ bombardment and casualties due to provocations’ of Pakistan. The Afghan people have now been fed up with wars and conflicts and don’t want these chaotic situation to continue. Regional experts believe that current wars is the war of aliens that has been inflicted on Afghans as a result of which thousands innocent Afghans have been martyred, lost their homes and became orphans, handicapped. Afghanistan is a peace loving country with an Islamic system and law and wishes security of the global. Afghanistan is the heart of Asia and is the crossroad of central Asian countries and can be a good center of trade and transit. We have recently witnessed threats and sanctions on borders and the government and people expect that these problems be concluded quickly and enable people of both courtiers to move in a free atmosphere.
