Kabul (BNA) Officials of the Ministry for Defense said that the Afghan security forces were capable enough to thwart the government armed insurgents’ attacks, as they could attain considerable achievements in the battlefields so far.
Brig. Gen. Dawlat Waziri, the spokesperson for the MoD said, ‘the Taliban are making effort to insecure the situation and show their power somehow, but they should know that the Afghan National Security and Defense Forces (ANSDF) are fully ready to react against their vicious designs.’ The Afghan security forces are still fighting armed insurgents in some parts of the country and don’t let them disrupt the security situation, Waziri further said. As peace talks and holding world summits on Afghanistan are getting serious, the insurgents are doing their best to prove to the world they are capable enough to conduct terror attacks and carry out subversive activities, Waziri said. But they should remember that the ANSDF are stronger and will defeat them as well as they don’t have any option but to join peace process, he went on to say.
Meanwhile, Gen. Afzal Aman said that the group have thought it will reach its goal by making insecure some districts of the country, adding the enemies will never reach their goal in the country. Gen. Aman stressed that the people should not be concerned on abilities of the insurgents, the Afghan security forces are getting stronger, as they have obtained good successes in battlefields so far. Meanwhile, the lower house of the parliament while lauding the Afghan security forces efforts in ensuring security, stressed that the media should strive to increase the morale of the ANSDF and make their reports from the battlefields in consider with national interests, because media are like a linking bridge between the government and people. An MP, Hashimi said, ‘beside people support in strengthening of the Afghan security forces, the media also play significant role, through which the people are mostly get informed on incidents and events going on in the country.’
The military experts believe that further attention should be paid in equipping and structure of the domestic forces so they are able to fight any security threats, and signing peace agreement with Hezb-e-Islami Afghanistan led by Gulbuddin Hekmatyar is a good opportunity to all insurgent groups to join peace process. Another military expert and former military officer, Hadi Khalid said, ‘the Taliban are being ordered by some foreign hands, whom are trying to introduce Afghanistan as a turbulent country to the world and avail the opportunity to their interest, but they have always been defeated by brave Afghan security forces.
In the same time, the citizens are getting optimistic to future, they say the people of Afghanistan have now a national unity system and expect the security entities to be prepared for ensuring security of the country. Rahmatullah, a Kunduz resident who is now living in Kabul said, ‘I expect the U.S. to pay serious heed to further equipping of the Afghan security forces, besides it should impose military pressures and increase air raids on terrorist groups so they won’t be able to attack the Afghan security forces outposts and headquarters anymore.’ Afghanistan enjoys strong and professional security forces who can successfully ensure security of the country in very trying circumstances.
