Kabul (BNA) President of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan considers free transit in to the interest of the countries of the region and asked the countries not use transit roads as political means.
BNA financial affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes Mohammad Ashraf
Ghani president of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan recently in an occasion of celebrating the first sending exporting commercial goods of Afghanistan in to China and asked the neighboring countries to dare like Afghanistan and open transit roads.
Afghan president considers free transit in to the interest of the countries of the region and asks those countries not to change transit roads as a political means.
Although, Afghan president has not determined the countries of the region that have used transit roads as a political means but earlier Pakistan an extensive and systematic style and Iran in limited style have violated the transit rights of  Afghanistan which is a land- locked  country. Beside transit and trade even they have used, emigrants issue as a political means for obtaining their illegal interests.
Pakistan always and some other countries occasionally have used transit as a means of pressure against the Afghan government and we have been witness of closure of transit roads if there emerged tension between Afghanistan and those countries or political demands of them caused the closure of transit roads and stopping the commercial goods of Afghanistan.
Afghanistan during the last year has tried its best using the current opportunities to draw the attention of those countries to cooperate in commercial field that is in to the benefit of the region, unfortunately, Pakistan has not responded positively, but contrary to that has tried to impose its illegal demands on Afghanistan which is suffering from fighting terrorism and extremism.
Pakistan has not only created problems on exporting and importing goods of Afghanistan via Karachi and Guader ports, but openly tried to prevent from the developing trade between India and Afghanistan.
Although Pakistan signing several cooperation, commercial and transit agreements with Afghanistan has officially recognized the transit right of Afghanistan but never been committed in to its commitments.
Beside that Afghanistan and Pakistan are the members of SAARC and ECO which have been established for long term regional convergent and economic cooperation and removing the challenges of transit are their major objectives unfortunate Pakistan ignoring these humanitarian goals and objectives persistently violates them.
The Pakistan moves and behavior are a heinous message for trade and economic growth of the region in short and long- terms. Many believe Pakistan following such policy will sustain heavy losses as previous experiences show.
Afghanistan is trying to use the current opportunities for the interests of regional trade development and this noble aim achieves only when the other countries particularly Pakistan not use trade and transit roads as a political means for achieving its satanic objectives.
