Commentary

Thursday, September 12, 2019

Maimana (BNA) From September attacks that killed almost three thousand people in United States 18 years passed, but US authorities say still the danger of attack on that country exists.
BNA political affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes  18 years ago on September 11, 2002 the US territory was the scene of  the most deathly terrorist attacks that the worst political, economic, security and military consequences for that country and badly affected Afghanistan and some other countries of the world.
On September 11, 2001 Al- Qaeda terrorist group carried out a series of terrorist attacks on US territory attacks the most horrible attacks were carried out on international trade towers that claimed the lives of 2977 people.
The attacks were carried out by 19 Arab origin men, shocked Americans, because they considered themselves unrivaled in the world after the collapse of Soviet Union in early 1990s. But the incidents of September 11 indicated that that country is facing Islamic movements and organizations that America called them terrorists and extremists.
Al- Qaida that carried out the attacks of September attacks, their lead Asama bin Laden lived in Afghanistan supported by Islamic Emirate of Taliban.
Islamic Emirate of Taliban that officially recognized by the three American allied countries (Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and United Arabic Emeries) avoid handing over Asama to America. This made America at head of an international counter terrorism coalition invaded Afghanistan to arrest Asama the designer of the attacks of September 11 and punish him. Finally, they found him in Pakistan in 2011 and killed him.
America since 2001 is fighting against terrorism and extremism calling it international mission against terrorism sustained heavy casualties and losses but Afghanistan has been the main victim of war against terrorism.

After the collapse of so called Islamic Emirates the leaders of the group and Al- Qaida leaders returned in to their hideout in Pakistan and again welcomed and supported by Pakistani and a number of Gulf countries intelligence services and again has  been causing sever pains and problems in Afghanistan and in the region.
The Afghans have lost their best sons in this heinous conflict, their economic infrastructure collapsed and this is the Afghans who are fighting against terrorism as world proxy.

Today America and the west are talking about revival of Al- Qaeda and express concern over carrying terrorist attacks on America and on its allies once again.
Afghans believe that until America not inter in to the war against terrorism honestly with a precise and practical program and not focus  on funding sources and the countries that equip  and support terrorists and if spend billions of dollars  will not achieve its objectives in war again terrorism.

Govt.’s Statement on 9/11 Anniversary

Thursday September 12, 2019
Kabul (BNA) The September 11, 2001 horrific and heinous attacks left a dark day in the history of the United States and the world, the Presidential Palace said in a statement. “On the day, the terrorist group of Al-Qaeda committed a horrific crime and launched a series of destructive terrorist attacks in the United States which claimed nearly 300 innocent lives, wounded thousands and left billions of dollars of loss to the American people,” the statement said. On the 18th anniversary of the 9/11 tragedy, President Ashraf Ghani stressed that, “The government of Afghanistan as a responsible member of the international community conveys its profound sympathies and empathies to the American government and nation as well as the families who lost their loved ones in the attack.
The tragedy of 9/11 took place when the Taliban regime had already gained ground in Afghanistan and had occupied a majority of the Afghan territory, turning it into a safe haven for the presence and operation of international terrorist networks, including Al-Qaeda and hosting Osama Bin Laden on its top, according to the statement. The government of Afghanistan with the support of the international community, at the top of that the United States, has been fighting on the front lines of the war on global terror alongside with the United States and other major allies and has been paying the ultimate sacrifices to defend the security of the region and the world in the past 18 years, the statement said. Afghanistan and the international community, however, face a common threat and the terrorist groups strive to once again turn Afghanistan into their safe haven and launch pad for terrorist attacks, the statement concluded.

UN Stresses Direct Afghan-Taliban Talks

Thursday September 12, 2019
Kabul (BNA) The U.N. envoy for Afghanistan said Tuesday it is imperative for direct talks between the Afghan government and the Taliban to start quickly, and he urged the militant Islamist group to retract its threat to disrupt the upcoming presidential election. Tadamichi Yamamoto told the Security Council that the events of recent days and weeks “have shown, more than ever, the urgency of finding a political settlement to the long Afghan conflict.” Yamamoto spoke three days after President Donald Trump abruptly halted U.S.-Taliban talks, citing an upsurge in attacks by the Islamic insurgent group. The cancellation put a spotlight on the Sept. 28 presidential election.
The U.N. envoy said opportunities for peace over the past year “created hope, but also fear for many,” and made clear that the conflict can only be resolved by direct talks involving “the whole spectrum of Afghan society.” “It is imperative therefore that direct talks between the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan and the Taliban commence as soon as possible,” Yamamoto said. He urged the parties to the conflict and all those interested in peace to keep working to bring about direct talks. Recent informal talks between the Taliban and representatives of Afghan society in Doha and Moscow addressed some key issues for peace, Yamamoto said. He expressed hope this would be carried forward and deepened.
Peace efforts must address and lead to a reduction in violence and an eventual cease-fire, he said. But, Yamamoto added, “Any political settlement must include a promise to continue to protect and advance human rights and fundamental freedoms for all who live in Afghanistan, including those of women, youth and minorities as well as the freedom of expression and the media.” Yamamoto said security, voter turnout and fraud are major challenges for the presidential election. While the Afghan government’s technical and operational preparations for the elections are on track, he said, “we still hear much anxiety expressed by Afghan citizens particularly in view of the Taliban’s stated threat to disrupt the electoral process, especially by targeting civilians participating in the elections.”
Stressing that attacks on voters and polling stations are “clear violations of international law,” Yamamoto urged the Taliban to withdraw its threat. And he urged the government to provide adequate security to safeguard the electoral process. Yamamoto said 9.6 million people have registered to vote, but turnout could be affected by security worries. “Credible elections would provide an important political foundation for the future of the country as well as legitimacy and authority to the elected president, which would be particularly important in view of the expected peace process,” he said.
