Kabul (BNA) A political activist in Pakistan says since some days ago, the army of that country is arresting the youths and civil society activists   in tribal regions.
Afrasyab Khatak a political activist in Khaiber Pashtun Khaw state has said that Pakistani army has proceeded to arrest the people and youths who complain and seriously criticize the improper and discriminative dealing and acting in tribal areas.
Khatak says that tribal youths and civil society activists in area have repeatedly said that Pakistan army is not seeking to fight against terrorism but they follow specific goals in the region which has never been to the public interests but create ethnical problems in tribal areas.
Mr. Khatak claims that the federal government has imposed restrictions on political activities in tribal areas  and using different pretexts has tried to silent the voice of people there.
According to Mr. Khatak the army in pretext of checking and pursuing terrorists inters the houses of people and arrests tribal youths. He added, in reality the presence of army in tribal regions is not for fighting terrorism but for supporting them.
The army in tribal areas is supporting specific groups carrying out their terrorist activities under the name of Taliban, while they kill tribal dignitaries and commit hundreds other crimes. In the meantime, destabilizing the situation there, provides the ground for migration of the residents of the area to other parts of the country aiming to confront them with other Pakistani ethnic groups especially Sindhi, Qawm –I – Mahajer (migrated ethnical group) and Balochs. 
Also, Pakistani government in an earlier designed program tries to prevent the progress of tribal areas, as currently the area is the most underdeveloped region in Pakistan.

Kabul (BNA) An official source of  MoFA: Iranian Government refused to complete the Procedure of Investigation into the incident of attacking the Saudi Diplomatic Missions.
An official source at the Saudi Ministry of Foreign Affairs explained that Iranian authorities have persistently and consistently stalled and refused to resume investigations into the incident of storming the embassy of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in Tehran and its consulate in Mashhad, even though these attacks were perpetrated a year and a half ago. Iranian authorities have also resorted to blackmail in order to gain diplomatic privileges inside the Kingdom in spite of severing the diplomatic ties between Saudi Arabia and Iran.
The source added that Iranian authorities have resorted to fraudulent tactics. Iran, despite an initial approval, has denied a Saudi team entry into Iran as part of the Iranian team investigating the attacks on the Saudi Arabian embassy in Tehran and its consulate in Mashhad. The Saudi team was delegated to work alongside the Iranian authorities to inspect the two Saudi facilities and finalize the processes relating to them.
The source further indicated that such acts of procrastination reflect Iran’s behavior and policy, its disrespect of international laws and conventions, and violation of the inviolability of the diplomatic mission premises, tactics Iran had used for more than 38 years. The official source emphasized the fact that in light of the aforementioned particulars, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia sees it vital to present these facts to the international organizations and take all necessary measures in order to safeguard its diplomatic rights in line with Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations and relevant provisions of international law.
