Govt asked to approach UN for end to war

Govt asked to approach UN for end to war

Oct 03, 2011 - 15:51

KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): Afghanistaninfo-icon Research and Advisory Centre (ARAC) officials on Monday said the government needed to hold a gathering of tribal elders, religious scholars and parliamentarians to fashion its response to the current situation.

Tensions between US and Pakistani governments and differences among Afghans on the peace process have created a political crisis in the country, ARAC head Ghulam Jilani Zwak told reporters.

It would be difficult for the government to stake out its stance without consultations with important elders and national figures, he said, adding the idea was floated by political analysts at a discussion. 

Pakistaninfo-icon and American officials started trading harsh statements in the wake of a rebel attack on the US embassy, the ISAFinfo-icon compound, National Directorate of Security (NDSinfo-icon) office and other institutions in Kabul in mid-September.

"The US stance once again shows that insurgent safe havens are not in Afghanistan. The government, therefore, should ask the UN Security Council to stop the war on Afghan soil and dismantle militant sanctuaries, wherever they are," he said.

Zwak believed the Afghan government should have an independent position, unaffected by the testy exchanges between Islamabad and Washington. Keeping in mind core national interests, the government should adopt a clear stance on the current situation, he added.
