HERAT CITY (Pajhwok): The 5th Herat Security Dialogue (HSD-V) began under the title of ‘Violence and Political System’, hosted by the Afghan Institute for Strategic Studies (AISS) here on Friday, an official said.

Dawood Moradyan, AISS head, said the 5th HSD conference was aimed at enhanced efforts for evolving intellectual and political consensus on finding solutions to Afghanistan’s problems, especially in the security sphere.

He told Pajhwok Afghan News intellectual and political consensus was a precondition for regional cooperation. He said HSD was attended by 120 high-ranking figures and 20 other experts from regional countries.

This year’s dialogue was aimed to discuss the ‘Violence and Political System’. Political problems facing Afghanistaninfo-icon would also be discussed at the two-day special conference.

Mohammad Asif Rahimi, the Herat governor, was the first speaker. He said such conferences aimed at assessing current issues, improving ties and building confidence among countries could pave the cooperation on security and other issues.

The governor, pointing to Herat's development and reconstruction over the past one year, said the province had the capacity of attracting foreign entrepreneurs.

About interference from neighbouring countries in Afghanistan’s security affairs, he said: “Those fuelling insecurity in Afghanistan to further their petty personal interests should know that their nefarious designs would no longer succeed. Any attempt at destabilising Afghanistan will have bad consequences for the elements involved.”     

Rahimi asked representatives from various countries to support Afghanistan’s quest for peace.

The Herat Security Dialogue (HSD) is an annual conference, held by the Afghan Institute for Strategic Studies (AISS). It is attended by government officials, international organisation delegates, legislators, academics, journalists, businessmen, and civil society representatives.
