Govt foreign policy toward Pakistan slammed as a failure

Aug 13, 2015 - 18:17

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The Civil Movement for Social Justice (CMSJ) on Thursday said the government has failed to devise an effective foreign policy to deal with Pakistaninfo-icon.

The CMSJ went on to an extent by saying that the government had faced defeat on military, economic and social fronts.

The Afghan government in the past decade has tried to have cordial relations with Pakistan in order to gain its support for Afghan peace process.

But not only former president Hamid Karzai’s efforts yielded no fruits, now the incumbent President Ashraf Ghani’s efforts in the past ten months have also been in vain.

Ghani has recently said that Pakistan did not only take practical steps with regards to peace process in Afghanistaninfo-icon, but the insurgents still sent messages of war from Pakistani soil.

He said last two month’s incidents showed that training camps for suicide attackers and bomb-making factories used against Afghan people were still active on the other side of Durand Lineinfo-icon.

The government today sent a high-ranking delegation to Islamabad to raise the concerns with Pakistani officials.

Ahmad Zaki, head of CMSJ, told journalists in Kabul Afghan government has failed in its foreign policy towards Pakistan and expressed this political defeat after wasting ten months.

He added the government wanted to hide its inefficiency with regard to security by blaming Pakistan for all the insecurity.

“Existence of fifth pillar inside the government gave them the opportunity to use government resources against our national interest and by creating impediment and propaganda they are behind collapse of the government,” he added.

Zaki said rampant corruption in government and security institutions has given the enemy an opportunity to infiltrate in the ranks of security forces through some corrupt officials.

He stressed the government should have clear programmes in order to gain people’s trust by ensuring security and fighting corruption.
