Afghanistan

Corruption in Afghanistan is a widespread and growing problem in Afghan society. Afghanistan ranks 169 of 176 in Transparency International’s 2016 Corruption Perceptions Index. Corruption is consistently singled out as a problem in the war-hit country. It is a fact that society remained riddled with corruption.

 

Officials in the southern province of Kandahar reported of conflict between Afghan and Pakistani troops in the border area. The Pakistani soldiers entered Afghan soil Friday morning, according to the provincial spokesman, opening fire at the Afghan border guards in the Loqman and Nazar villages of the border district of Spin Boldak.

 

The Afghan masses believe that peace is possible, if the conflict party believes in it. In conflict areas worldwide local people are building peace. Stopping violence, saving lives, and healing shattered communities.

 

The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), but in Afghanistan it is very famous by its Arabic language acronym Daesh.

 

Conditions for press freedom in the country have been improved unprecedentedly during 16 years.

 

Over two years after the drawdown of foreign troops, a group of about 300 US Marines has returned to the ballet-weary southern province of the country.

 

Russia’s growing interest in Afghan affairs is apparent from Moscow’s hosting of peace talks. The recent talks on ‘peace in Afghanistan’ were held in Moscow in the middle of April.

 

Does Afghanistan really trapped between two atrocities—first, the Taliban insurgents, who freshly killed over 140 Afghan soldiers, and, second the Islamic State (IS), aka Daesh militants, who recently killed, and wounded over 100 people in 400-bed military hospital in Kabul.

Do our security institutions have been failed on many counts? Let’s not forget that Afghanistan is in the throes of a multidimensional war, with new tactics.
