Afghanistan

Donald Trump pledged his support to the American troops at Afghanistan’s Bagram Airfield when he spoke to them via live link shortly after he took oath as the 45th US President on January 20.

 

THE return of Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, perhaps, the most notorious Afghan warlord, may significantly influence power dynamics in war-torn Afghanistan, initiating a new alignment of political forces and provoking old rivalries.

Resilience of Afghan people is like a broad-day light. It is matchless, and a precedent for many violence-hit countries to follow.

 

Afghanistan is heavily dependent on foreign assistance. Four decades ago, the country was abode of peace and stability. The heydays are long gone. Interference of neighboring countries and a few major countries have destabilized Afghanistan.

 

Eastern Nangarhar province badly suffers from the continuing chain of terrorist attacks carried out by notorious global terror outfit, Daesh which is also known as ISIS. Daesh is thought to be a project of Pakistan to destabilize Afghanistan. 

 

In a country suffered by three decades of war, peace is a precious commodity. Unfortunately, here in Afghanistan where an entire generation has been pushed into the unending cycle of violence, conflict and political plus economic instability, whatever peace remains is fragile.
