Regional conferences should consider Afghanistan’s key role, people’s will

Any regional discussion on peace and situation of Afghanistan should be with pivotal of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan otherwise such programs for settling Afghan problem which is regional problem would not be practical.
BNA political analyst commenting on the issue writes recently Russia has declared that in early September of this year a regional session on settling Afghan crisis would be held in Moscow.
In addition to Afghanistan, from Iran, India, Pakistan, China and representative of Taliban have been invited to take part in the session. US arguing that holding such sessions in the past, have not succeeded to settle the Afghan problem and rejected participation in the session.
The foreign ministry of Afghanistan calling the participation of Taliban at Moscow session meaningless has said that it would not attend at session too. Non – participation of Afghan government at Moscow session has many reasons that should be focused on them:
First, Moscow session is being held with participation of the representatives of many states, while Taliban as militant group is fighting against elected Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, the government which has diplomatic relation with Moscow and Islamabad and internationally recognized as a legitimate state. On the other hand, Taliban have repeatedly rejected the call of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan for direct talks and denied all global principles and criteria for settling the disputes. Participation of such a group in regional session where the delegates of states participate, how could be justified?
Taliban reject direct talks with Afghan government but positively respond to the call of Russian government, in addition the group since Eid al-Fitrhas met US delegates four times.
Participation of Taliban’s representatives in Moscow session and their constant talks with Americans indicates that the group is seeking to find a proper place in rivalries of Russia and US, the rivalries continuing in geography of Afghanistan. Therefore, it would be the obligation of every Afghan to keep away their country from these heinous games and rivalries, while the contacts of Taliban with US and Russia will increase the rivalries between the two countries in Afghanistan which will be disastrous for Afghan nation.
The decision of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan on not participating at Moscow session is a wise decision, because Afghanistan on relation between states and cannot sit at negotiation table with a group has no a definition from national interests and prefer personal and foreign interests to national interests.
It would be better the friendly countries of Afghanistan such as Russia, Iran, China, Turkey or Qatar should think about the improvement of situation of Afghanistan. The countries that cry slogans for restoring stability in the region, instead supporting Taliban politically, considering the values of Afghan constitution encourage Taliban to become ready for inter- Afghan talks.
Otherwise, they should know that Islamic Republic of Afghanistan not consider itself responsible for accepting the decisions of the sessions where the role of Afghan government and the will of Afghan people is ignored.
