Pakistan’s prime minister travel to Kabul Thursday, last week. This trip was important for Afghanistan in a few views: First, Pakistan has a key role in Afghanistan’s peace and without Islamabad’s support, peace will not be achieved.
Second, trade and economic exchanges between the two countries help the economic growth and prosperity of both countries, especially Afghanistan. From this view, this trip is considered important in improving trade and transit between the two countries.
The third thing is that Pakistan has security concerns about Afghanistan, as last week, there was a speech about the plan to attack Afghanistan’s soil by Indian intelligence against Pakistan’s interests in Pakistani media, and high-ranking Pakistani officials also emphasized it. This also was discussed between both sides so that the space of trust gives its place to good coherence, trust and mutual respect.
The final point is that the media has recently spoken about India’s militia. This has become a concern for Afghanistan and Pakistan. In this trip, there was also a discussion about militia threats for the future of Afghanistan.
The best policy for Afghanistan is a stress and trust-building approach to attract the attention of neighbors, especially Pakistan, to support the peace process in the current sensitive situation.
