    Afghan president Ashraf Ghani slams Pakistan over recent Kabul attacks

    KABUL: Afghan president Ashraf Ghani lambasted neighbouring Pakistan today over a recent wave of insurgent attacks in the capital Kabul that killed at least 56 people.

    "The last few days have shown that suicide bomber training camps and bomb-producing factories which are killing our people are as active as before in Pakistan," Ghani told a news conference.

    "We hoped for peace but we are receiving messages of war from Pakistan."


    Pakistan has historically supported the Taliban insurgents and many Afghans accuse it of nurturing militant sanctuaries on its soil in the hope of maintaining influence in Afghanistan.

    Since coming to power last year Ghani has courted the Pakistanis, expending substantial domestic political capital in the process, in hopes Islamabad will persuade the Taliban to come to the negotiating table.

    But his comments today are the strongest yet against the neighbouring country.

    "In my telephone call with Pakistan prime minister (on Sunday), I told Pakistan to see terrorism in Afghanistan the same way it sees terrorism in Pakistan," he said, referring to prime minister Nawaz Sharif.

    I ask the Pakistani government if the mass killings of Shah Shaheed had happened in Islamabad and the perpetrators were in Afghanistan, what would you do?" he said, referring to a Kabul neighbourhood that suffered a fatal truck bombing on Friday.

    At least five people were killed today when a Taliban suicide car bomber struck near the entrance of Kabul's international airport.

    The attack follows a barrage of deadly bombings in the Afghan capital on Friday, which struck close to an army complex, a police academy and a US special forces base and killed at least 51 people.

    I think it was our failure that we couldn't take them into confidence of our role and on top US was also silent with China backing pakis and promising investment in afg, but this wrong step has undone a lot of good work over the last few years. His reaction was bound to come as pakis apni fitrat dikhane me time nahin lagate. They have taken him for a ride and shown whats in store for the afghans.

    Pakis hate afghans and it was a big mistake on Ghani to trust these snakes.

    Ghani followed a pragmatic approach. Sadly he didn't learn from history to see that his predecessor had also tried the same. But you can't really blame him for trying. The Pakis can only be tamed with a danda.

    What's interesting to note is that Pakistani media, unlike the Indian one, does not aid the state and spout state owned propaganda through its private channels. The Indian media is far more supportive of warmongering and blood-letting in fact, its more fanatic than the state itself at times which won't come as a surprise when you get to know the owners of some private owned channels. Secondly, the taliban phenomenon was primarily supported by the US as proxies so a country does not become a rogue state for even aiding them unless they turn on the Americans. The US is also supporting warlords in countries like Somalia against Al Shabab and even that will soon bite them back but there would never be any mentioning of labels such as a "rogue state" and the like. Blind jingoism is just as lethally vacuous as religious fanaticism so if Pakistani media is held up by many as a source for absurd claims to further breed irrational paranoia in an already hostile population and has a fair amount of educated supporters to do the dirty work then its quite unfortunate though least surprising.

    Assuming you believe in what has been written above.

    The longer you keep living in this dream, india has its job cut out. Why bother with covert stuff, when people of bakistan is hell bent on shooting into their own foot. What you guys are doing to yourself is cheaper and more effective than what india can possibly think of doing. We just need to sit back relax and enjoy the show.

    Pakistan, Afghanistan agree to end ‘blame game’: Sartaj Aziz
    Reuters

    ISLAMABAD: Pakistan and Afghanistan have agreed to end a blame game over a spate of attacks and work to restore trust, Pakistan's Foreign Policy Chief Sartaj Aziz said Saturday.

    The foreign affairs adviser to the prime minister, visited the Afghan capital Kabul on Friday for a regional economic conference and also held meetings with the president, foreign minister and national security adviser.

    Afghan President Ashraf Ghani made closer ties with Pakistan a priority when he took office last year, hoping Islamabad could push Afghan Taliban leaders to the bargaining table to end Afghanistan's long war.

    The relationship appeared to yield fruit in July with groundbreaking official peace talks with the militants. But after confirmation of the death of group's founder Mullah Mohammad Omar, the process was suspended and the Taliban launched a wave of attacks in Kabul, killing more than 50 people.

    “The main thing that we both agreed upon was to restore trust, end the blame game against each other and create a positive atmosphere,” Aziz said in comments broadcast on state television on Saturday about his meeting with Ghani.

    “We will work on establishing a memorandum of trust building to avoid such a situation in the future.”

    Afghanistan has not publicly commented on the talks.

    Aziz also confirmed that the Afghan finance minister would visit Pakistan in the first week of November to attend a meeting of a joint economic commission to discuss and expand trade ties.

    Afghanistan and Pakistan accuse each other of doing too little to prevent Taliban fighters and other Islamist militants from operating on their territory.

    In August, the Pakistan army's press wing said four soldiers were killed and four wounded by mortars fired across the Afghan border in the Akhandwala Pass.

    In the same month, Pakistan summoned Afghan Ambassador Janan Mosazai twice in a week to complain about border violations.

    Afghanistan's intelligence service also said a Pakistani intelligence officer helped the Taliban carry out an attack on parliament in June.

    Afghanistan has accused Pakistan of not doing enough to arrest Afghan Taliban leaders who have been meeting to decide on a successor to Mohammad Omar. Islamabad insists any such meetings are held in Afghanistan.

    Afghan officials have long accused Pakistan of tolerating or even supporting the Afghan Taliban, a charge denied by Pakistan.

    An Afghan delegation to Pakistan last month led by Foreign Minister Salahuddin Rabbani demanded “serious and practical measures” from Islamabad over militant attacks it said came from across the border.

    Pakistan offered three options to Afghanistan, Afghan sources have told Reuters, including expelling Taliban-linked militants into Afghan territory, and trying to restart peace talks.
