    Pak warns against foreign meddling in Afghan affairs

    UNITED NATIONS: Pakistan has cautioned the international community against outside involvement in the war-torn Afghanistan, but said it must remain engaged with its government.


    “Non-intervention and non-interference in the internal affairs of Afghanistan, however, must be a cardinal element of this engagement.



    No regional or extra-regional state should be allowed to manipulate the situation,” Pakistan’s UN Ambassador Abdullah Hussain Haroon told the Security Council during a debate on the situation in Afghanistan on Thursday.

    “The long-term objectives of peace, stability and development in Afghanistan can be realised only by respecting its sovereignty, independence, unity and territorial integrity.”

    He said that Pakistan had vital stakes in the viability of Afghanistan, since in the history of human conflict, no neighbour of another country had suffered more than Pakistan from the consequences of conflict and human tragedy in Afghanistan.

    “In their progress we see our progress and in their woes we see our woes,” the Pakistani envoy said.

    Applauding UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s latest report in many areas, the ambassador said the insurgency needed to be eliminated as a priority, without seeking to externalise the problem. In addition, political reform must address the root causes of the insurgency.

    Mr Haroon extended Pakistan’s full support to President Hamid Karzai’s agenda, as articulated in his inaugural speech, in which, among other elements, the Afghan leader vowed to fight corruption.

    He also supported the continuing role of the United Nations’ Assistance Mission in Afghanistan, including its plans to open provincial offices.

    Pakistan was committed to further strengthening friendly ties with Afghanistan, in the spirit of the Joint Declaration signed in 2009, he said, noting that his country’s assistance package for Afghanistan was the biggest cooperation programme Islamabad had with any country and included elaborate human resource development programmes.

    Afghanistan was also Pakistan’s third largest trading partner, he said, adding that the two countries also had security and intelligence cooperation.

    He looked forward to the upcoming conference on international cooperation on Afghanistan in London, while reiterating his cautions over international involvement in the country.

    The ambassador supported the voluntary and dignified return of over three million Afghan refugees in Pakistan, and stressed the need for sustained efforts at creating the necessary “pull-factors” in Afghanistan, including re-integration programmes within the development strategy, which required international support.

    In general, he said, the milestone of a decade of international engagement with Afghanistan that was nearing completion called for a genuine reappraisal.

    GoP is used to bullying it's way around Afghanistan's internal issues because there is a deeply seated belief that Afghanistan is no more than a part of Greater Pakistan. This especially came true after the fall of E. Pakistan. They did everything they could to envelope it slowly by carefully planting the Taliban in power, now that the fun is over it's like a baby who got his candy taken away. My sincere hope is that Pakistan will start looking inward a lot more and adopt a more diplomatic approach to Afghanistan's problems by working with India as well. Afghanistan's future involves India and Pakistan has to get over it. If GoP don't get over it, it will continue to isolate Pakistan from the mainstream as now the whole world knows who exactly was behind years of strife, civil war and genocide in Afghanistan post Soviet withdrawal.

    what stupid comments, i seems nobody has bothered to read the arcticle. the following quotation says all

    are you sure you are pakistani from your comments esp the use of word "they" it seems like u r indian pretending to be a a pakistani

    and your comments on greater pakistan, you should not compare indians with pakistanis, indians think about akhand bharat but its not with pakistanis.

    pakistan has the highest pushtun population after afghanistan and pushtuns are the ruling class of afghanistan which means that pakistan shares some thing which is very important related to afghanistan. we have lots of trades between us and as afghanistan is landlocked it is very much dependent on pakistan. after the invasion of communism in afghanistan, pakistan has recieved loads of afghan refugees and thats why pakistan and afghanistn share deep relations and in the same way their fates are intertwined. if afghanistan suffers instability pakistan also suffers. this is the sole meaning of this article.

    recently the afghanistan foreign minister has revealed that terrorist attacks in pakistan are being planned in afghan soil.

    its not because of bollywood films that many afghanis speak urdu but its because of pakistan that many afghanis speak urdu, that fact shows the pakistani influence in afghanistan. hamid kerzai the president of afghanistan was residing in karachi pakistan, and he owns a bunglow here.

    Yes, this dodo is right - what Afghanistan today is because of his pureland not by some extolling bollywood. Lord save the world from this pureland.

    On Indian in Afghanistan, why hide? Yes we are in Afghanistan doing all what is in Indian supreme interest. As in the words of one western commentator - "Having visited the Indian mission, I can assure you they are not issuing visas as the main activity" .

    My rejoinder to this is that - Purelanders needs to teach the real meaning of "bleeding with thousand cuts'', as next time they try to put this in use on India, they sh!t there pants.

    Pak knows that after the seperation from east pakistan its country has become smaller. Pak started helping the mujahideens against soviet hoping that they will have control in afghanisthan after the war. these mujahideens seperated into different groups after the war and were fighting amongst themselves. thats when pakistan created the taliban to control afghanisthan and were successful in it. rest is history...

    so in such a scenario , pakistan blabbering and warning against foreign interference in afghanisthan is absurd when they are the ones who interfered in afghanisthan all these years. currently the pak ISI is targetting indian consulates and establishment in fear of indians gaining control of afghan.

    So who was and is interfering now???

    India is helping rebuild a country that you considered your playground and tore it apart. And now you have a problem with it. You pakistanis stop interfering before warning others.

    Dear Mech-e

    Salam first of all to you

    my friend Now we know who has been deraling A'stan for quite some time now
    India Has been from the start a Good friend of Afghanistan for many years now
    India has been successfully helping Afghanistan to Get back on its Knees show me one shred of evidence that we have been doing otherwise to Date India has poured more than USD 650-750 million in humanitarian and economic aid, making it the largest regional provider of aid for Afghanistan on the other hand Your country has been the largest desatblizer of afghanistan

    Three MoUs (memorandum of understanding) for strengthening cooperation in the fields of rural development, education and standardization between the Bureau of Indian Standards(BIS) and Afghan National Standardization Authority were signed between India and Afghanistan

    India's support and collaboration extends to rebuilding of air links, power plants and investing in health and education sectors as well as helping to train Afghan civil servants, diplomats and police. India also seeks the development of supply lines of electricity, oil and natural gas.

    Pakistan should first stop meddling in Afghan affairs before asking others to do so. Its like pot calling kettle black.

    Pakistan should first get rid of Afghan Taliban if they really want peace in Afghanistan. Instead, they are trying to protect Afghan taliban to no end in order to use them in future when US/NATo vacates the Afghanistan.

    Yeah I'm Pakistani, "they" refers to "GoP" which I am not a part of.
    Many nations have such dreams and visions, the difference is in how they are implemented.

    Pashtuns aren't the ruling class in a country which is heavily divided among ethnic lines, in fact they are pariahs in their own country for the most part because they have been used for ethnic cleansing in Afghanistan by GoP.

    1. a few Indians might nurse dreams of Akhand Bharat, but I don't see India "re-unifying" with anyone.
    2. Similar analogy - A Punjabi is the Indian PM and Punjabis are in majority in Pakistan, so ?
    3. Afghanistan is a landlocked country bordering IRAN etc.
    4. Afghan refugees are not necessarily pleased with the Pakistani hospitality shown to them in the camps.
    5. Since eons Karzai has blamed Pak for plotting attacks in the region, that counts for nothing ?
    6. Pakistanis speak urdu because ? and this shows Indian influence right ?
    7. Karzai did his studies in India.
