Pakistan is main factor of instability in Afghanistan: Sibghatullah Mojaddedi

Kabul: Sibghatullah Mojaddedi, former President of Afghanistan who ruled the Afghanistan as Interim President after the fall of Mohammad Najibullah’s government in 1992 blamed Pakistan that the main factor of the instability in Afghanistan is Pakistan. According to Khamma News Sibghatullah Mojaddedi said Pakistan is behind the Taliban, they cross border by the name of Taliban but in fact they are Pakistanis. If Islamabad does not end its interference in Afghanistan it would suffer the fate of Kabul, Mojaddedi threatened Khamma Press reported.

But at the same time Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Abdullah Abdullah has called on Taliban to come to negotiation table saying that they can’t reach to their hopes through war. While talking to a gathering organized to celebrate the withdrawal of Red Army from Afghanistan, CEO Abdullah said the National Unity Government (NUG) has been trying to reach to a durable peace in Afghanistan. He said if Taliban have a concept or ideology they need to come and talk as they cannot get anything with killing and violence.

Analysts say that the blame from former president comes on the occasion when Pakistan is trying honestly to bring Afghan Taliban to the negotiation table and find a solution for Afghan war. But looking at the breach of trust by Islamabad in the past, some high ranking government officials including Ahmad Zia Masoud, special envoy to the President for reform and good governance, and political analyzers still doubt the role of Pakistan. They say that Islamabad would bring one group to the negotiation table and find a room for it in the government while another group would continue the bloodshed.
