National reconciliation policy in Afghanistan falls short
Moscow: The national reconciliation
policy of Afghan authorities and attempts to re-integrate
Taliban members in the society have failed to bring expected
results, members of a working group at the Collective Security
Treaty Organisation have said.
"The national reconciliation policy of Afghan authorities
and Taliban re-integration attempts taken against the backdrop
of gradual transfer of security functions to Afghan law
enforcers and foreign troops` pullout have not reached desired
results," they said yesterday.
The working group members noted the complex situation and
mounting instability in Afghanistan. "An enlargement of the
foreign military force in Afghanistan and joint operations
with Afghan policemen have not reduced the amount of drug
trafficking or the threat of terrorism and extremism,"
CSTO Secretary General Nikolai Bordyuzha said.
"The ongoing production and trafficking of narcotic drugs
in Afghanistan have a negative effect on the entire Central
Asia and far beyond that region. In fact, they endanger
international peace and security," he said.
The working group stressed the importance of CSTO efforts
on the Afghan track and in the suppression of security threats
coming from Afghanistan. The group also accentuated the need
for interaction with other international organisations
providing international and regional security.
The CSTO position in the assistance to stabilisation in
Afghanistan will be discussed at an international conference
in Kabul on July 20, 2010.
The CSTO unites Russia, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan,
Tajikistan, Belarus, Armenia and Kyrgyzstan.
