Spanta: Majority of Afghans’ Outlook on Current Situation Remains Bleak

(Last Updated On: November 13, 2015)


Former National Security Adviser, Rangin Dad Far Spanta says that the vast majority of Afghan people are tired of the continuation of the current situation.

Dr. Spanta in an exclusive interview with Ariananews noted that Afghans do not consider the continuation of current situation based on national interest of government, law and Afghanistan; citing efforts are underway to create social justice movement, democracy and restore the rule of law in Afghanistan on the basis of a program.

He declared that there was fierce competition between Iran and America in Afghanistan and we tried to get Afghanistan out of competition scene and change it to cooperation between these countries.

On the sidelines of his talks, Dr. Spanta added that the current government formed based on an agreement and a legal Loya Jirga should be held before the completion of two years; otherwise the people obliged to hold a peaceful Jirga.

The former National Secuerity Adviser stressed that the United States is a strategic partner with Afghanistan. Signing security accord with America was a perfect measure that we support it and we need the cooperation of United States.

This comes as that over a year passed after the formation of a national unity government by President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani and Chief Executive Officer Abdullah Abdullah, Afghans say they are disappointed by the administration’s performance.

Unity Government leaders must take steps to avoid scenarios that mirror the instability witnessed in Iraq wherein the state was fragmented along ethnic lines — in Afghanistan ethnic divisions could lead to the strengthening of the Taliban and other extremist groups such as ISIS.
