Terrorism main threat to Afghanistan peace: Khurshid

Jul 2 2013, 10:00am CDT | by

Brunei, July 2 (IANS) India said Tuesday that terrorism poses the main threat to peace and stability in Afghanistan, and securing it is in the interest of all ASEAN Regional Forum (ARF) countries and the international community.

Brunei, July 2 — India said Tuesday that terrorism poses the main threat to peace and stability in Afghanistan, and securing it is in the interest of all ASEAN Regional Forum (ARF) countries and the international community.

Indian External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid, at the 20th ASEAN Regional Forum (ARF) meeting in Brunei Darussalam, said there was "need for joint and concerted efforts to dismantle terrorist sanctuaries and safe havens beyond Afghan borders and disrupt all financial and tactical support for terrorism".

"We must assist Afghanistan in its efforts to become a stable, democratic and pluralistic state," he stressed.

He said India "supports the efforts made by the Afghan government to establish a peaceful dialogue with all armed opposition groups".

"But this process must be a broad based Afghan-led, Afghan-owned reconciliation process, within the framework of the Afghan Constitution and internationally accepted red lines. This dialogue must involve all sections of the Afghan society and armed opposition groups, including the Taliban," said Khurshid.

The US has invited the Taliban to participate in peace talks in Qatar. Afghan President Hamid Karzai, after initially refusing, has agreed to participate in the talks, provided the insurgent group abides by laid down conditions.

Khurshid also said the reconciliation process "must not undermine the legitimacy of the Afghan state and government and the political, social and economic progress witnessed in Afghanistan over the past decade, to which members of the international community have contributed in great measure."

"I may emphasise here that India's Afghanistan policy does not have an exit policy. India has played an important role in the reconstruction and rehabilitation of Afghanistan."

Khurshid proposed that the 27 members of the ARF community should enhance cooperation by pooling their information and resources, "not only to prevent terrorist attacks but also to apprehend and bring terrorists to justice and so demonstrate our commitment to combat terror".

He also voiced India's deep concern over the clandestine proliferation of Weapons of Mass Destruction technologies and stressed on the safety and security of sea lanes of communication.

Ferguson's Overlooked Ties to the War on Drugs

Aug 23 2014 5:52am CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

Like many people across the country, I've been glued to the TV as tragic events have unfolded in Ferguson, MO. In the aftermath of Michael Brown's death, violent clashes have erupted between Ferguson's citizens and its law enforcement. As tensions escalated, many Americans have been shocked to see police dressed in army gear, wielding M-16s and other weaponry that seems straight out of Iraq or Afghanistan. Police in Ferguson have a duty to protect public safety, but ...
