Turning back Pak delegation plane raises questions, worsens Kabul-Islamabad relations

The turning back of the Pakist parliamentary delegation plane from the Kabul Airport on security grounds on Friday has generated too many questions and impacted the already deteriorating relations between the two neighbouring countries.

The plane returned to Islamabad within minutes, soon after it took off, and the Pakist Speaker secretariat shared news about "not allowing plane landing at Hamid Karzai International Airport by the Afghan government on security grounds," reported Afghstan Times.

Later a private Afghan television quoting airport security in-charge, said, they came to know about the dumping of explosive materials in a building adjacent to the airport. So far, no other information has been shared by any side.

The Pakist MP's delegation headed by Speaker National Assembly, Asad Qaisar was scheduled to visit Afghstan on the invitation of Speaker of Wolesi Jirga, Meer Rahman Rahm.

Besides others, the delegates had to meet President Dr Ashraf Gh and other high-ranking officials in Kabul, reported Afghstan Times.

No one can neglect the fact that compared to Pakistan, Afghstan deserves much more help and assistance as almost all of its sectors have been badly affected due to prolong imposed wars, external hostilities and meddling in its internal affairs from abroad.

Some foreign countries are trying to exploit Afghstan's compulsions for their nefarious designs.

Extremism and terrorism in certain parts of Afghstan is being sponsored, fuelled and promoted by some nations.

Pakistan is blamed for continued civilian strife, violence in Kabul as well as supporting terrorist orgsations like the Taliban and Al Qaeda.

In December last year, a series of videos had surfaced showing senior Taliban leaders meeting their followers and Taliban fighters in Pakistan.

In the videos, Taliban deputy leader Mullah Abdul Gh Baradar, the head of the Taliban political office, was seen holding a briefing with the Taliban cadre on the Afghstan peace negotiations and acknowledging the presence of the Taliban's top leadership in Pakistan.

In December, former Pakistan senator Afrasiab Khattak said Pakistan is using the Taliban as a "tool" for its dominance in Afghstan under the pretext of strategic depth.

The peace negotiations between Kabul and the Taliban began in the Qatari capital of Doha back in September. In early December, Kabul and the Taliban announced that they had agreed on the framework of the talks, allowing for discussions to now be held on substantive issues. Little progress, however, has so far been made since then.
