ZIARAT:  This region, particularly the Pakhtun-Baloch belt is once again in the eyes of the storm due to the emerging international political order, the realignment of powers, and their conflicting interests. This situation warrants extraordinary vigilance on the part of political forces, especially of the security establishment of Pakistan. This time there is little or no room for mistakes and blunders, Mahmood Khan Achakzai warned while addressing the district conference of the Pakhtunkhwa Milli Awami Party in Ziarat of Balochistan province.

The region already suffered enough because of world powers’ rivalries and their contestation for resources and hegemony. For more than forty years, Afghanistan had been turned into a battleground of proxy wars which almost destroyed everything there but the bloodshed is still going on both sides of the Durand Line, Achakzay reminded.

All political forces should put their heads together: Achakzai suggests

He called upon the workers of PkMAP and Baloch especially and all political forces and establishments that no force or ethnicity alone can turn around the looming storm and the situation demands a unified voice, Achakzai maintained.

Achakzai is hopeful that with the diplomatic efforts of China, the thaw between Iran and Saudi Arabia is a silver line in this regard as the cordial relations between these two Middle Eastern powers may have positive impacts on the stabilization of the Middle East as well as beyond.

He also advised that the process should be widened and asked Afghanistan that while using the good office of China, should demand the General Secretary of the United Nations to convene a special meeting of the Security Council on Afghanistan wherein the world powers provide a guarantee for ensuring the integrity and independence of Afghanistan.

Before blaming Afghanistan, the world should protect it from foreign interference and intervention. In return, a stable and independent Afghanistan can check the various forces of instability, he observed.
