It has been announced that on 04-05 October 2016, a conference will be held in the capital of Belgium, Brussels, where financial support will be pledged to the Kabul administration. It must be reminded that over the past decade and a half, several conferences concerning Afghanistan have taken place at the behest of occupying nations however these conferences have not benefited the Afghans in the least except for astronomically widening the gap between the rich and the poor. The money pledged in the name of our country at each conference has either gone to the pockets of foreign contractors or to their partners inside the country, failing completely at bringing any meaningful change into the lives of the ordinary citizens. It is also known to everyone that the Kabul administration has no constitutional legitimacy, where the parliament calls the government illegitimate and the government vice versa.
In reality the occupying countries – due to their colonial peculiarity – always seek to prolong their occupation and attain their colonial goals through such conferences. This is because they always give precedent to their interests over the wellbeing and welfare of the people.
If their goals truly are demands and advancement of the Afghan nation, they would have immediately decided on ending the occupation in the previous conferences or should do it in the current conference. Or they would have given conditional aid for state level economical, industrial, agricultural and other foundational development projects over the past decade and half so that Afghanistan could have become independent and stood on its own feet. However everyone knows that the invaders want an Afghanistan that is always dependent on them politically, economically and militarily. And another distressing part of these aid packages are that a large part of it is either embezzled by the corrupt officials or is used to destroy our beloved homeland and kill our ordinary countrymen.
In the opinion of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, if this conference is truly for the economic wellbeing of the Afghans, then it is the moral and ethical duty of the participants to decide on ending the occupation before all other matters. Withdraw your troops and killing machines from our beloved homeland. Stop oppressing, killing and bombing the miserable defenseless Afghans and forcing an illegitimate Kabul administration upon them.
