Many believe that large and influential parts of the Taliban insurgency are affiliated with Pakistan’s ISI. The group receives all orders from the country’s intelligence. The political and military Taliban are, in fact, the brutal and bloody hands of the ISI, Which has been reaching out to Afghanistan for years and taking victims from the people every day.
A high-ranking Taliban delegation traveled to Pakistan after a 22-day peace talks. During the trip, they met and consulted with officials, including the foreign minister. Following these meetings, the Pakistani Foreign Minister stated that the violence inside Afghanistan should not be attributed only to the Taliban, but that both sides should end the violence.
But the fundamental question is whether the political destiny of Afghanistan, especially the issue of war and peace, will be decided by Pakistan?
If Pakistan plays a major role in the next round of talks and the international community, especially the United States, supports this policy, can the supporters of the republican system resist or not?
Many insiders believe that most of the Taliban are influential in Pakistan’s ISI. Takes all orders from the country’s intelligence, Very few parts of this group depend on other countries in the region.
Without the support of the Pakistani military, the Taliban is not a figure to stand against the government and people of Afghanistan and global pressures.
The Taliban insurgents’ inspiration from the ISI is not new, but Pakistan is the source of the group. In 1994, for the first time, three people entered Kandahar from Pakistan through Spin Boldak. These were the 500 people who laid the foundation of the five-year Taliban government in Afghanistan.
If today the Taliban delegation is going to Pakistan in a hurry during the two-day break, it is because it has no authority other than Pakistan. To put it more bluntly, all of the Taliban’s military and political capabilities owe much to Pakistan and the United States under Trump.
The Afghan government is not in conflict with the Taliban today. Rather, it is involved with a group that receives political support from the United States and military support from Pakistan.
The Taliban, backed by Pakistan, will continue their violence until the current government falls and a transitional government is formed. But the only way for the government is to prolong the talks under various pretexts until the end of the five-year period.
The game that started in Afghanistan after the Doha agreement is more dangerous and complicated than before. Conflicts of interest that escalated in the wake of the peace talks have made Mr. Ghani’s government more troubled than ever.
