Peace remains a distant dream in Afghanistan
 In a country ravaged by four decades of war, peace is a precious desire. Here in Afghanistan, where an entire generation has know nothing but conflict, violence and instability, whatever peace remains is fragile.
A daily victim of terrorism with regional and transnational roots, Afghanistan has repeatedly reminded its neighbors and the broader international community that terrorism — fed by state and non-state sponsored radicalism — hardly recognizes no borders but transcends them across the globe. 
Afghanistan doesn’t distinguish between terrorist attacks at home and those that have taken civilian lives in the United States, Europe, Iran, Russia, Turkey, China, India, and the Middle East. Afghans have long been felt the pain of terrorism victims in these nations and continue to make the ultimate sacrifice to defend their country and the rest of the world against the intertwine threats of terrorism and radicalism.
Although Afghanistan has made notable progress in every sector since 2001, the country remains the regional and global frontline in the fight against terrorism, narcotics, and criminality. Between 2015 and 2017, 75,000 innocent Afghans, including women and children have been killed and wounded, due to non-stoppage of terrorist attacks on Afghan villages, towns, cities, as well as public and private institutions.
Recently, the High Peace Council (HPC) new chairman Mohammad Karim Khalili has said the council is working on a new strategy to facilitate government’s talks with various armed opposition groups. 
“The purpose of talks with the Taliban is to hear their viewpoint and push the peace talks forward with groups who possess constructive national ideas. The reconciliation process does not means surrender by any side,” he added, however he expressed concern at people’s distrust over the HPC’s performance and said the council should discharge its responsibility in line with people’s expectations. “We all know that the people of Afghanistan want peace and stability and an end to the conflict, “he added.
He said the HPC would soon launch a discussion with political parties, civil society groups, tribal people and other groups of the society to chalk out a fresh strategy for peace talks between the government and its armed opponents. He said regional and international consensus was also necessary for peace and stability in Afghanistan besides global cooperation in this regard.
This is while that National Unity Government leaders have several times echoed global call for peace in Afghanistan, arguing that “peace in Afghanistan will bring stability to Afghanistan’s neighbors, to Asia, and to the world.” 
Afghan nation has been exhausted from war and violence. Warring parties are fighting against an Islamic and democratic country and killing innocent people. It is hoped that the HPC’s new strategy to bring security and stability in the war-torn country.
It would be the best for interests of Afghanistan and the regional countries to curb influence of circles in the region that pursue agenda against another countries. The regional approach to a distant dream of Afghans which is peace and stability, would be the best possible solution for ending of the long-lasting war and bloodshed in the country.
