Implementation of TAPI project strengthens economic-political ties among member countries
 This important 1800 km long project transfers gas from Turkmenistan through Afghanistan and Pakistan to India. It passes through Herat, Farah, Nimroz, Helmand and Kandahar provinces and after penetrating into Spinboldak reaches into Pakistan and extends to Fazlika of India.Implementation of TAPI project is the outcome of efforts of member countries that was achieved after a decade.
Transferring of part of Central Asia energy to South Asia countries is the most important goal and basic destination of this project.In fact TAPI project is the connecting point of central and South Asia.
Based on assessments of economic-political exerts,TAPI could bring positive economic and political results for regional countries specially Afghanistan including establishment of economic convergence among regional countries specially creation of employment opportunities. TAPI project is the first achievement of member countries economic diplomacy as in recent years, Afghanistan has launched vast efforts for success of economic diplomacy.
It should be said that holding of RECCA and Heart of Asia countries conferences in last years by Afghanistan was in fact for this purpose. Beside TAPI project, establishment of Silk Route, extension of CASA-1000 and TUTAP projects are other frank examples of this diplomacy. Implementation of TAPI materializes regional convergence and is expected to become the factor for restoration of security, stability and peace in Afghanistan.
In the opening ceremony of TAPI project, it was emphasized that effective steps must be taken subsequently for regional security. Because implementation of every economic project requires security and stability and certainly its not possible that such a big and unique project be implemented in lack of stability and security.  Another groups of experts believe that with implementation of TAPI a strong economic, political relation would be created among the four member countries and they would be benefitted from its advantages and due to their interests, they would try to support and protect it.
According to media report, even the Taliban have also supported TAPI project in their area of under control. The four partners would try to have joint cooperation for elimination of security threats.
