In the same time, a number of Afghan politicians say that the recent efforts launched by different countries of the region indicate that Afghan problem is not only a domestic problem of that countries, it is an international problem that would led to regional and beyond regional crisis. Now the world have learnt that continue of their rivalry in Afghanistan would have no any consequences just destruction of the capacities and losing the opportunities in Afghanistan and in the region. In the other hand the continuation of the conflict already badly affected the region and the world economy. US, the west, Iran, Pakistan, Russia and China have spent huge sum of money but so far they have not accessed their interests and objectives. For this reason, the world wants to change Afghanistan from the rivalry field in to cooperation field.
