Fruitless Diplomacy - Khaama Press (KP) | Afghan News Agency:
President Ghani favours diplomacy with Pakistan, a polar contrast when compared to his predecessor who preferred strained relations. President Ghani’s diplomacy also came with giving Pakistan access to Baghram prison and unobtrusively recognizing the Durand line. Diplomacy works great if both sides have a lot to lose if they do not engage in diplomacy. Pakistan has less to lose if diplomacy and AF-PAK relations sour and less to win if relations are proven successful. In contrast Afghanistan has a lot win, if relations triumph the increase in both national security and economically would be immense. But not too much to lose if diplomacy is unengaged, in recent years the Afghan Armed Forces have proved that they can secure the country. Of course a lot of work is still left to do.
