The Afghan Peace Process

In a span of two years, Afghan President Ashraf Ghani has been able to successfully bring about half of Afghanistan’s opposition groups into a peace process that will eventually integrate them into the Afghan government.

But Russia imposed a roadblock to the Afghan peace process recently by first prodding France to oppose the inclusion of Gulbuddin Hekmatyar’s Hizb-e-Islami in the Afghan peace process at the UN Security Council. As a follow-up to France’s move against the Afghan opposition in the UN Security Council, Russia opposed the removal of Hekmatyar’s group from what appears to be an international blacklist.

Russia has now blatantly revealed its hand in the obstruction of a peace process in Afghanistan the way it has obstructed a peace process in Korea for decades. But a positive sign came out of Mr. Amrullah Saleh, a young Afghan security apparatchik who said today that Afghanistan will not allow Russia to undermine its peace process with opposition groups.

Russia not only bombed Afghanistan into the dark ages in the 1980’s, but now it seeks to prevent the unification of Northern and Southern Afghanistan the way it prevented the unification of Germany during the Cold War. Unless the United States aligns itself with China to rollback Russian aggression in Afghanistan and Syria, Russia will advance in its renewed quest to solidify an unwanted divide between the Western world and the Eastern World.
