Afghanistan may not be ready for peace unless it formulates a strategy for re-integration of Taliban fighters into society, combating corruption and reining in the country’s runaway narcotics problem, a U.S. watchdog said Wednesday, May 1, 2019.

He said that India is financially facilitating the propaganda and agencies have even made arrests in this regard. Moeed further stated Pakistan was very concerned about the changing situation following the US drawdown and would be adversely affected by the growing violence and civil war in Afghanistan.

“The region’s peace is conditional on peace in Afghanistan,” he added.

Yusuf further said that the Afghan government needed to work on improving relations with Pakistan if it wanted peace in the country.

“[Also], I don’t see the US offering a financial package to Afghanistan and in that case, only Pakistan can provide a trade route to the landlocked country,” he said. The national security adviser stressed that the UN Refugee Agency needed to set up camps for Afghan refugees.
