Pakistan Suggests Demands to Afghanistan
[Tolo News] Pak Premier has presented his country's demands to Afghan government, a source close to the issue has said.

Experts say the demands, which are yet to be announced officially by the government, threaten Afghanistan's illusory sovereignty and independence.
It takes an expert to discern the cleverly hidden demand that Afghanistan become a colony of Pakistain.
Experts highlighted that any hasty move of the government about the demands would be a big mistake and treachery to Afghans that history will record.

Pakistain should be consulted on training and number of Afghan forces, Pakistain share in Afghan mines and development projects should be cleared, implementation of Pakistain strategies in future governments in Afghanistan, recruitment of Pak cadres in government institutions and Pakistain should be kept aware of any sort of agreement between Afghanistan and its western allies including the US and NATO

Afghan government has yet to officially comment on the demands suggested by the Pak premier.
"How utterly idiotic!" would not be diplomatic, of course. No doubt Pakistan is seeing the light at the end of the tunnel as the time of President Obama's oft-promised withdrawal approaches. This is why such promises ought never be made.
Experts see some of the demands as obvious intervention of Pakistain into Afghan's domestic affairs.

"Pakistain has never been honest with us. Now Pakistain has made a close friendship with Afghan government and it was hidden before," Noor-ul Haq Ulomi, an Afghan political analyst, said.
No doubt a translation issue -- there is nothing friendly about such demands.
Experts say in the past ten years Pakistain has increased its influence in almost all government organisations and even into foreign institutions and an increase in violence is part of Pakistain's pressures to make Afghan government accept the demands.

"Unfortunately Mr President has begun to negotiate covertly with Pakistain and the government's preparation to provide more concessions to Pakistain for reconciliation with the Taliban is one of the biggest mistakes it is making," Haroon Mir, an Afghan expert, said.

Experts urged the government to present the demands before Afghans and the House of Representatives.
