Lt. Gen. (Retd.) Raza Muhammad Khan (Defense Analyst): It is unfortunate that the international community is not paying serious attention on prevailing situation in Afghanistan. The need of the hour is that the immediate neighbors of the war-torn country are obligated to provide assistance to the vulnerable Afghan people. China and Russia being the strong stakeholders in the region must come forward and Iran, Turkey and Central Asian states will follow suit. The Organization of Islamic Cooperation is the second largest inter-governmental organization after the United Nations, with the membership of 57 states. It needs to take immediate notice of the current situation in Afghanistan and release the funds to avert the humanitarian crises and improve the infrastructure of the country. The west is following the policy of wait and see, but they must remember that impacts of anarchy and instability in Afghanistan are going to hurt the entire world.
