Afghanistan Conference in Brussels opens today


The EU is the official co-organizer of the event, which is planned for two days.


Over 70 countries and 20 international organizations and agencies in total are to attend. The main issues which are up for consideration are peacekeeping, state building, and development. Today, the first part will be devoted to the problem of Afghan women (protection and human rights) and the other is regional integration.

Tomorrow the President of Afghanistan Ashraf Ghani is expected to give an address, along with President of the EU Donald Tusk, and Foreign Minister of the EU Federica Mogherini. Also to be presented is the World Bank report and an announced joint statement of civil society of Afghanistan.

Liberal expansion

The EU intends to extend its zone of influence in Afghanistan through a number of economic, political and social projects. Although the EU has virtually no adequate experience in peacemaking, Brussels is clearly trying to speculate on the topic of security in Afghanistan, where there is fighting with the Taliban, and there is a problem with the cultivation of opium which is regular and ongoing. The United States has a negative role in the stability of the country as well.

To penetrate into Afghan society, the EU creates puppet structures through which the destruction of traditional values is carried out, ​​and the desired political agenda is introduced.


Do not expect that Brussels will achieve great success anytime soon, however an onerous contract can put Afghanistan at the mercy of the EU, just as questionable as the imposed model of cooperation in any number of former Soviet republics through the "Eastern Partnership" project.

For Afghanistan it would be useful to work more actively through the SCO, of which it received membership recently. China and Russia are the most appropriate strong partners in the region, without whose support improvement of the situation in that country is unlikely to happen. Infrastructure projects through the "Silk Road" also can significantly modify the geopolitical features of Afghanistan.
