The Frontier Post, 10/22
PESHAWAR - The United Nations has failed to restore peace in Afghanistan rather it could not stop foreign interference in the war torn country.
It has even no proposal for the solution of Afghan crisis but only present recommendation,² said Shahzada Masoud, Chairman foreign affairs committee, of the Great National Islamic United Front.
In a press statement issued here on Saturday, he said that the UN had sent its six representatives to Afghanistan but all of them had failed to find out a solution to the Afghan crisis.

The formation of national government and the war could only be solved through the emergency Loya Jirga. He said that the problems of terrorism and heroin could also be ended if there is a representative government in Afghanistan.

The drought and severe winter season had multiplied the miseries of the helpless Afghan nation.
