Kabul truck-bomb toll rises to more than 150 killed - Afghan president

Kabul has been on edge since a truck bombing last Wednesday in the highly fortified diplomatic quarter killed at least 90 people and wounded hundreds, the deadliest attack in the city since 2001.

The corps commanders concluded that instead of blaming Pakistan, Afghanistan needs to look inward and identify the real issues. We also reminisce about Pakistan lending funds to Germany to help it rise from the World War II debris.

"The launch of the Kabul Process tomorrow is an important marker for each and every country in the region to show its true support for Afghanistan's aspirations for peace", said British ambassador Dominic Jermey on Monday.

According to sources, the rocket landed in the volleyball court of the compound.

"No injury reported so far", a source said in New Delhi.

Officials in Herat believe explosives were hidden in a motorcycle left in a parking area outside the Jama Masjid, a large mosque dating from the 12th century. For its part, the Taliban denied involvement.

Ghani pointed out to delegates attending the meeting that 75,000 Afghans were killed or wounded in 2015 and 2016.He also said that in the past two years, 11,000 foreign fighters have come in to Afghanistan to fight for Daesh.Delegates from 23 nations and the European Union, the United Nations and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation are attending the two day meeting to discuss the current Afghan situation. All this is to say that in this backdrop when anger was boiling against Afghan high-ups, a peace moot was planned in Kabul and the U.S. administration was about to announce its new Afghan policy, one can easily understand whose interests these attacks have served.

Despite heightened tensions, the government said it was determined to proceed with the peace conference Tuesday, rather than be seen to be giving in to terrorism.

Ghani said at the conference that if the Taliban did not begin negotiations soon, he would seek new sanctions against the group as a sponsor of terrorism.

The United States officially withdrew from Afghanistan in 2014, but it maintains a presence of about 8,400 troops there. He said that up to 11,000 foreign militants had allegedly arrived in Afghanistan in the last two years to fight for Daesh.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack, but the Afghan government has accused the Taliban-allied Haqqani Network. Twenty people died in that attack.

According to Curtis, the Trump administration has completed the review of the Afghanistan policy and it is expected that the final results will be announced through media in the near future.

"To continue our work we are asking only one thing: Security around our hospital and not to be targeted intentionally". "One hopes this meeting today in Kabul provides more clarity from Washington", said Davood Moradian, director of the Afghan Institute for Strategic Studies in Kabul. Since playing blame game without finding a solution to the problem is increasing acrimony between the two countries.

What can the Afghan government do to stop bomb attacks? "We want to be able to trust Pakistan and we want the chance for friendly, cooperative relationships that will reduce poverty and promote growth on both sides of the frontier", he warned.
