Default Kabul, Riyadh to enter economic cooperation deal soon - 04-25-2012, 09:13 PM

The governments of Afghanistan and Saudi Arabia are all set to enter a comprehensive agreement on social and economic cooperation in the near future, Afghan envoy to the kingdom said on Wednesday.
“We have a long history of relationship with Saudi Arabia and the ties will hit new heights once the proposed agreement is signed,” Syed Ahmad Omarkhil told Pajhwok Afghan News.
All legal aspects of the nine-article agreement had been studied by the Afghan Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the pact was expected to be inked by ambassadors of the two countries in the near future, he said.
He said it was not a strategic partnership agreement, but a general cooperation accord that would remain focused on bilateral economic growth and cooperation in the areas of business, investment, technology, education, health, culture, sports and others.
“Former Afghan King Mohammad Zahir Shah inked an agreement of friendship with Saudi Arabia’s King Malik Abdul Aziz in Jeddah in 1932. Since then, there has been no new agreement between the two countries", he said.
He explained under the proposed agreement, Afghanistan and Saudi would develop bilateral ties in the framework of the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties (VCLT).
Omarkhil added the possible agreement had a special importance for Afghanistan because the Kingdom was economically strong.
“Saudi has a vast experience in mines exploration and we can see positive signs of its investments in Pakistan, India and Sudan. Afghanistan has more opportunities in this regard," he said.

A line[Durrand line] of hatred that raised a wall between the two brothers -Hamid Karzai

For generations, the Hindus of India prayed for deliverance from "the venom of the cobra, the teeth of the tiger and the vengeance of the Afghan."

The men of Kábul and Khilj also went home; and whenever they were questioned about the Musulmáns of the Kohistán (the mountains), and how matters stood there, they said, "Don't call it Kohistán, but Afghánistán; for there is nothing there but Afgháns and disturbances." Thus it is clear that for this reason the people of the country call their home in their own language Afghánistán, and themselves Afgháns. The people of India call them Patán; but the reason for this is not known. But it occurs to me, that when, under the rule of Muhammadan sovereigns, Musulmáns first came to the city of Patná, and dwelt there, the people of India (for that reason) called them Patáns—but God knows!
