Dr. Jayanta Ray, formerly, Centenary Professor of International Relations and Director, South and South East Asian Studies, Calcutta University, and a renowned scholar, researcher and author, said that the situation in Afghanistan has become so complicated that there is no quick solution to the problem.
In an interview with VOA, Dr. Ray argued that whether the Afghan election is corruption-free or not, or whether Mr. Karzai won or got defeated in the election, it will not play any significant role in reining the growing power of the Talibans.
The involvement of so many powers in the affairs of Afghanistan for the last few decades, created many currents and cross currents within that country. He said that a full close cooperation of the nations of the world and world organizations like the UNO, EU, Commonwealth etc could help change Afghan situation.
He thinks that withdrawal of international military forces from Afghanistan is not possible, because it will give freehand to the Taliban and other terrorist forces. He believes that international involvement in military and other civilian and developmental aspects in Afghanistan will be there for many more years.
