The spike in attacks in Afghanistan is an attack on President @realDonaldTrump 's peace plan for Afghanistan, and an attack on Pakistan's role in it. /1

The assassination attempt on @AmrullahSaleh2 is part of the effort to derail Pres #Trump's peace plan for #Afghanistan; comes just 4 days after #Pakistan Federal Minister visited #Panjshir Valley & Mausoleum of Cdr Ahmed Shah Massoud, in a major policy shift for Pakistan.
The visit by @ShehryarAfridi1 to the #Panjshir mausoleum of Cdr Ahmed Shah Massoud marked a policy shift in #Pakistan away from #Taliban, indicating equal respect for all #Afghans, & support from #Islamabad for the exceptional efforts of @US4AfghanPeace

This was the first time a #Pakistani Federal Minister visited Massoud’s mausoleum in #Panjshir since his assassination 19yrs ago, a day before 9/11. Incumbent rulers in #Kabul are Massoud supporters. #Pakistan is saying, 'We extend a hand of peace & friendship to all #Afghans.'
By sending the first federal #Pakistan minister to the mausoleum of Ahmed Shah Massoud, #Islamabad sent a clear message to the #Taliban: We no longer have favorites in #Afghanistan. We want friendship with all #Afghans.

Massoud, as Commander of now defunct #NorthernAlliance, was backed by #India #Iran #Russia. @ShehryarAfridi1's visit to #Panjshir as the highest #Pakistan official to do so shows that #Islamabad does not want renewed proxy wars in #Afghanistan after the #US withdrawal.
#Pakistan is also signaling to the former regional backers of the proxy war that #Islamabad is ready to look beyond #Taliban to all #Afghans & work with them to peacefully foil any attempt to restart proxy wars. #Pakistanis hope Afghans won't allow regional players to meddle.
Officials in #Washington #Kabul #Islamabad need to understand that their bickering & infighting is a win for other players in the region who would like to see permanent conflict & a war of attrition between #US-#Pakistan-#Afghanistan. 🇺🇸 🇵🇰 🇦🇫
