This article is from journalist Resul Tosun, a former MP and close to Erdo'an:
  • Turkey feels she has a historical responsibility toward Afganistan
  • Turkish objectives: peace, reconciliation, progress, moderation, less influence from Russia/China/Iran etc.
  • Turkey wants to invest in building institutions of administration, military, education, health etc. 1.1b$ has already been spent
  • There're 5 fractions in the Taliban - Russia, Iran etc. have their supporters - Pak close to the strongest fraction
  • Turkey doesn't want to get into fight with anyone in Afghanistan. Pak's support and cooperation with a hint of jointness is a must to keep it that way
  • Turkey is looking forward to a long term presence in this region in cooperation with Pak in a win-win mode

Turkey must try and engage with Taliban

Taliban are reasonable people

only thing is if Taliban sees the Turks as doing Western work then there could be issues

otherwise send a high level delegation along with islamic party to meet the Taliban

I am sure Taliban will welcome their Turkish brothers

Pakistan and ISI can mediate the role

Good points. The earlier the USA leaves, and the more the Taliban gains the better!!! Then no qualms left about who's in charge....

The Taliban would almost welcome Turkish involvement and support, be it military or economic. However, being America's surrogate will not work.

Can somebody explain why a small contingement of Turkish troops has to remain?

The entire NATO/EU/KSA/Iran etc. are supporting PKK/YPG/YPD etc. to wage 5th gen warfare against Turkey!! And, a defense embargo is in place for the last 5 years!!! And, Turkey is independently and successfully taking the fight into the Northern Irak/Syria, the East Med, Libya, Karabag' etc. against Russia, NATO, EU, Israil, Iran etc.!!! Who's the surrogate here????

As for the Turkish presence, it's the quality not the quantity that matters!! Do you think Turkey deployed divisions to 100% upset the calculations of the Imperialists in Libya, Karabag', the East Med etc???

My understanding was that Turkey, in Afghanistan at the behest of the US, was staying also at the behest of the US. If that's not the case, let me know.

Also, what is the strategic objective of this force?

I think turkey going there as talb backbone.same As Pakistan is their backup. To stop other parties to not fight talb boys. Their support can provide taliban more easy ride to full control of Afghanistan. It will show to India n rest of the world that T&P boys are not alone . Uncertainty in Afghanistan will help India n usa. Finally Usa has given India its first test drive. N India could not hide its weapons delivery . It means inda already showed its card. Dear India it will be Bumping ride for you guys after sending weapons to Afghanistan government. Thus is my opinion

That is the case and that’s why the Afghan Taliban are not willing to let Turks control the Kabul airport after the withdrawal deadline

not under the nato banner bro. Turkey needs to independently contact the Taliban and make an agreement with them without any nato/ u.s. influence, Pakistan would gladly facilitate that. Taliban needs investments, reconstructions, military training & equipment from Turkey but they will never accept it under the banner of nato which carries the subliminal christian cross...

Please read the major points!!! It doesn't say NATO, it says "in cooperation with Pak in a win-win mode"...

No further explanations are necessary to have a less troublesome Afganistan ....

I realize that. but as it stands right now, Turkey is there as a nato member. What I am saying is that Turkey needs to withdraw its forces as a nato member and THEN start a new process afresh, a new relationship with the Taliban's Afghanistan free from any nato influence or shadow; a bilateral friendship and alliance facilitated by Pakistan between two independent Muslim nations, Turkey & Afghanistan, free from all western influence.

Where was Turkey during the last 40 years while Afghanistan was being bombed into Stone age? They should focus on their own backyard and sort out that mess first , including Syria, Kurds and Palestine.

Suddenly everyone has an urge to be an empire. The Turks and Persians. All on the back of western invasions.
