ABSTRACT

This article reveals that the Durand Line served as the main corridor for interference of foreign forces in the domestic affairs of Afghanistan, the emergence of Taliban, Al-Qaeda and ISIS structures in this country, their financial and military support, and other negative trends in the Afghan land. The novelty of the article is that the author analyses the Durand Line by realpolitik approach as the main root of the Afghan problem at the current period and offers recommendations for addressing disputed border issues between Afghanistan and Pakistan.
