I think these international conferences are not a bad idea, but they are not successful for ordinary people (despite they attract all the media attention) because the authorities attending the summit do not fulfill the expectations they have created before de meetings. After the meetings we donĀ“t perceive positive changes. Bye and lucky for you and your family.

I think security measures that were taken by local orginizers in your country are fair and appropriate. In the coutry where a chance of the terrorists' attacks is so high it makes sence to do so.Talking about effectivness of these international conferences, I agree that usually we see no special chages in a field that the conference was held on. I think we see no changes just because officials don't keep their promisses, and not because making the conferences is a bad idea.BBC_fan Wed 21 Jul 2010 20:52:31 GMT+1 Tienhoa http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/learningenglish/2010/07/kabul-is-on-lock-down.shtml?page=36#comment4 It is difficult to blame who are responsible for such inconvenience, however, I can argue that both Afghan's government and people have responsibility for social unrest and poverty in Afghan. While the government has shown a poor governance and high corruption record, most of Afghans including tribal groups and militants is trying to take control the country under Islamic rules. Therefore, unless resolved ethnic conflicts and corruption, peace and order in Afghan have never been achieved.

Improvement in common people lives can be slightly seen, but compare to the vast donation of the world seems nothing. the new government is elected by people after it promised the public by doing and providing all kind of live facilities, but the Government failed in fulfilling its promises and this is why people are no longer on trust. i am surprise while the world leader and international advisor to the government of Afghanistan advise on working from the top not from the bottom level of the local communities. Hope I answered somehow to your questions.RegardsEnayat Safi Tue 20 Jul 2010 16:22:38 GMT+1 unkownunkown http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/learningenglish/2010/07/kabul-is-on-lock-down.shtml?page=18#comment2 Hi Enayat, I think you've written a professional report! Thanks for your news! Well, from your article, I learned that the Kabul International Conference is a very large event in the city. It also brings much inconvenience to the local people. The residents hate this conference, and believe it gives no good to their life. Sorry for those people who are being so much troubled because of the conference. But, could I inquire some questions? I know little about your country and its current situation. though I read news everyday. Do the people(I mean the common people) in your country is leading an even unhappier life after the Afghanistan War in 2001? I accuse the war which has destroyed homes and lives, however it did happened and now, under a new government, is people's life (or your surroudings) having improvment?or not having improvment? Thirdly, is the new government really elected by the Afghan people? Do they trust their government? Thanks for your answering if you do not think the questions above are impolite. I wish the Afghanistan people live peacefully and happily. Last thing, I find that lots of people condemn "International Conferences" attended by heads of countries and world organizations. They believe these so called "International Conferences" do no good to the world and the world's people. Yes, I also think so. I feel really disappointed at the Copenhargen Climate Conference.Best wishes!

I 'm really sorry to hear about that and thank you to informing us about this situation . When such conferences take place in Tehran they just give public holiday . I don't want to be pesimestic but I agree with your shopkeeper . I think every year lots of money spend over such so called conferenceslots . I 'm wondering what 's the reall effect of those confrerences except spending lots of money ! hope to impproving and bye Pary from Iran Tue 20 Jul 2010 07:36:16 GMT+1 Mustafa Khaleqi http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/learningenglish/2010/07/kabul-is-on-lock-down.shtml?page=0#comment0 Very inconvenience for everyone in Kabul. My parents flight to Dubai did nit even existed apparently been told by the Kabul police, on ever roads blocks leading to Kabul airport that they were trying to get to airport.
