UNITED NATIONS , March 16 (Xinhua) -- Afghanistan's permanent envoy to the United Nations on Monday highlighted the crucial role of lasting peace and security to the country's stability and prosperity.


"Lasting peace and security is critical to building a prosperous and stable Afghanistan and to ending the vicious cycle of fragility in the country," said Zahir Tanin at an open meeting of the UN Security Council on the current situation in Afghanistan.


"This is particular true at a time when violence affects increasing number of civilians and when the crippling triple threat of terrorism, extremism, and criminality threatens to undermine the future of the Afghan people and the wider region," he noted , adding peace and reconciliation process is the first priority of the Afghan government.


"It is time for those still engaged in fighting to heed the widespread call for peace, and to play their part in building the country's future," he said.


According to him, the government of Afghanistan is determined to build an Afghanistan that is ready to stand on its own feet, take full responsibility of its own affairs and assume its rightful place as a full and equal partner of the international community.


Analysts believe that armed militancy and violent incidents are expected to rise in Afghanistan with the coming of spring when the weather gets warmer and snow begins to melt in the country.


Spring and summer have been known as "fighting season" in Afghanistan since the Taliban usually takes advantage of the fair weather in attacking the security forces and civilians groups alike. During winter , the Taliban is forced to dig in their strongholds and seldom launch anti-government activities.


Afghan President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani has been striving hard to initiate a face-to-face dialogue with the Taliban. His unity government is trying its best to convince the Taliban to join the political mainstream for the sake of the country which has not enjoyed peace and stability for a long time.


"We welcome the new phase of cooperation between Afghanistan and Pakistan towards the shared goal of peace and reconciliation," Tanin said, "It is essential to the success of the peace process and heralds a new era of relations between our two brother nations. "


"We also welcome the support of all our partners, particularly in the region and the Islamic world, and would like to express our appreciation to the People's Republic of China for its help facilitating the peace process ," he added.


LONDON, Aug. 6 (Xinhua) -- The radio astronomy site in Britain that helped revolutionise the understanding of the universe has been given the highest level of national heritage protection.


Six structures at the Jodrell Bank Observatory, run by the University of Manchester, have been granted listed status by Historic England.


The listing means the installation has to be cared for and protected for future generations.


The main radio telescope which dominates the countryside to the south of Manchester is already a Grade I listed structure.


To mark a landmark anniversary this week for the main telescope, its sister telescope , known as the Mark II Telescope, has won the same accolade. Five original buildings and structures, including the telescope control rooms, have also won protected status.


The observatory at Jodrell Bank in Cheshire is one of the earliest sites for radio-telescopes in the world, dating from when radio astronomy started immediately after the Second World War.


It had a pivotal role in the development of the new science of radio astronomy , which was one of the first steps towards modern Astrophysics, revolutionising the understanding of the universe.


The main dish at the site is known as the Lovell Telescope, named in honor of Sir Bernard Lovell, the Manchester academic who developed the observatory, using at first ex-military radar equipment.


The government's Department for Digital , Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) has now approved the six new listings to mark the 60th anniversary of the Lovell Telescope's "first light", the point at which it was first used to collect radio signals from the universe. In October it also celebrate 60 years since it was used to track Sputnik I at the dawn of the space age.


Professor Teresa Anderson, director of the visitor center at the observatory, said : "Jodrell Bank has welcomed millions of visitors , drawn by its landmark scientific structures. Science is a hugely important part of our cultural heritage and we are very pleased to see that recognised and protected with these new designations."


Heritage Minister John Glen said: "Jodrell Bank has been at the forefront of scientific research and is known around the world for its important role in developing our understanding of the Universe. These listings will protect and celebrate the heritage of this significant site and help inspire the next generation of scientists and astronomers."


Crispin Edwards from Historic England, said: "Jodrell Bank is a remarkable place where globally important discoveries were made that transformed radio astronomy and our understanding of the Universe.


We are celebrating the history of the site and its impact on the world by increasing its recognition on the National Heritage List for England."


The Mark II telescope was designed by Lovell and structural engineer Henry Charles Husband who had both worked on the design of the Lovell telescope. Their prototype design for Mark II, using pre-stressed concrete mounts, was internationally adopted and is now synonymous with modern satellite telecommunications. Despite their age the Lovell Telescope, now the third largest in the world , and Mark II, continue to be at the forefront of scientific discovery.
