Afghanistan was created in the late nineteenth century. At that time this area was the scene of a struggle between the Russian Empire and the British Empire. This is called the "Great Game".

Today's Afghanistan was created to act as a buffer state bringing together multiple ethnicities including Pashtuns and Baluchis. Those were later divided by the Durand Line (Lord Mortimer Durand, the Viceroy of India) in 1893 that traces the border between Afghanistan and the Empire of British India (now Pakistan). This ethnic partition will remain a source of conflict for the nowadays 30 millions Afghan population.
