United Nations: Over the last few days, the Taliban has intensified violence and suicide attacks in Afghanistan. At the same time, the Taliban has established its relationship with international terrorist groups. Under such circumstances, neglecting the reality in Afghanistan and relieving the sanctions on the Taliban can be counter-productive and detrimental to the ongoing Afghan peace negotiations, warned Afghan envoy to the United Nations, Adela Raz.
While addressing the United Nations Security Council, Adela Raz, drew attention to the rising threat of terrorism in Afghanistan. The Afghan government is making efforts to establish peace and stability in Afghanistan. Moreover, the Afghan government has participated in discussions with the Taliban to be held in Qatar. Also, the negotiations are going to be held in the next month. However, Raz drew attention to the fact that despite such efforts, Taliban attacks in Afghanistan have intensified. Furthermore, Raz also accused that the Taliban has been actively cooperating with terrorist outfits that have been banned by the international community.
However, Raz avoided mentioning those outfits. Taliban had agreed to have cut its ties off with Al-Qaeda and other terrorist organisations in the Qatar meeting. But, a few weeks ago, Al-Qaeda, as well as Pakistan based terrorist outfits, revealed that they are still connected to the Taliban. In such a situation, the UN Security Council must not hurry to lenient their sanctions with the Taliban. Before that, the UN Inspection Commission must study the present-day situation in Afghanistan, appealed Raz.
Meanwhile, against the background of the deal with the Taliban, the withdrawal of the United States from Afghanistan with not affect US’ action against terrorism in Afghanistan, asserted the US.
