The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) has said that Afghanistan will not be allowed to become a haven for terrorists.A resolution passed at the UNSC on Monday night Indian time said that Afghanistan's land will not be used to attack, threaten or give safe haven to terrorists from any other country.India is currently the chair of the UNSC.
This proposal was introduced by the US, Britain and France.13 members of the 15-member Security Council voted in favor of it, while two members Russia and China did not take part in the vote.
India's Permanent Representative to the United Nations TS Tirumurti said in a tweet that the resolution states that Afghanistan's land will not be used for terrorism.The fight against terrorism will continue with the declaration of terrorists under 1267 of the United Nations.The Taliban will let the Afghans out.Respect the rights of women and minorities.
Indeed, during the 1996-2001 regime of the Taliban, Afghanistan had become a haven for a terrorist organization like Al Qaeda.Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden also took refuge in Afghanistan.With this, once again after the Taliban comes to power, there is a possibility of becoming a base for the terrorists of Afghanistan.
