New Delhi, 29/8: It has not even been two weeks since the Taliban’s occupation of Afghanistan (Taliban Rules Afghanistan). But it seems that from now on the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) has changed its view on the Taliban. In fact, on August 16, a day after the occupation of Kabul, a statement was issued by the UNSC regarding Afghanistan. In this, an appeal was made to the Taliban not to support terrorism in any country. Let us tell you that India is presiding the Security Council for the first time in the month of August. Therefore, this statement was also signed on behalf of India, but now the name of Taliban has been removed from this statement.
This is the first sign from the international community that the Taliban can no longer be boycotted globally. On 16 August, India’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations TS Tirumurti issued a statement on behalf of the UNSC. It read- ‘Members of the Security Council have mentioned the importance of combating terrorism in Afghanistan. Ensure that the territory of Afghanistan is not used to threaten or attack any country, and that neither the Taliban nor any other Afghan group or individual support terrorists operating in the territory of any other country needed.’
