India has accused the Security Council and the international community of tending to ignore the terrorists ravaging Afghanistan and their backers while these forces “have stood up against one of the biggest collective military efforts in the world”.
“The international community’s collective inability and unwillingness to see the problem for what it has inflicted huge costs on the people of Afghanistan,” India’s Permanent Representative Syed Akbaruddin told the Security Council on Wednesday during a debate on the situation there.
“The council has even shied away from condemning some of the terrorist attacks in Afghanistan,” he said. According to (FirstPost).
“Why is it that we are not hearing discussions about ideas and plans of action of the Security Council on a conflict which has left many Afghan lives shattered and brutalized,” he stressed.
He listed logical questions that the Security Council and the world were shying away from asking and which would point to Pakistan’s role.
“Where are these anti-government elements getting their weapons, explosives, training, and funding from? Where do they find safe havens and sanctuaries,” he asked.
“How is it that these elements have stood up against one of the biggest collective military efforts in the world? How is it that these elements collaborate with the world’s most dreadful terrorists in killing and brutalizing the Afghans?”
The sanctions that the Council is supposed to impose on terrorists in Afghanistan have been ineffective, he said.
The Taliban, Haqqani Network, Al Qaeda, Daesh, Lashkar-e-Toiba, Jaish-e-Mohammad and others like them should be treated like terrorist organisations with no justifications offered for their activities, he added.
