- The report also stated that the Taliban had not yet severed ties with other active terrorist organisations like Al-Qaeda.
- According to him, the region is directly threatened by connections between terrorist organisations operating out of Afghanistan and those on the UN Security Council's list,
In a covert reference to Pakistan, India stated on Thursday that connections between UNSC-prohibited groups like the LeT and the JeM pose a direct threat to the region and called for coordinated international action to prevent Afghanistan from becoming a haven for terrorist organisations and to prevent proscribed entities from receiving any support from the region’s terrorist safe havens.
In the UN Security Council discussion on UNAMA, India’s Permanent Representative to the UN, Ambassador T S Tirumurti, stated that ISIL-presence K’s in Afghanistan and their ability to conduct strikes have significantly increased. Muslim State The Islamic State militant group’s affiliate Khorasan, which is believed to have its stronghold in Afghanistan, continues to threaten neighbouring nations with terrorist attacks.
He noted the most recent results of the Analytical Support and Sanctions Monitoring Team Report of the 1988 Sanctions Committee, which showed that the current Afghan government need to act far more forcefully to uphold their anti-terrorism obligations.
The report also stated that the Taliban had not yet severed ties with other active terrorist organisations like Al-Qaeda. According to him, the region is directly threatened by connections between terrorist organisations operating out of Afghanistan and those on the UN Security Council’s list, such as the Lashkar-e-Tayyaba and the Jaish-e-Mohammed.
In order to prevent Afghanistan from becoming a haven for other terrorist organisations like ISIS-K, Al-Qaeda, JeM, and LeT, he warned that there are severe challenges that require our immediate attention and coordinated action.
Tirumurti added, subtly referencing Pakistan, “We need to see actual progress in ensuring that such banned terrorists, entities, or their aliases do not get any support, tacit or direct, either from Afghan soil or from the terror sanctuaries situated in the region.
In order to achieve agreement on matters of security, peace, and stability, he continued, India regularly monitors the security situation in Afghanistan and actively engages with the international community. “ We vehemently reject the terrorist assault that took place on June 18 against Gurudwara Dashmesh Pita Sahibji in Kabul.
It is a big concern when terrorists attack places of worship for minority communities and target innocent civilians.
