Pakistan’s support for Taliban expanding war: CEO
KABUL (Pajhwok): Chief Executive Officer Abdullah Abdullah on Monday said he had explicitly explained Afghanistan’s stance against Pakistan’s support for terrorism and the Taliban at the UN General Assembly (UNGA) meeting, saying his address “drew general support and sympathy.”
Abdullah said this while presiding over a Cabinet meeting in Kabul following his return from New York where he addressed the 70th the UN General Assembly session.
At the UNGA, he said, apart from the annual session, other discussions about Afghanistan also took place.
“Taking the opportunity in my main speech at the UNGA, we presented Afghanistan’s achievements over the past few years and on the other hand we also raised fundamental problems of Afghan people, including insecurity and their reasons.”
Abdullah said Taliban and other terrorists were harbored in safe havens across Afghanistan borders and support for them had expanded the war and insecurity in Afghanistan. He said this issue was also flagged at the UNGA.
“Like before countries don’t ask for evidence in this regard. There is ample evidence and the issue is also very clear,” he said, adding that there was a general support and sympathy for Afghanistan’s position at the UNGA.
