KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Sunday said it was assessing Pakistaninfo-icon’s order of imposing sanctions on Talibaninfo-icon leaders.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Gran Hiwad said in a statement that the Afghan government would clarify its position after an assessment in this regard.

Pakistan issued the order in ‘a statutory notification’ and placed it on the website of the Foreign Office in Islamabad late Friday.

It called for strict enforcement of assets freeze, travel ban and arms embargo on the Afghan militant movement.

Section 10 of the SRO explained the purpose of issuance of the new order, which said: “In exercise of the powers conferred by Section 2 of the United Nations’ (Security Council) Act, 1948, (XIV of 1948), the federal government is pleased to order that the Resolution 2255 (2015) be fully implemented with respect to Taliban leaders and affiliated entities...”

Gran said the MoFA would share its information with the media after completing its assessment.

Pakistan has ordered full compliance with the United Nations’ Security Council sanctions against Afghan Taliban and the Haqqani Network.

The Taliban have not yet commented in this regard.
