India has asked the United Nations Forum to take immediate steps, strongly condemning the violence being carried out by the Taliban and other terrorist organizations in Afghanistan. India said, the world community should work towards removing all artificial transit barriers imposed on Afghanistan. India has said that violence continues in Afghanistan even amid peace talks.
Nagaraj Naidu, India’s Deputy Permanent Representative in the UN, was speaking at the United Nations General Assembly in support of a resolution on Afghanistan. He pointed to Pakistan, saying that Afghanistan is not getting full transit rights because its trade with India is being disrupted. For this, the world community must remove all artificial transit barriers imposed on Afghanistan.
Naidu said, zero tolerance in all forms is necessary for terrorism. Naidu said, the security and stability of Afghanistan is once again in danger due to the violence being carried out by the Taliban and other terrorist groups. It is important to pay attention to this. He said that the peace process and violence cannot go hand in hand. We will have to find ways for a comprehensive ceasefire immediately.
The United Nations General Assembly has approved a resolution praising the progress in peace talks between the government of Afghanistan and the Taliban. Along with this, there has also been an urge by the Taliban, Al Qaeda, IS and its associated groups to intensify efforts to prevent terrorist attacks.
Out of the 193 members of the General Assembly, the proposal received 130 votes in favor while 59 countries did not participate. Russia opposed the proposal while China, Pakistan and Belarus were absent. The proposal also condemned the continuing violence in the area.
