Afghanistan’s Permanent Representative to the UN Ghulam Isakzai called on the UN Security Council to prevent the outbreak of a civil war in the country and its transformation into a rogue state.
“We have the opportunity to prevent a civil war from starting in Afghanistan, and the country itself becoming a pariah,” the ambassador said, addressing the participants in an emergency meeting of the Security Council on Afghanistan.
Referring to reports of mass executions of the military, killings of civilians, robberies – now in Kabul – the diplomat reminded that the promises of the Taliban cannot be trusted. According to him, in the capital, they have already begun to draw up lists of unwanted people and search for “enemies”.
Ghulam Isakzai called on the Security Council and the UN Secretary General to use every opportunity at their disposal to prevent the Taliban from “killing Afghans, destroying infrastructure, including museum exhibits, and violating the rights of the country’s residents.” According to him, the UN should demand that the Taliban hold the promised amnesty, as well as establish humanitarian corridors for those who fear revenge and violence from the Taliban.
According to the Afghan ambassador, the Security Council and the UN as a whole must make it clear that they do not recognize the administration that came to power by force, and the government, which will not include women and representatives of different ethnic groups. “The restoration of the Islamic Emirate should not be recognized either,” he said.
