The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan has said the United Nations Security Council report by the sanctions monitoring team on the situation in the country is “biased and far from reality”.
The Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said that the report of the United Nations Security Council is far from reality. He added that this report was either written with the intention of destroying the Taliban, or the analysis team and the UN monitoring committee did not have enough information on this matter, or it was written by those who fled Afghanistan and today desire to ruin the international image of Taliban.
Mr. Mujahid said that the disagreements between the leaders of Taliban, the transformation of Afghanistan into a safe haven for terrorists, drug trafficking by the Taliban officials, the monopoly of power and the absence of all ethnic groups in power are baseless and Taliban consider it nothing more than propaganda.
This reaction from the Taliban comes when the United Nations Security Council’s analysis and monitoring team said in a new report that the Taliban’s policy is “Pashtun-centred”. The Council added that ethnic tyranny is the main characteristic of this ethnic group.
The Security Council also said that currently there is no clear vision for the future of Afghanistan. The people of Afghanistan and the world should not expect change in the near and medium term.
This International Council added that terrorist groups under the rule of Taliban have more freedom of action and can easily endanger the security of Afghanistan and the world. In addition, contrary to their commitment, the Taliban have close relationship with terrorist groups, including Al-Qaida and TTP, in most cases they have the decisive and all-around support of the Taliban.
Criticizing the world’s approach, the Security Council said that Taliban officials travel easily to any country and there are no restrictions on their travel. This international organization added that the unauthorized trips of the Taliban are concerning, and the world should be vigilant.
In another part of this report, it was stated that there are strong disagreements between the Taliban officials over the division of power and the structure of the government, and it has happened many times that there have been clashes between the power-seeking factions of Taliban.
In the end, the Security Council said that the Taliban feed themselves through drug production, drug trafficking and systematic extortion, and that is how they continue their political life.
