Naseer Ahmad Faiq, head of Afghanistan’s Permanent Mission to the United Nations, said at the meeting of the UN Security Council that if the world wants to save Afghanistan, it must first interact with the political and democratic elites of Afghanistan.
Mr. Faiq said yesterday at the UN Security Council meeting that the world has only wasted time during the last two years. He stressed that instead of interacting with the Taliban, the world should start interacting with the political and popular elites.
Mr. Faiq added that today’s Taliban are no different from yesterday’s Taliban. He added that the most basic policy of the Taliban is coercion, repression, torture, and murder.
Fayeq said that the Afghanistan crisis is essentially political in nature. Therefore, a political solution should be sought. He added that so far, the attention of the international community has been focused more on human rights issues and the humanitarian situation, but after this, it should be focused on political issues.
