Statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan on the Implementation of the UN Security Council Resolutions on the end of War in Afghanistan and the Fight Against Terrorism
KABUL – The Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan has taken note and thoroughly reviewed the Statutory Regulatory Order issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan on the implementation of UN Security Council Resolutions. According to the document, the Pakistani government has pledged to implement the UN Security Council Resolutions regarding travel restrictions, arms embargoes, and the freezing of financial assets of the individuals and groups affiliated with the Taliban. The Islamic Republic of Afghanistan will continuously monitor and follow the process of implementation of this document as well as the fulfillment of all pertinent UNSC resolutions.
It is obligatory upon all member states to implement the UN Security Council Resolutions aimed at preventing war and bloodshed and combating terrorist financing and equipping. The Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, alongside other responsible nations, remains committed to supporting international peace and security. Furthermore, the Afghan government is committed to fulfilling and complying with the UN Security Council Resolutions, in particular resolutions 2255, 1988, 1267, and 2253; and calls on the Government of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan to abide by its international commitments and responsibilities and remain committed to fully implementing the stated UNSC resolutions.
The government and people of Afghanistan are committed to countering terrorist financing and achieving sustainable peace in the country. We fully believe that the UN Security Council Resolutions, particularly UNSCR 2513, alongside the regional and international consensus created by the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, have prepared the ground for achieving a just and lasting peace. The Islamic Republic of Afghanistan once again calls on the Taliban to immediately begin peace negotiations and, by ending the bloodshed and committing to lasting and dignified peace, avoid exposing themselves to further international sanctions.
