Afghanistan may lodge complaint against Pakistan in UN Security Council

KABUL - A high-level security delegation from Afghanistan has flown to Islamabad for talks with Pakistani officials on the recent spate of attacks by the Taliban in the country, TOLO News has reported.

The delegation will hand over evidence to the Pakistani government that shows recent attacks by the Taliban were planned in Pakistan.

If Pakistan does not cooperate in tackling the issue, Afghanistan will lodge a complaint with the UN Security Council, an official from the Afghan ministry of interior said on Wednesday.

“Measures are being taken by the Afghan government, especially the ministry of interior, who will share all available evidence with the UN security council and other countries involved in the process,” said MoI deputy spokesman Nusrat Rahimi.

But, military experts argue that Afghanistan would be better off presenting the evidence to the UN Security Council instead of taking it to Pakistan.

“The Pakistani government will once again reject the evidence; I think it should be shared with NATO, US and the UN security council,” said military expert Farooq Bashir.

“With consideration of experience of the last seventeen years, such trips have been seen in the past between diplomats and military officials from the two countries, but no outcomes have been achieved from this process,” said military analyst Mohammad Agul Mujahid.

According to security experts, internal elements who have been cooperating with militants must be exposed.

“We call on the intelligence agencies to identity the Pakistani agents and serve justice on them,” said political analyst Najib Kabuli.
