Act on ‘Kabul Evidence’ Against  Islamabad, UNSC Urged

KABUL - Some Meshrano Jirga or Senate members on Tuesday asked the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) ‘to act against Pakistan in line with the documents and evidence provided by the Afghan government.’
The call from upper house members comes a day after a full-member UNSC team returned from a three-day visit to Kabul. During its visit, the UN team held meetings with Afghan leaders and assessed the country’s overall security situation.
Some sources claim the Afghan government handed over some documented proofs to the UNSC delegation regarding Pakistan’s interference in Afghanistan’s affairs and the alleged terrorist safe havens.
Speaking at today’s Senate session, lawmaker Mohammad Rahim Hassanyar said: “I hope the UNSC team would expose Pakistan’s real face to the world with the help of evidence provided to them by the Afghan side and take practical steps against Islamabad,” he said.
ZalmaiZabuli, another senator from southern Zabul province, said: “Now the UNSC should honestly cooperate with the people of Afghanistan after having received documents regarding Pakistan’s support to terrorist organizations. The UN should put more pressure on Pakistan to relinquish support to terrorist outfits.”
Mohammad Asif Sediqui, deputy speaker of the Senate, said the UNSC should take practical steps against Pakistan over its continued support to terrorist organizations.
Senate Chairman FazalHadiMuslimyar, who also met the UNSC team, said the visiting delegation was clearly told that terrorist organizations active in Pakistan ‘enjoyed’ safe havens in Pakistan and gained support from across the Durand Line.
He said the Afghan side handed over some documents as evidence of Pakistan’s interference in Afghanistan’s affairs, support to terrorist outfits, artillery shelling inside Afghanistan’s territory and fencing of the Durand Line.
He hoped the UNSC would take tangible steps against Pakistan’s support to terrorism and help Afghanistan and the region get rid of terrorists. (Pajhwok)
