News Story: Afghan Envoy Slams UN Policy Towards Pakistan

By Gulabuddin Ghubar

Mahmoud Saiqal, Afghanistan’s permanent representative to the United Nations, in an interview with TOLOnews said the UN Security Council (UNSC) is not ‘honest’ in coercing Pakistan to withdraw its support from terrorist groups. 

The Afghan envoy said some members of the council do not agree even to mention Pakistan as a country that supports terrorists. 

When we name Pakistan, we see they (some UNSC members) are not agreed. There are individuals who use terrorist groups for their personal interests,” said Saiqal.  

Saiqal accused Pakistan of supporting terrorists groups.  

“Terrorist attacks on the Supreme Court, on the Shaheen Military Corps, on Military Hospital and insome other places showed that the attacks were masterminded on the other side of the Durand Line,” he said.
