The sanction against Taliban includes financial, travel and arms-trade restrictions on the group and its supporters.
“The Islamic Emirate strongly condemns the sanctions by the UNSC,” states a statement released by the group.
Taliban statement further states that the sanctions would have a negative impact on the peace process.
“We see the above obstacles created in front of peace as an intentional effort to sabotage the peace process,” the statement adds.
In another part of the statement, the group threatens to continue fighting until (according to them) an Islamic system is established.
The United Nations Security Council voted Monday to extend existing sanctions against the Taliban for another 18 months, expressing concerns about the deteriorating security situation in Afghanistan.
