The Afghan Taliban in response to the recent request made by Afghan Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah for inclusion of the Taliban leaders’ names in the United Nations’ black list, said in a statement on Wednesday that the multi-headed Kabul government which is about to downfall is trying to assure its legitimacy by such useless requests.
About the same time last year, chief for one part of Kabul government (Ashraf Ghani) asked the visiting UN officials to include the names of top Afghan Taliban leaders including Mullah Akhundzade. This year the same request made by the other chief (Abdullah) when the same UN officials entered Kabul, Taliban said.
The militants furthered in their statement that “black lists made by the US or the UN in which they put the names of their un-favorites is not something new. Enemies of the Afghan Taliban have used such tools in the past as well and have questioned the impartiality of the UN before.”
The Taliban added that by such incorrect political attempts, the UN has created even more chaos in the world rather than resolving issues of the world and has questioned its neutrality.
Multi-headed and illegitimate Kabul regime which is declining to downfall is making such useless requests in order to assure its legitimacy, but the Afghan people will never want such a regime. The Kabul government has had no achievements but has lost its credibility in the world and is distributing sectarian violence in Afghanistan and is deeply polluted with corruption, the Taliban said.
They also added that the UN should reject such illogical suggestions as they (the UN officials) have kept inviting the Taliban for peace talks; but on the other hand, they are saying they will give thoughts on the suggestions of Kabul regime.
