After Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan urged for nations to cooperate with the Taliban, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi told the United Nations on Saturday (September 25) that no country should profit from the chaos in Afghanistan.
Mr Modi’s speech comes after India chastised Pakistan in Washington and at the United Nations General Assembly, where the rivals fought over Mr Khan’s statement late Friday accusing India of waging a “rule of terror” on Muslims.
“It is critical to guarantee that Afghanistan’s land is not exploited to promote terrorism or carry out terrorist acts,” Mr Modi added. “We must also be vigilant to ensure that no country attempts to use the sensitive situation in the region for its own selfish purposes.”
According to Indian sources, the Indian Prime Minister addressed concerns about Pakistan during meetings with US President Joe Biden on Friday, as well as at a larger four-way summit with the leaders of Australia and Japan. After the White House meetings, Foreign Secretary Harsh Vardhan Shringla told reporters, “There was a strong feeling that a more thorough look, a more careful assessment and monitoring of Pakistan’s involvement in Afghanistan – Pakistan’s role on the problem of terrorism – had to be retained.”
Despite worldwide dissatisfaction in a temporary Cabinet, Mr Khan told the General Assembly that the Taliban had vowed to protect human rights and establish an inclusive government since assuming power last month.
“It will be a win-win situation for everyone if the international community incentivizes and pushes them to walk their talk,” he added.
