UN Security Council adopts resolution on Afghanistan
The draft resolution in the UN Security Council was supported by 13 countries, Russia and China abstained, Kazpravda.kz reports with reference to Deutsche Welle.
The UN Security Council on Monday, August 30, backed a resolution calling for Afghans wishing to leave the country and foreign nationals to do so in a safe way.
The draft resolution in the UN Security Council was supported by 13 countries, while Russia and China abstained. At the same time, the UN Security Council did not support the creation of a security zone in Kabul, proposed earlier by France.
The document also contains a demand for the Taliban (banned in Kazakhstan - editor's note) to ensure the observance of human rights in Afghanistan, especially the rights of women, children and minorities. In addition, the international community demands from the new authorities not to obstruct the access of humanitarian aid to the country.
The resolution was submitted for consideration by Great Britain, Germany and France. It "calls for the provision of safe departure for those leaving Afghanistan." Natalie Estival-Broadhurst, Deputy Permanent Representative of France to the UN, speaking after the vote, explained that the appeal concerns both air travel and the movement of people across the land borders of Afghanistan. "The Taliban movement has assumed certain obligations. Now it must fulfill them," the diplomat said.
