Afghan territory must not be used for terror activities, Delhi dialogue adopts declaration

Afghan territory must not be used for terror activities, the eight nations participating in the third Regional Security Dialogue on Afghanistan in New Delhi asserted in a joint declaration adopted on Wednesday.

“Afghanistan’s territory should not be used for sheltering, training, planning or financing any terrorist acts,” the joint declaration stated after the crucial meeting.

The five Central Asian countries — Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Uzbekistan — along with Russia, Iran and Bharat participated in the meeting, while China and Pakistan did not join the dialogue.

At the meeting chaired by Bharat’s National Security Advisor Ajit Doval, all the participants discussed the evolving situation in Afghanistan, especially the security situation and its regional and global ramifications. They also paid special attention to the current political situation in Afghanistan and the threats arising from terrorism, radicalisation and drug trafficking as well as the need for humanitarian assistance.

Without naming Pakistan, all the participating nations reiterated strong support for a peaceful, secure and stable Afghanistan while emphasising on respect for sovereignty, unity and territorial integrity and non-interference in its internal affairs.

Expressing deep concern over the sufferings of people in Afghanistan arising out of the security situation in the war-torn country, the member countries condemned in the strongest possible terms all the terrorist activities and reaffirmed their firm commitment to combat terrorism in all its forms and manifestations, including its financing, the dismantling of terrorist infrastructure and countering radicalisation, to ensure that Afghanistan would never become a safe haven for global terrorism.

The joint declaration also called for collective cooperation against the menace of radicalisation, extremism, separatism and drug trafficking in the region. Underscoring the need to form an open and truly inclusive government that represents the will of all the people of Afghanistan, which has representation from all sections of society in the administrative and political structure, the Delhi summit advocated for the successful national reconciliation process in the country.

Emphasising the importance of ensuring the fundamental rights of women, children and minority communities, it further said that the deteriorating socio-economic and humanitarian situation in Afghanistan is a matter of concern and also underlined the need to provide urgent humanitarian assistance to the people of Afghanistan directly, which must be distributed within the country in a non-discriminatory manner across all sections of the Afghan society.

The declaration further reiterated the importance of the dialogue and agreed to remain engaged with each other in the future, besides deciding to hold the next round in 2022.

Soon after the meeting ended, the seven foreign nations’ security representatives met Prime Minister Narendra Modi and appreciated Bharat’s initiative in organising the dialogue and conveyed the perspectives of their respective nations on the Afghanistan situation.

  1. It will be a fatal mistake if India believes Taliban, after signing a treaty, will not dispatch terrorists to other countries including India. Rather, India should remain much more alert that well-trained Taliban youths will be pushed across the Line of Control between India & Pakistan on an increasing scale.
    Talibans themselves are dreaded terrorists and they have been blacklisted by UNO as terror outfit. These branded terrorists sprout their wings by quick collaborating with other terrorist outfits like Al-Qaida, ISIS, JEM, Tehrik-e-Taliban (TTP) of Pakistan, LeT and so forth. And breed terrorists in thousands under the financial backup of Saudi Arabia.
    Pakistan will take this opportunity. Many Taliban youths are jobless. ISI will train them militarily and push them across Indo-Pak LOC under gunpoint. They’ll be forced to undertake multiple missions of terrorist attack on India. There will be no question of backing out, as in that event they’ll be gunned down by Pakistani militia. So the situation is alarming. Afghanistan is a failed state. It is ruled by terrorists. There is no food. No job. Mostly homeless. Out of sheer desperation Afghans have fled to neighboring countries like Iran, Kazakstan, Uzbekistan, Pakistan. It will give Pakistan a golden opportunity to train these die-hard Afghans to undertake missions of destruction. And India should keep this factor in mind!
