NEWS DESK February 11, 2021


Pakistan on Thursday asked the Sanctions Committee of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) to take immediate action against the Indian agencies sponsoring terrorism in the country.

"We call on the Committee to initiate immediate action against Indian agencies involved in the sponsorship of terrorism against Pakistan," Pakistan's Permanent Representative to United Nations Ambassador Munir Akram said in a series of tweets.

The envoy added, "the Indian statement is a clear manifestation of its role as a spoiler in the Afghanistan peace process. Contrary to int'l community’s consensus of finding a political solution to Afghan conflict,India wants to prolong it by supporting terrorist groups like TTP & JuA."

He was referring to Indian ambassador to the UN Tirumurti's statement, wherein he accused Islamabad of nurturing 'safe-havens' of terrorists and having links with them.

"Pakistan has provided irrefutable evidence of India’s support and financing of UN-listed TTP&JuA to UNSC 1267 Sanctions Committee."

Ambassador Akram further said that "the Indian role in supporting terrorist groups also raises questions on its so-called impartiality as the Chair of the 1988 Taliban Sanctions Committee. The Security Council must not allow India to derail the ongoing Intra-Afghan Negotiations."

Concluding, he said, "Contrary to the Indian allegations in the UNSC briefing today, recent UN reports validate Pakistan’s actions against all terrorist group."

On February 3, the 27th Report of the UN Analytical and Monitoring Team noted the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) was reported to have overseen a reunification of splinter groups in Afghanistan.

It also confirmed that Pakistan had made arrests of individuals engaged in the terrorism financing and frozen the assets of designated individuals and entities.
