The United Nations has said in a report that the ‘Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant-Khorasan’ (ISIL-K) has threatened terrorist attacks against the embassies of India, Iran and China in Afghanistan. He said that by targeting them, the terror group seeks to undermine relations between the Taliban and UN member states in the Central and South Asian region. This was revealed in a report by the UN Secretary General, Antonio Guterres, on the threat posed by ISIL.
The Secretary General’s 16th report on the threat that ISIL (Daesh) poses to international peace and security and the efforts of the United Nations to assist Member States in countering this threat states that there is a major terrorist threat in Asia and the intention of the group to carry out its external operations. remains intact.” The Security Council will hold a meeting on Thursday on ‘Threats to international peace and security due to terrorist acts’.
During this, Vladimir Voronkov, Deputy Secretary General of the United Nations Office against Terrorism, will present this report released last week. The report said that ISIL-K positioned itself as the Taliban’s “main rival” and allegedly wanted to show that the Taliban could not provide security in the country. He added that “ISIL-K wanted to undermine relations between the Taliban and member states in the region by attacking various diplomatic missions.”
“The group also threatened terror attacks against the Chinese, Indian and Iranian embassies in Afghanistan,” the report said. India had withdrawn its officials from the mission after the Taliban returned to power in Afghanistan. Ten months later, in June last year, India sent a technical team to the embassy in Kabul.
The report refers to the “Delhi Declaration” adopted at a special meeting of the United Nations Counter-Terrorism Committee in India last year on combating the use of new and emerging technologies for terrorist purposes. The report also took note of the declaration adopted under the Indian presidency of the Security Council in December 2022, in which the adoption of the Delhi Declaration was welcomed.
