India at the United Nations Security Council meeting has called for inclusive dispensation in Afghanistan which represents all sections of Afghan society. India urged the international community to rise above partisan interests and come together for assistance in Afghanistan. India’s Ambassador to the UN TS Tirumurti said that New Delhi is willing to coordinate with other stakeholders to work towards enabling the expeditious provision of much-needed assistance to the people of Afghanistan. Mr Tirumurti said that one of India’s immediate priorities is to evacuate stranded people as well as ensure their free movement.
He also said that terrorism continues to pose a serious threat to Afghanistan and the region. He said that the Security Council Resolution 2593 notes the commitment of the Taliban not to allow the use of Afghan soil for terrorism, including those designated under UNSCR 1267.
