Safe havens' inside Afg, not outside: Lodhi tells UNSC2017/06/23
NEW YORK: Pakistan has told the U.N. Security that the Afghan Taliban's "safe havens" are inside, not outside, Afghanistan, given the large areas they control in that war-torn country.
Ambassador Maleeha Lodhi, permanent representative of Pakistan to the UN said during a debate on Afghanistan that the resilience of the insurgency led by the Taliban cannot be explained away by convenient references to external 'safe havens' or 'support centers'.
Pakistan, she asserted, was committed not to allow its territory to be used for terrorism against other countries. Pakistan's Zarb e Azb and the subsequent Raddul Fassad military operations had succeeded in eliminating all terrorist and militant groups from its tribal territory bordering Afghanistan.
She told the 15 member Council that Pakistan is "implementing border controls, including the fencing and monitoring of vulnerable sections of the Pakistan-Afghanistan border."
In response to some provocative remarks made by her Afghan counterpart during the debate, she said that "As a country that continues to host over two million Afghan refugees, Pakistan expects the gratitude and not hostility from the Afghan government."
The main thrust of Ambassdor Lodhi's remarks centered around the need for a negotiated end to the Afghan war. She said that it had been Pakistan's consistent position that peace could be restored only through a negotiated settlement between Kabul and the Tehrik-i-Taliban Afghanistan.
"This, she pointed out, 'has also long been the consensus of the international community," noting that a negotiated peace was also backed by UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, who recently visited Kabul.
She said that "the promotion of a political settlement and the pursuit of a military solution in Afghanistan are mutually incompatible."
Continued reliance on a military option, or enhancing troop numbers without an accompanying political strategy, would only lead to more violence and bloodshed, Ambassador Lodhi told the Security Council. "It would not yield a political settlement."
Stressing the need to find a negotiated solution, she said that "Over the years, Pakistan has done what it can, when asked, to help facilitate such a negotiated settlement." She referred in this regard to the 2015 Murree talks and efforts under the Quadrilateral Coordination Group (QCG) framework; as also her country's engagement with the Heart of Asia conference, International Contact Group, Moscow Format, and, most recently, the Kabul process, among others.-NNI
