Under India’s Presidency, UNSC Adopts 7-Point Resolution On Afghanistan, China Russia Abstain

India had assumed the Presidency of the UN Security Council for the month of August. The country focused its attention on three major areas- maritime security, peacekeeping and counter-terrorism.

Seeing the ongoing humanitarian crisis unfolding in Afghanistan, the United Nations Security Council, under the current presidency of India, adopted a resolution on the war-torn country.

The resolution was tabled by the United States, alongside fellow permanent Council members France and the United Kingdom. It was adopted after 13 out of 15 Council members voted in favour, while permanent members Russia and China abstained from the voting.

The Foreign Secretary of India Harsh Vardhan Shringla spoke about the resolution and expects that the Taliban will adhere to commitments that it had made.

Permanent Representative of United States Linda Thomas- Greenfield laid down clear expectations regarding the future of Afghanistan.

The resolution also recognizes the importance of upholding human rights, including for women, children and minorities, in particular the Sikh and Hindu communities.

Shringla condemned the 26 August terrorist attack at the Kabul international airport and paid condolences to the Afghan nationals and US troops who lost their lives. 

When asked about India’s view on trade ties with Taliban, the foreign secretary did not clearly comment on the statement.

In an effort to retain its diplomatic presence, Taliban’s Foreign Affairs chief had stated that the militant group wants to maintain Afghanistan’s trade, economic and political relations with India.
