The United Nations Security Council on Monday called for talks in order to create new Afghan Government in order to put an end to the fighting, abuse and turbulent times in Afghanistan.

United Nations Security General Antonio Guterres warned against the ‘chilling’ as Taliban has curbed human rights and could play havoc against women and girls.

The 15-member council agreed by Consensus on Monday as Guterres pleaded to use ‘all tools available to put an end to global threat in Afghanistan’ and ensure respect of human rights.

“We cannot and must not abandon the people of Afghanistan,” Guterres stated before the Security Council.

The Security Council focused on the importance of fighting terrorism in Afghanistan to make sure that other Countries were not targeted and stated that “Neither the Taliban nor any other Afghan group or individual should support terrorists operating on the territory of any other country”.

Under Taliban rule between 1996 and 2001, women lived in deplorable conditions they were not allowed to work and attend schools, had to cover their faces, and step out only in the company of a male relative.

“Attacks against civilians or civilian objects must stop. The human rights and fundamental freedoms of all Afghan citizens, especially women, girls, and members of minority groups, must be respected,” US Ambassador to the United Nations Linda Thomas-Greenfield stated before the Council.

However, Taliban Officials have issued Statements aimed at restoring Peace and Order.
