UN condemns Taliban spring offense announcement

17 Apr 2019 Raha Press

The

statement says that members of the Security Council recognized the Afghan

people’s strong desire for sustainable peace in Afghanistan. They underscored

that calls for more fighting will not advance the goal of making a sustainable

peace.

 

The members of the Security Council called on all parties to

the conflict to seize the opportunity to begin an inclusive intra-Afghan

dialogue and negotiations that result in a political settlement.

 

The members reiterated the importance of an inclusive

Afghan-led and-owned peace process for the long-term prosperity and stability

of Afghanistan, and expressed their full support for the Afghan Government’s

efforts to that end.

 

They also eiterated that, as mandated by the Security

Council, the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) and the

Special Representative of the Secretary-General stand ready to provide their

good offices to support the Afghan-led and Afghan-owned peace process, if

requested by and in close consultation with the Afghan Government.

 

The annual spring offensive traditionally marks the start of

the so-called fighting season, though the announcement is largely symbolic as

in recent winters the Taliban has continued fighting Afghan and US forces.
