The US Embassy in Kabul has issued a resolution announcing that world diplomatic missions based in Kabul have called for an immediate end to the Taliban war. A resolution issued by the US Embassy reads: “Diplomatic missions of Australia, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Representatives of the European Union, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, the Netherlands, Representative Office NATO, Spain, Sweden, Britain and the United States’s senior civilian leaders in the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan have called for an immediate end to Taliban military offensive that thwarts a negotiated political solution and harms and displaces civilians. We condemn the continuing targeted killings throughout Afghanistan, the destruction of critical infrastructure, and the threats, declarations, and other actions against the achievements of Afghans over the past twenty years, which we have strongly supported. . ”


The other part of the resolution reads: “Taliban attacks, claiming to support a political settlement through negotiations and a peace process in Doha, are in complete contradiction. This has resulted in the killing of innocent Afghans. These include the continuation of targeted killings, the displacement of civilians, the looting and burning of buildings, the destruction of vital infrastructure and the damage to communications networks, the indiscriminate detention and killing of civilians, and the attack on prisons. In addition, in Taliban-occupied districts, residents and observers continue to work to suppress the human rights of women and girls and to shut down private and public media outlets to cover up human rights abuses, and “They report restricting freedom of expression.”


The resolution calls on all resident foreign missions to condemn acts that violate the human rights of the Afghan people. The resolution added: “Afghans have made great strides over the past 20 years and want to continue to make progress on development, human rights, and freedom of expression. We want to emphasize that progress has been made over the years. However, the past years will only last if all parties work together; we join the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan and call on the Taliban and all parties to end the violence immediately. Permanently and comprehensively agree and fully participate in the peace negotiations to end the suffering of the Afghan people and pave the way for a comprehensive political agreement that benefits all Afghans and ensures that Afghanistan is once again a refuge. Afghanistan will not become safe havens for the terrorists.”


The newsletter also emphasizes that the Taliban must lay down their arms forever on Eid al-Adha and show the world that they have the will to make peace in their country.
