The UN Security Council has once again issued a resolution, extending the unjustified foreign invasion in the country for one more year as it allowed aggression against the miserable Afghanistan nine years ago, by interpreting and explaining anew, article 7 of the Charter of the United Nations.

Similarly, the UNSC has raised the issue of civilian casualties in Afghanistan in its recent statements and has put the blame on the Mujahideen of the Islamic Emirate in an effort to please Washington. The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan believes, the resolutions and decisions of the Security Council are the main cause behind the current nine-years long tragedy and the flames of war in Afghanistan, therefore, the Islamic Emirate, as usual, condemns the recent decision of the Security Council.

The Islamic Emirate is of the opinion that the one-sided stand of UNSC is a great and unforgettable betrayal with the miserable people of Afghanistan. It is a pity that the UNSC, as a universal body, adds fuel to the flames of war and gives legitimacy to the extension of the mission while it should have worked for world security and human prosperity.

The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan believes the UNSC’s judgment about civilian casualties in Afghanistan is partial and biased. The Islamic Emirate on its part and for elucidation of the matter, has called on all human rights organizations and entities to constitute a joint comprehensive team to carry out an impartial survey in the whole country and declare the realities but unfortunately, the world’s organizations, particularly, the UNSC, instead of conducting investigation into the matter, passes decision that do not stand on facts. It seems the UNSC wants to distract the attention of the public of the world from the ground realities in Afghanistan by its resorting to blind judgments and accusations.

In our view, the UNSC, on the basis of its principles, should not contribute to the prolongation of war in Afghanistan by passing such decisions but should work for ending the war and occupation in the country by using its caliber. This will restore its lost credibility and meanwhile, save the Afghans from the fire of the unjustified and imposed war.
