Kahn: The “new reality” established in Afghanistan by the Taliban takeover and the withdrawal of foreign troops: SCO Prime Minister Pakistan

Islamabad: Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan said Friday that a “new reality” had been established in Afghanistan after the Taliban seized power in Kabul. The situation is stable in a war-torn country.
At the 20th Shanghai Cooperation Organization Head of State Council (SCO-CHS) Summit in Dushanbe, the capital of Tajikistan, Mr. Khan said that all Afghan people would never be a safe haven for terrorists. He said it was important to respect the rights.
Pakistan, which was suffering from the spillover and instability of the conflict in Afghanistan, was reportedly interested in peaceful and stable Afghanistan, he said by the Dawn newspaper.
Prime Minister Khan said a “new reality” had been established in Afghanistan after the Taliban hijacked and withdrew foreign troops.
“It should be a matter of security that this happened without bloodshed, without a civil war, and without a mass outflow of refugees.
“It is now in the collective interest of the international community to ensure that there are no new conflicts in Afghanistan and that security conditions are stable,” he said.
Kahn said it was imperative to provide Afghan humanitarian assistance without delay as it was time to confront the Afghan people to help them get out of their current challenges.
“It must be remembered that the Afghan government relied primarily on foreign aid,” he said.
He said the Taliban rulers should do their promise well.
“The Taliban must fulfill its promises above all for a comprehensive political structure represented by all ethnic groups, which is essential for the stability of Afghanistan,” he said.
Kahn said Afghanistan cannot “control from the outside.”
The prime minister said it would be unwise to spread denial or indulge in propaganda at this critical juncture, undermine the outlook for peace and harm the people of Afghanistan.
He also praised SCO for completing 20 years and said Pakistan would continue to play its role as a member of the group.
Eight SCO groups from China, Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, India and Pakistan are hosting their 21st summit in Dushanbe.
Afghanistan is an SCO observer.
The Taliban seized power in Afghanistan on August 15, two weeks before the United States completely withdrew its troops on August 31, after a costly 20-year war. This forced Afghan President Ashraf Ghani to flee the country to the UAE.
Taliban militants attacked Afghanistan and occupied all major cities within a few days. The dissolution of Afghan security forces trained and equipped by the United States and its allies.
Thousands of Afghan citizens and aliens have fled the new Taliban regime, fleeing for asylum in various countries, including the United States and many European countries, causing complete turmoil and death.
