The Conflict in Afghanistan

  • Foreign Relations

October 13th, 2021

At the last United Nations General Assembly, no representative from Afghanistan spoke, but the country was mentioned in all of the speeches.
45 days after the Taliban takeover of Kabul after two decades of US control, the situation in Afghanistan inspired the chiefs of state who spoke in New York to call for humanitarian aid and respect for human rights and share concerns about terrorism. It cannot be ruled out that the country may once again become a terrorist safe place and inspire a new jihadist wave in the world.
