Afghanistan seeks Sri Lanka’s involvement as fighting escalates

By Easwaran Rutnam 

Afghanistan has called on Sri Lanka to get involved as the Taliban continues its fight to capture major cities. 

The Ambassador of Afghanistan to Sri Lanka, M. Ashraf Haidari said that Sri Lanka more than any other country can play a bigger role in the Afghan conflict.

He said that Sri Lanka can share its experience in the war against the LTTE to help Afghanistan deal with the Taliban.

Haidari said that Sri Lanka can also advise the international community on the impact a prolonged conflict will have on Afghanistan.

The Ambassador of Afghanistan to Sri Lanka expressed these views during a discussion hosted by Daily Mirror online on its ‘World News In Brief’ segment.

Haidari further said that India, which is currently engaged with Afghanistan on development and humanitarian work, can do more.

He called on India to bring more attention to the crisis as the current President of the UN Security Council.

The Ambassador also cautioned that if the Taliban consolidates its control in areas closer to the Chinese border the terrorists can be expected to launch attacks on China and Central Asia.

  1. The Taliban are propagators of the RELIGION OF PEACE. It would be politically incorrect for anyone to criticise them. Let them have their feudal society as long as they don’t interfere with the rest of us. And there is a snowflakes hope in hell of that not happening.

  2. “If the Taliban consolidates its control in areas closer to the Chinese border the terrorists can be expected to launch attacks on China and Central Asia.”

    That is the whole idea, this is why the US left. The US is not going to spend money to secure China’s investments, especially China’s BRI.

    China already caught up with the Taliban leaders, but I have a reservation on China-Taliban collaboration. I believe that ideology is much stronger in people’s mind than infrastructure developments. Those people rather die for their ideology than die for infrastructure developments. I have experienced this particular mindset among Tamils.
