Kabul Needs Int’l Backing to Fight Terror

Tehran warned about the growing number of the self-styled Islamic State terrorists in Afghanistan, calling on the international community to aid Iran’s eastern neighbor in battling terrorism. Addressing a UN Security Council session on Afghanistan on Wednesday, Gholamali Khoshrou, Iran’s ambassador and permanent representative to the United Nations, said the unity government in Kabul is currently on the frontline of fighting terrorism and extremism, Press TV reported. Khoshrou said the IS-claimed terror attack that killed about 80 people during the July demonstration by Hazara Shias in Kabul is a clear sign of a “growing terrorist threat” in Afghanistan. “The onus is on the international community to help the Afghan government in its fight against terrorism and extremism as well as the security, political and economic challenges it is grappling with.” The senior diplomat said Iran condemns any terror activities by Taliban militants and other extremist groups, and stands by Kabul in its efforts to strengthen peace in the war-torn country. The comments come amid rising concerns that the IS, which is mainly active in Iraq and Syria, and backed by Saudi Arabia is now seeking to gain a foothold in Afghanistan’s troubled east.
