SAARC meet cancelled as Pakistan pushes for Taliban's participation

The SAARC Meet was due on September 25 on the sidelines of the UNGA meet.

 

Amidst the ongoing power tussle in Afghanistan, the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) Foreign Ministers meet for 2021 has been cancelled due to ill manoeuvres of Pakistan.

 

According to sources, Pakistan wanted the Taliban to represent Afghanistan, which was a participant of the SAARC meeting of foreign ministers. They added that despite denial by all, Pakistan insisted on the participation of Taliban.

 

The SAARC Meet was due on September 25 on the sidelines of the UNGA meet.

 

All SAARC countries have slammed Pakistan’s request, dismissing any official representation of the terror outfit that took over Kabul earlier on August 15 through brutal violence and siege.

 

Ever since the Taliban seized control of Afghanistan, Pakistan has been sympathising with the terror organisation and is backing its brutal regime.
