UN: Lavrov calls for ‘external help’ to fight terror in Afghanistan

United Nations, New York City
September 25, 2019 at 17:15 GMT +00:00 · Published

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov warned that Northern Afghanistan was at risk of turning into a new foothold of militants headed by the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS; formerly ISIS/ISIL), speaking at a UN Security Council meeting in New York City on Wednesday.

Lavrov emphasised the need for external assistance to Afghanistan in overcoming the threat.

The US-led invasion into Afghanistan began in 2001, and has so far claimed the lives of hundreds of thousands of people.

Latest attempts to end the 18-year conflict finished earlier this month after US President Donald Trump called off planned talks with the Taliban over an attack in the Afghan capital Kabul on September 6, which killed a US soldier and 11 others.
