UN chief Ban Ki-moon condemns Taliban attack in Kabul

UN chief Ban Ki-moon on Tuesday strongly condemned a Taliban suicide truck bombing in central Kabul which left 30 people dead and hundreds injured.

“I would like to express my deepest condolences for the victims and their families and friends,” the UN secretary general said at a press conference during a visit to The Hague.

“I condemn strongly these terrorist attacks,” he said, adding “there’s no justification whatsoever (for) attacking civilian people as well as security people.”

The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack in a densely crowded Kabul neighbourhood, which came a week after the insurgents launched their annual spring offensive.

“We must fight against these terrorist attacks and the international community must be united in working together,” Ban said, speaking alongside Dutch Foreign Minister Bert Koenders.

Ban was in the Dutch city to take part in a ceremony to mark the official opening of the International Criminal Court later Tuesday, as well as celebrations for the 70th anniversary of the International Court of Justice.

    UN plays double standards, in reality they know where these people get organized, trained, equipped and commanded and financially supported. UN has the responsibility to put pressure on those countries which support such groups, put sanctions and etc. Just to release a statement saying we condemn this act is not the mandate of UN. Taliban, Al-qaida, ISIS and so on are controllable groups created by certain Intelligence Agencies and used for their strategic interest. UN has in-depth understanding and studies of these groups but kept silent. UN doesn’t condemn the human rights violation and other violations which bring disorder committed by certain countries. For example, Pakistan conterminously and blending firing rockets on Afghanistan territories in east, south east and south resulting casualties of hundreds of civilians and hundred thousand of IDPs and damages of Afghan houses but their is no reaction from UN and even they don’t address the complaints submitted by Afghan Government.
