Taliban’s Choice: Pakistan or TTP?

8am: The relationship between the Taliban and Pakistan has indeed soured, but it cannot be claimed that the two sides have turned their backs on each other, especially Islamabad, which has always advocated for Kabul’s obedience. A less costly option for Pakistan than military intervention is tacit attention to anti-Taliban fronts, which it does not do, as the Taliban Emirates are still favorable to it.

Afghan Migrants Complain on Harassment and Arrest in Iran

Tolo News: “The Iranian police treat us very badly. If they catch any Afghan in the park or on the road, they take away his phone and money, everything he has, and if he has nothing on him, they transfer him to a camp,” Akbar Sultani, one of the Afghan migrants in Iran, told TOLO news.

Pervasive Executions: Taliban’s Vendetta in the Guise of ‘Qisas’

8am: Last Thursday, the Taliban’s Supreme Court announced that they had executed two individuals publicly on charges of murder at the Ghazni football stadium. The public execution of these two individuals, witnessed by thousands, has provoked widespread domestic and international reactions. However, findings from the Hasht-e Subh Daily indicate that the public execution of one of these two individuals in Ghazni was carried out for revenge. Sources suggest that this person was executed by the Taliban court for killing a Taliban militant seven years ago, who attempted to sexually assault the wife of his brother. Sources state that Sayed Jamal, thereafter, killed a Taliban militant who had gone to his brother’s house at night and attempted to sexually assault his brother’s wife. A resident of Sayedabad district, Maidan Wardak province, confirmed to the Hasht-e Subh Daily that the incident of the militant’s killing by Sayed Jamal dates back to seven years ago. According to this local source, when a Taliban militant attempted to assault Sayed Jamal’s brother’s wife, Sayed Jamal attacked him with a knife and killed him.

IEA rebuffs Russia’s claim of terrorists in Afghanistan being ‘a threat to Central Asia’

Ariana: In a meeting with senior military officials, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu called Afghanistan the “biggest threat” to the countries of Central Asia and said that the situation in Central Asia is still complicated. He said in the last year, the number of Daesh fighters in Afghanistan has increased by 15 percent. Shoigu added that Daesh seeks to spread extremist ideas in Central Asia and tries to carry out subversive activities along the southern borders of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO), and it must be stopped. About two weeks ago, Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev claimed that there are at least 20 terrorist organizations and more than 23,000 fighters in Afghanistan and that the United States is responsible for the current difficult situation in Afghanistan.

Iran to block border with Afghanistan with concrete wall

Khaama: The ambassador and special representative of Iran for Afghanistan stated that it is planned for the border blockade of that country with Afghanistan to be in the form of a concrete wall. Kazemi Qomi, Iran’s special representative for Afghanistan, in an interview with the Iranian news agency ISNA regarding the issue of physical blockade of the border between Iran and Afghanistan, said that studies are underway on how to physically block the border. This Iranian diplomat reminded us that the border blockade with Afghanistan is not solely due to preventing the entry of illegal immigrants and combating human and drug trafficking, etc. He said, “Considering that the enemies of the people are seeking to strike us in various ways, including through the mobilization of proxy terrorist forces, we are not necessarily confronted with the demarcated borders of the two countries but with various terrorist elements at the border, which are supported by major powers that currently use both soft and hard power simultaneously to strike at us; therefore, we must take our border security and control more seriously.” Click here to read more (external link).

Pakistan Firmly Asserts Durand Line Sovereignty in Face of Taliban’s Stark Rejection

Khaama: In a vivid manifestation of escalating tensions, Asif Durrani, Pakistan’s special envoy to Afghanistan, has emphatically dismissed the Taliban’s contentious stance on the Durand Line, underscoring Islamabad’s rigid position on the historic border dispute. This sharp exchange marks a significant heightening in the long-standing discord over the demarcation that has been a point of contention between Afghanistan and Pakistan for decades. Durrani articulated his staunch rebuttal in response to the inflammatory assertions made by Sher Mohammad Abbas Stanikzai, the Deputy Minister for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Taliban, who categorically stated Afghanistan’s refusal to recognize the Durand Line as the official boundary. Speaking to Afghanistan International in Doha, Durrani declared, “For Pakistan, the matter of the Durand Line is conclusively settled,” unequivocally affirming the line as the official and internationally recognized border separating the two nations.

At Afghanistan Meeting, UN’s Guterres Pledges Work To Appoint Envoy

By RFE/RL’s Radio Azadi February 19, 2024 UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on February 19 told a press conference at a two-day UN-sponsored meeting of more than two dozen nations but not including Taliban representatives in the Qatari capital to discuss the “evolving situation” in Afghanistan that he is starting consultations toward appointing a UN envoy to coordinate engagement between Kabul and the international community. The Doha gathering is also aimed at discussing possible international engagement since the Taliban took control of Afghanistan in mid-2021. Guterres held closed-door sessions with the representatives of several nations and organizations on the meeting’s first day. Mahbouba Seraj, a civil-society and women’s rights representative who is in Doha along with a number of other Afghan participants not affiliated with the Taliban-led government, told Radio Azadi that priority topics on day two would include the plight of women and girls under the Taliban. She expressed hope that hers and other women’s voices will “finally be heard, that this issue will be followed up on, and indeed someone” will take up the cause of Afghan women, who are routinely discriminated against and isolated under the hard-line fundamentalist Taliban. Girls above the sixth grade have been barred from attending school, universities are closed to women, and work in the nongovernmental sector and among most government bodies has been banned for women, in addition to other restrictions. The Taliban leadership declined the invitation from the UN Department of Political Affairs and Peacebuilding (DPPA) to attend the gathering. Guterres said the Taliban set unacceptable conditions for attending the meeting, including the barring of Afghan civil society members and de facto recognition of the Taliban as Afghanistan’s legitimate rulers. “I received a letter with a set of conditions to be present in this meeting that were not acceptable,” Guterres told a news conference. “These conditions denied us the right to talk to other representatives of Afghan society and demanded a treatment that, to a large extent, would be similar to recognition.” Russia also said via its embassy in Afghanistan that it wouldn’t send a delegation to the Qatari meeting. Moscow said it was acting “at the request of the Afghan authorities” and would not join “so-called Afghan civil activists, whose selection, by the way, was conducted nontransparently behind Kabul’s back.” Organizers said participants from 25 nations and groups would include those from “Afghanistan, the wider region, and beyond.” “Other regional organizations working actively on Afghanistan such as the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, the European Union, and the Shanghai Cooperation Organization” were also expected to be there. The Taliban-led government remains overwhelmingly unrecognized internationally since taking over following the withdrawal in mid-2021 of the U.S.-led international coalition that spent two decades in Afghanistan after the events of 9/11. The Taliban’s Foreign Ministry on February 17 said that due to the nonacceptance of its demands, it did not consider participation in the Doha meeting to be fruitful, expressing anger over the planned appearance of non-Taliban Afghan representatives at the sessions. The Taliban has long had a representative office in Qatar. The DPPA said the current session would “take place in the context of Security Council resolution 2721 (2023), which encourages member states to consider increasing international engagement in the country, with the objective of a ‘clear end state of an Afghanistan at peace with itself and its neighbors, fully reintegrated into the international community, and meeting international obligations.’” The gathering is the second such meeting organized by the UN in the past year following a session in May 2023.
