Jalil Abbas Jilani, the interim foreign minister of Pakistan, stated that his country is currently facing the biggest concern at present with an enhanced threat from terrorist organizations, including the Tehreek-e-Taliban (TTP) and ISIS-K (Islamic State – Khorasan Province).
Jalil Abbas Jilani said these words yesterday September 20, at the meeting of the Asian Society in New York.
He added that the Pakistani authorities have repeatedly shared their concerns with the Taliban and that the country is still in close communication with the Taliban authorities in this regard.
Acting Foreign Minister of Pakistan emphasized that terrorist outfits trying to gain a foothold in Afghanistan should be treated as a threat to the neighbourhood and the entire international community.
Jilani pointed out that Pakistan shared the international community’s concerns over the human rights situation in Afghanistan, especially issues related to women’s rights, girls’ education, and women’s employment.
Earlier, Pakistani officials claimed that the fighters of the Pakistani Taliban (TTP) plan their attacks on the country’s military inside Afghanistan, a matter that has been repeatedly denied by the Afghan Taliban.
After the Taliban regained control of Afghanistan, terrorist attacks and unrest in Pakistan have increased in an unprecedented manner.
