    un blames pakistan for afghan problems


    UNITED NATIONS—United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan has blasted Pakistan for militarily helping Taliban and fuelling conflict in Afghanistan.

    Condemning the involvement of “external players of various sorts” for fuelling the conflict, Annan singled out Pakistan for sharp criticism in this connection.

    “It is deeply distressing that significant non-Afghan personnel, largely from Pakistani madrasas, are not only taking active part in the fighting and most, if not all, are on the side of the Taliban”, but “there also appears to be outside involvement in the planning and logistical support of their military operations”, Annan said in a report released, reports PTI.

    But he did see a “glimmer of hope” for the “long suffering” country in the recent agreement between warring parties and said the international support is essential in the “difficult quest for pace.”

    The agreement, he noted, committed the United Front and Taliban to the United Nations-sponsored negotiations. But this is “only a first step in what will at best be a long and difficult journey towards peace.”

    Annan said if, “as we must hope”, political initiatives succeed in starting substantive negotiations, it will be necessary to sharply increase the diplomatic capacity of the UN special mission to Afghanistan.—NNI

            Kofi sahib is playing to his masters (the USA) rather than the 186 UN member states or else he would be more balanced in his statements and blame all the powers who allegedly or actually interfere in Afghanistan.

            Where do the Northern alliance get their weapons from? - Russaia, India, Iran, Tajikistan etc.


            Out of respect for rivkz I have given my answer. But I agree with the rest about the UN!

                I think Islamic world should pull out of the UN and have only one seat in UN for OIC.

                  Musalman just relayed my sentiments.
                  I seriously think that Pakistan should pull out of the UN....its a useless body, meant to provide the US with a seperate weapon, in addition to the ones US has on its own. When US runs out of options on its own, it uses the UN to buy more options.
                  And Kofi Annan is perhaps the sorriest secretary general the UN has ever had. I still havent been able to chronicle any achievement on his part. Wearing a suit and flying off to a disaster area doesnt qualify u as a sec. gen. Someone needs to tell him that.

                            I know. That's why India never talks about UN resolutions on Kashmir

                              But I can bet you, if the tide were to be turned, India would be at UNs doorstep first thing in the morning.

                              UN has become a useless body. UN resolutions are passed in good faith, and their thoughts do revolved around world peace. But the reason UN is useless is because UN does not have any practical authority over the world. If they cant implement their resolutions, what good are they? Why even pass them and give people false hope to begin with? The answer is that the UN is made to provide the US with a legal cover for all its international crimes.

                              As for the Kashmir issue, I think the kashmiries realized it a long time ago that the resolution that was passed for Kashmir was mere window dressing. That is why they have been forced to take things into their own hands.
