Pakistan, which has been supporting the power of Taliban in Afghanistan, has suffered a major setback. The SAARC Foreign Ministers’ Meeting, which was scheduled to be held in New York on 25 September, has been canceled due to lack of consensus among member states on Afghanistan’s participation. This is because the Imran government had asked SAARC member states to allow the Taliban regime in Afghanistan to send a representative to the annual meeting of foreign ministers of the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation, which was denied by most of the SAARC member states. According to sources, the demand of Pakistan was strongly opposed by all the member countries of SAARC. Earlier SAARC meetings were held online due to Corona virus epidemic.
The meeting was to be held in New York on September 25
Let us tell you that the informal meeting of SAARC was to be held in New York on 25 September, however, Nepal’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a press release stating that, due to lack of consent of all the member states, this meeting has been canceled. According to reports, Pakistan’s support to the Taliban regime is becoming increasingly difficult. Pakistan’s insistence on being allowed to represent Afghanistan at the SAARC meeting shows how long Pakistan has been helping the Taliban. At the same time, the Pakistan government also emphasized that the Afghan government led by Ashraf Ghani will not represent Afghanistan in the SAARC meeting.
