Twenty-two countries have called on the ruling Taliban to stop killing former members of Afghanistan’s security forces. This information was given in the report of BBC online on Sunday.
The United States and its allies have made the call in a joint statement. The statement called on the Taliban to honor its commitment not to harm the former Afghan government and members of the security forces.
“We are deeply concerned about reports of extrajudicial killings and disappearances in Afghanistan,” the statement said.
The joint statement came after a human rights group reported on killings, abductions and disappearances in Taliban-ruled Afghanistan.
The United States has issued a joint statement.
The statement was signed by the United Kingdom, the European Union and 19 other countries.
Earlier last week, the human rights organization Human Rights Watch released a report. More than 100 members of the country’s former government have been killed or abducted since the Taliban took power in Afghanistan about four months ago, the report said.
Between August 15 and October 31, 48 members of the country’s security forces who surrendered or were captured by the Taliban were killed, the report said.
After seizing power, the Taliban promised no harm to members of the previous government.
Twenty-two countries have expressed deep concern over the Human Rights Watch report. At the same time, they called for a full investigation into all extrajudicial killings and disappearances.
The statement concluded that they would continue to verify the Taliban through their actions.
