The Pakistani government has issued a legal notice officially ordering and confirming full compliance with United Nations Security Council sanctions against the Afghan Taliban and another armed group, the Haqqani-specialized network, for the supply of armaments.
These measures include an asset freeze, a travel ban and an arms embargo against the Afghan insurgent group. This emerges from the statement from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs last Tuesday, which came into force on Friday evening.
Pakistan, which has been repeatedly accused of collaborating with the Taliban – allegations it has always denied – has claimed in the past that it fully complies with the United Nations Security Council sanctions against the group, but this time it’s about the first official announcement in this regard according to the newspaper “Dawn”.
Therefore, the Federal Government is pleased to order the full implementation of Resolution 2255 (of the Security Council of 2015) “with regard to the Taliban leaders and the affiliated companies listed in the attached appendix”.
