Taliban’s coming to power in Afghanistan has returned the threat of world terrorism to the global agenda. This was stated by the Chief Scientific Secretary of the National Academy of Sciences of Tajikistan, Chairman of the Society for Friendship and Cultural Relations of Tajikistan and Afghanistan, Doctor of Historical Sciences, Professor Kosimsho Iskandarov in an interview with Khovar Director Saidali Siddik.

According to him, there is every reason to believe that the country, as one of the hottest spots on the planet, will plunge into even greater anarchy, it may again become a center for training terrorists, drug trafficking and weapons.

In support of this statement Iskandarov recalls the speech of President Emomali Rahmon in the general debates of the 76th Session of the UN General Assembly, where quotes: “The peaceful people of Afghanistan are faced with terror today. Various terrorist groups are actively using the unstable military and political situation in Afghanistan to strengthen their position.”

“As our President also stressed the situation could worsen even more if urgent measures are not taken,” he mentioned.

According to him, the UN and superpowers should demand that the Taliban fulfill their promises, form an inclusive government, respect the rights of women and national minorities, as well as fight against international terrorism and drug trafficking.

While answering to question about what will happen if the «Taliban» * does not do so?, Iskandarov said that then Afghanistan must be ready for the next stage of a bloody civil war, that’s for sure.

“Then it will be necessary to enter the UN peacekeeping force in Afghanistan,” he noted.

“This is not currently in the plans, but plans can change, and change very quickly. This is normal. Then, only after eliminating the “Taliban”* and holding free elections under the supervision of peacekeepers can we expect something positive,” Iskandarov concluded.
