Threatened to attack embassies
During this, Vladimir Voronkov, Under-Secretary-General of the United Nations Office of Counter-Terrorism, will present this report released last week. The report said that ISIL-K positioned itself as the ‘primary rival’ of the Taliban and allegedly wanted to show that the Taliban were not capable of providing security in the country. It added, ‘ISIL-K wanted to undermine relations between the Taliban and member states of the region by targeting various diplomatic missions.’ “The group also threatened terrorist attacks on the embassies of China, India and Iran in Afghanistan,” the report said.

Indian technical team in Kabul
India had withdrawn its officials from the mission after the Taliban returned to power in Afghanistan. Ten months later, in June last year, India sent a technical team to the embassy in Kabul. The report referred to the ‘Delhi Declaration’ adopted at a special meeting of the United Nations Counter-Terrorism Committee in India last year on combating the use of new and emerging technologies for terrorist purposes.
