Russia Supports U.S.-British Anti-Terror Action In Afghanistan - 7 October, 2001 - News

Russia supports US-British anti-terror action in Afghanistan. Terrorism is a formidable threat to global peace and security, and must be counteracted by all means complying with the United Nations Charter. The international community is at one on that point, Russia's Ministry of Foreign Affairs says in a statement. Russia has been duly notified about anti-terror action taking start, adds the ministry. The Afghan developments directly follow from the Taliban policies, which have turned the country into the world's principal centre of international terrorism, extremism and drug traffic, and the biggest drug manufacturer. The regime is making war on its own nation and the lawful Afghan government. The Taliban are opposed to the entire world. The area under their control is a den of terrorists guilty of crimes perpetrated in many countries--Russia among them. These are tragic days for the Afghans. Together with the entire world community, Russia is appealing to responsible political forces in Afghanistan to pool efforts and together get their country out of a formidable crisis and work for its democratic future. The efforts demand an extensive dialogue within Afghanistan, and Russia is willing to do all it can to promote such a dialogue, says the statement. As before, Russia is determined to assist the internationally recognised Afghan government and its armed forces. The pledge fully concerns humanitarian aid, which will go on. Russia has more than once called for concerted efforts against terrorism as it is challenging the entire civilised world. The UN Security Council unanimously adopted its resolution No. 1373 to make a stride in the right direction. Now is the time to resolutely come out against evil. Wherever they might be basing--in Afghanistan, Chechnya, the Middle East or the Balkans--terrorists must realise that they will not escape justice, stresses the Foreign Ministry.
