On Monday, August 30, 2021, the UN Security Council adopted a resolution on the situation in Afghanistan. The Council condemned the "deplorable attacks" near the Hamid Karzi Airport in Kabul and "[d]emand[ed] that Afghan territory not be used to threaten or attack any country or to shelter or train terrorists, or to plan or to finance terrorist attacks." It called on "all parties to allow full, safe, and unhindered access for the United Nations" and other humanitarian actors and encouraged the reaching of an "inclusive, negotiated political settlement . . . that responds to the desire of Afghans to sustain and build on Afghanistan's gains over the last twenty years in adherence to the rule of law." The Council also noted the Taliban's statement on August 27 of this year that Afghans would be free to travel abroad unimpeded, highlighting its expectation that the Taliban will adhere to this statement. Finally, the Council expressed concern regarding intelligence indications that the area may suffer additional terrorist attacks and called on relevant parties to strengthen security in the area.
