France, Britain to Propose ‘Safe Zone’ in Kabul at UNSC Meeting

France and Britain are expected to propose a resolution for the establishment of a safe zone in Kabul at an emergency meeting on Afghanistan of the United Nations Security Council which will be held on Monday.

French President Emmanuel Macron has said the proposal for the creation of a safe zone is aimed to allow humanitarian assistance and safe passage for people trying to leave Afghanistan.

According to Macron, the safe zone will operate under the oversight of the United Nations.

“It can mobilize the whole international community, and it also puts pressure on the Taliban,” Macron said.

The Taliban has responded to France and Britain, saying the creation of a safe zone in Kabul is unnecessary.

“When you create a safe zone in a time of peace, it means the country is not secure. In the past, around 300 to 400 people were killed daily, but today no one is being killed in the entire country,” said Sayed Akbar Agha, a former Taliban commander.
