Kabul (BNA) United Nations is the biggest and the most powerful international organization that has its own peculiarities and authorities and all member countries are required to observe its charter and decisions.
BNA political affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes Afghan government has complained Russia in United Nations, because that has permitted the members of Taliban representatives to travel to Moscow whose names are included in black list of UN and not yet removed from the black list.
Moscow recently hosted a session with participation of 10 members of Taliban under the leadership of Shir Mohammad Abas Stankzay and some Afghan politicians.
Afghan authorities say including Abas Stankzay four members of Taliban delegation were under UN sanctions that had not the right to travel to foreign countries.
Unfortunately, a number of countries including Russia ignoring the UN sanctions permitted members of the group to travel in to their countries which are a clear violation of UN instructions and decisions.
Based on UN charter the Security Council’s decisions are required to be executed by member countries, but Russia by repeated invitation from Taliban leadership and issuing visa for them has violated Security Council’s decisions as a member of UN.
Although Russia has called ensuring relation with Taliban finding a way for political settlement of Afghan problem, but it did not succeeded to restore peace and stability in to Afghanistan so far, but further equipped and encouraged Taliban in carrying their terrorist activities and killing innocent people.
Using Taliban as a means in foreign rivalries helped the group to promote their situation in world political deals.
While after 2001 a world gathering against terrorism formed. Russia, US, China, Iran, Saudi Arabia and Pakistan followed the same idea in defeating Taliban, passing the time and accelerating regional rivalries’ Taliban used as a means in the competitions by different countries to achieve their illegal objectives in the region.
Today Taliban have established their office in Doha use as their address, once they have been seen in Abo- Dhabi in another time they appear in Moscow. While UN has imposed sanctions against their tour to foreign countries in order to prevent terrorist groups to ensure relation with world organizations and countries.  
Although there are severe criticism against terrorist programs and viewpoints of terrorists among Muslim communities and advanced nations but the group still continues its barbaric and inhumane activities and say no to all humane demands.
The people who enjoy killing, terror, explosions and committing suicide attacks in Afghanistan and are not ready to desist from any destruction, receiving visa go to Moscow, Tehran and Islamabad having Pakistani pass port. It is really ridiculous.
Afghan people sustaining 40 year imposed war, cordially ask the world countries to act against terrorism legally and honestly and not allow terrorist to play with the destiny of Afghan innocent people any more,
