 Afghanistan’s Mission to UN on the Victim of Terrorism Day


New York, 21 August 2021 (TDI): On the International Day of Remembrance and Tribute to Victims of Terrorism, Afghanistan Permanent Representative Ghulam M. Isaczai delivered a statement on behalf of the Group of Friends of Victims of Terrorism.

Afghan Permanent Representative honored the people who sacrificed their lives in fights against terrorism. Also, he emphasized the struggles of victims in terrorist attacks and stressed re-shaping their lives by helping them overcome past traumas. In this regard, he mentioned the countless people of Afghanistan who have lost their lives in the longstanding conflict in the country. He stressed that as the Taliban are in power in Afghanistan, they must comply with international rules and norms and maintain peace in the region by refraining from terrorist activities.

In addition, Ghulam Isaczai stated that international platforms are being established with the efforts of Group of Friends such as the forthcoming Global Congress of Victims of Terrorism. The platform will provide a voice to the unsung heroes who faced the ruinous effects of terrorism. They will be provided with the opportunity to share their stories and experiences at the international forum. He also lauded the efforts of the global community which lent its assistance to the countries which are affected by ever-evolving terrorism.

In 2017, Afghanistan Mission to UN put forward resolution 72/165 which designated 21st August as a day to remember and honor the victims of terrorism around the globe.
