The U.N. Security Council has expressed concern over the Taliban’s threat to international and local aid workers in Afghanistan following the recent bombing of a U.N. compound in the Herat province.
The international body also reaffirmed its commitment to fighting all kinds of terrorism as mandated in its charter, says Xinhua News, the Chinese news agency.
Rubakana Ruganda, Uganda’s ambassador to Uganda and current president of the Security Council, made the remarks following a closed-door meeting between the 15 members of the council.
Four Taliban suicide bombers attacked the main U.N. compound in Herat Oct. 23. No U.N. staffer was killed in the attack.
