UNITED NATIONS: United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Monday called on the Afghan Taliban to prevent terrorist organisations from attacking Pakistan or any other neighbouring country from the Afghan territory, saying the UN was in discussions with the de facto authorities in this regard.

“We consider that it is absolutely essential for the Taliban not to allow any form of terrorist activity that might have an impact in relation to Pakistan, as in relation to any other country of the region,” the UN chief said in response to a question regarding the stepped-up cross-border terrorist attacks from the TTP against Pakistan that have resulted in many casualties.
