The New Delhi declaration is the first statement from BRICS since the US withdrawal from Afghanistan

Leaders of BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa) on Thursday expressed concern over the emerging situation in Afghanistan, although they stopped short of naming or putting the blame on the Taliban.

The leaders called for all parties in Afghanistan to refrain from violence and to settle the situation through peaceful means, reports The Indian Express.

In a statement dubbed the New Delhi declaration, the BRICS leaders also stressed the need for “inclusive intra-Afghan dialogue.”

The declaration said: “We underscore the priority of fighting terrorism, including preventing attempts by terrorist organisations to use Afghan territory as terrorist sanctuary and to carry out attacks against other countries, as well as drug trade within Afghanistan.”

The declaration, which followed the BRICS summit held virtually with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi as the host, is the first statement from the group since the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan following the withdrawal of US troops on August 15.

“We condemn in the strongest terms the terrorist attacks near the Hamid Karzai Kabul International Airport that resulted in a large number of deaths and injuries,” it added.

“We emphasise the need to address the humanitarian situation [in Afghanistan] and to uphold human rights, including those of women, children and minorities,” the declaration further said.
