UN Gaza ceasefire resolution: IEA condemns United States veto

KABUL (Ariana News): The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA) has denounced the United States for its decision on Friday to veto a resolution in the United Nations Security Council calling for a ceasefire in the Israel-Hamas war.
IEA’s foreign ministry in a statement said that the United States is using global entities to advance its own goals.
The statement said that instead of condemning and sanctioning the perpetrators of war crimes in Palestine on the occasion of the International Human Rights Day, the US imposed sanctions on more officials of the Islamic Emirate, and this shows that the US considers human rights as a political tool.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs appreciated and supported the position of the countries that demand a ceasefire and a permanent solution to the Palestinian issue, the IEA said.
“The fact that the whole humanity has been held hostage by the political goals of one actor shows the unfair nature of the existing world order, destroys the weak credibility of entities claiming human rights, and highlights the need for a just world order,” the statement said.
Washington on Friday vetoed a US Security Council demand for an immediate ceasefire. Thirteen members voted in favor of the draft resolution put forward by the United Arab Emirates, while Britain abstained.
