Ghani tells UN the country is dealing will multiple drivers of turmoil

Afghan President Ashraf Ghani called on the international community to help his country achieve peace as Afghanistan is facing "multiple drivers of turmoil all at once."

He said however that peace remains Afghanistanís "most urgent and important priority".

In a pre-recorded address to the UN General Assembly late Wednesday, Ghani said his country is at the center of a region both full of opportunity and afflicted by global problems.

Asia cannot integrate without Afghanistan, he said, pointing to South Asiaís need for energy and Central Asiaís abundance of resources as a clear example of the countryís relevance.

"We are right at the heart of untapped potential that could bring prosperity and peace to our region," he said, adding that to reach that potential it is imperative to clearly identify and address existing challenges.

He said the COVID‑19 pandemic had exposed the international communityís vulnerabilities, and much like the Second World War has forced all countries to take unprecedented action.

The pandemic exacerbates drivers of inequality, such as unemployment, which is upending our world, he said adding that the fourth industrial revolution, the digital age, is also challenging Afghanistan to adapt in the "ways we work and the ways we govern".

He said Afghanistan was looking at how the digital age could be used as an opportunity for the countryís "overwhelmingly young population" and ways it can be used to strengthen governance and rule of law.

Violence and warfare have also evolved, he said adding that the Afghan people are suffering at the hands of global terrorist networks. He said Afghans have experienced this evolution and suffer "in real-time and are living and dying inside the 5th wave of global terrorism."

He also stated that "global terrorist networks are closely linked with global criminal networks making warfare totally unconventional and making peace-building more of a challenge."

He said Afghanistan has taken hard decisions to start peace talks with the Taliban but is committed to the process. "This wonít be enough for sustainable peace in Afghanistan. We must get to the roots of the terrorism problem blighting our region and address it as a global phenomenon and threat that it is."

Further destabilizing the country is the issue of climate-related disasters in relation to climate change.

He said Afghans grapple with "urgent and real problems daily" and that the country needs a framework and pragmatic solutions to tackle all drivers of turmoil.

Intersecting all these destabilizing factors is an explosion of inequality, he noted.

To face all these challenges, the international community must uphold the founding principles of the United Nations, he said.

The values enshrined in human rights texts must not be seen as unachievable ideals and aspirations, rather, they must be actualized, Ghani said adding that achieving the promises of peace, dignity, justice, and freedom calls for unprecedented cooperation, frameworks that present pragmatic solutions, and a United Nations capable of fulfilling its goals.

He said Afghanistan is poised to strengthen State governance structures and create an environment conducive to growth by combating corruption. The role of the United Nations as the government proceeds with peace talks is important, he said, adding that an urgent end to violence will allow Afghanistan to progress.
