Afghanistan: Peacekeepers for Afghanistan

April 16, 2013
What could have been happening in Afghanistan since 2002:
MALI: The U.N. Security Council is considering a draft resolution to approve the creation of a 12,600-strong U.N. peacekeeping force in Mali starting July 1, which would be able to request the support of French troops if needed to combat Islamist extremist threats.
Afghans would need to push for a UN peacekeeping mission for long term stability and independence from US and other dominant powers. The Afghan government is against it as they see it as a threat to their control.  But Afghan and international civilians, civil society orgs could be pushing for it.

The humanitarian, economic, and human rights situation inside Afghanistan continues to deteriorate. Iran estimates that up to 1 million Afghans have arrived in the country since the start of 2021, although deportations have occurred on a large scale. In Pakistan, of the 250,000 new arrivals, approximately 216,000 have approached UNHCR. Conditions of refugees and other Afghans in [neighboring] countries have deteriorated, worsened by the economic situation across the region with lack of livelihoods opportunities and socio-economic perspectives.
