U.S. Cannot Evade Its Responsibility for Worst Afghan Crisis

Afghanistan has a large volume of underground resources worth trillions of US$, including iron, copper, lithium and rare-earth minerals. Yet, it has been degenerated into the poorest country owing to the worst humanitarian crisis caused by starvation, poverty and economic stagnation.

In an assessment report on Afghanistan in September this year, Director of the UNDP Regional Bureau for Asia and the Pacific indicated that the poverty rate of the country has reached 72% and predicted that the rate would increase to 97-98% by next year. And UNICEF announced that more than half of Afghan children aged under 5 are suffering from severe malnutrition because of food shortage.

G20 Meeting of Foreign Ministers on Afghanistan Issue, G20 Special Summit on Afghanistan, Moscow Meeting on Coordination of Afghanistan and Meeting of Foreign Ministers of Afghanistan's Neighboring Countries + Russia were successively held in September and October, all having been devoted to easing the serious humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan and ensuring prompt delivery of humanitarian aid to the country.

On the other hand, United Nations decided to provide an emergency aid of US$ 45.99 million to prevent a likely collapse of health system in Afghanistan, and International Committee of Red Cross and International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies mounted fund-raising campaigns for Afghanistan. And China, Pakistan, Iran, Kazakhstan and other countries took urgent steps to provide air transport of aid goods such as food and medicines to Afghanistan.

Most of these countries have accepted and taken care of millions of Afghan refugees over the last 20 years, bearing huge human and financial costs.

However, the United States, main culprit of current Afghan crisis, did not participate in the Moscow Meeting on Coordination of Afghanistan, but instead froze the capital of US$ 9.4 billion in the Central Bank of Afghanistan to use it as a card of pressure for pursuing its selfish political purpose.

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi, in his video statement delivered at the G20 Meeting of Foreign Ministers on Afghanistan Issue, called on those countries responsible for having caused the current situation in Afghanistan to look back in sincerity upon their past deeds and immediately start practical work to remove the current difficulties faced by the Afghan people.

At a recent press conference, a spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russian Federation also called on the U.S. and the Western countries - that had established their own order in Afghanistan - to face up to all their responsibilities for the acts committed in Afghanistan during 20 years of their occupation and not shift the current difficult problems to the Afghan people and other countries in the region.

The United States is the main culprit who brutally devastated Afghanistan and caused the worst humanitarian crisis for 20 years since its occupation of the country under the signboard of a war against terror.

The U.S., though loudly voicing humanitarianism and human rights on every possible occasion, can never evade its responsibility for having committed the unprecedented inhumane crimes in Afghanistan.
