Former US National Security Advisor (NSA) John Bolton has targeted the Taliban, who are in power in Afghanistan. Bolton said in an interview that the Taliban are still a terrorist group, even though they were successful in overthrowing the government in Afghanistan.
Bolton said China and Russia are acting as surrogates for the Taliban. Whereas recognizing the Taliban government would be a big mistake of America. On the threat of ISIS-K, Bolton said that they are harsher than the Taliban. At present, both may be opposites, but in the coming time, changes in their relationship are possible.
Terrorists planning to attack America and its allies
Bolton said that ISIS-K, al-Qaeda and other groups are planning attacks on America and its allies, which is very real. He said that the US is unaware of which group has got shelter in Afghanistan. Bolton said the risk of another 9/11 attack on America is very real. There have already been reports of thousands of foreign fighters coming back to Afghanistan.
There should be a change in India’s weapon strategy
Bolton insisted that there should be a change in India’s weapons strategy. There is absolutely no need for America for this. France, Britain and other countries can also play their role in this. He said trade is always a contentious issue. These issues are also standing with Japan and the European Union, which need to be discussed.
Britain’s intelligence agency warned about the attack
Ken McCallum, the head of Britain’s intelligence agency MI-5, said a few days ago that the Taliban’s occupation of Afghanistan will boost the morale of terrorists. He said that this means that the fear of terrorist attacks like 9/11 remains. Hence there is a need to be more cautious. McCallum said that we can face terrorist reorganization and well planned and high level conspiracies, as we saw after 9/11 or so.
The editor of Chinese state media also warned
Hu Jijin, editor of Chinese state media Global Times, issued a similar warning on the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks. He said that America is making a huge mistake by considering China as its enemy. If America does not change its attitude, then terrorists can take advantage of it. Another terrorist attack like 9/11 may happen again in future.
9/11 attacks killed 2 thousand 977 people from 93 countries
It has been 20 years since the attack on America’s World Trade Center. On September 11, 2001, 19 terrorists hijacked four commercial planes. Two of these planes collided with the North and South Towers of the World Trade Center. At the same time, the third plane crashed on the Pentagon. In this attack, 2 thousand 977 people from 93 countries were killed. The attack was carried out by a terrorist organization named Al-Qaeda.
