The Security Council is monitoring how negotiations in Afghanistan progress and hopes the negotiations and peace talks will yield results, said ambassador Tirumurti, adding that the UNSC hopes a military solution can be avoided.
The United Nations has no peacekeepers in Afghanistan. The UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan is a political mission. But violence there is increasing. Recently there was an attack on the UN compound in Herat.
