The Honourable Robert Rae, Ambassador and Permanent Representative-Designate of Canada to the United Nations in New York


We, the people of Afghanistan and citizens of the world, call on the United Nations and its North American Ambassadors, Her Excellency Linda Thomas Greenfield, and The Honourable Robert Rae, to find the Taliban’s actions in Afghanistan as constituting war crimes and grave breaches of the 1949 Geneva Conventions. 

More specifically, the Taliban and its powers have directly violated:

  1. The first Geneva Convention, protecting wounded and sick soldiers on land during war. The Taliban have blocked a main artery for medical treatment of wounded soldiers in the Panjshir province, preventing the vulnerable from receiving treatment. 
  2. The fourth Geneva Convention, relative to the protection of civilian persons during time of war. The Taliban have released a series of aerial bombings that wounded and killed over 1000 civilians. 
  3. Article 7 (Crimes Against Humanity), and Article 8 (War Crimes) of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court.

Such actions by the Taliban and its superior powers inflict irrevocable damage to unsuspecting civilians, to wounded soldiers, and to the environment. 


We trust you will take this to the United Nations General Assembly 76 on September 14, 2021 for imperative discussion. 


On behalf of citizens all across the world, we thank you for your cooperation in advance, and look forward to ensuring peace and safe progress for Afghans.
