Batur Dostum Expresses Concerns Over Relocation of TTP to Northern Afghanistan

Batur Dostum, head of Central Council of the National Movement Party met with Feridun Sinirlioğlu, the UN Special Coordinator for Afghanistan affairs, and expressed concerns over the usurpation of Uzbek and Turkmen lands by the Taliban and relocation of Pakistani Taliban in northern Afghanistan.

During the meeting with Feridun Sinirlioğlu said, “The relocation of TTP members to northern Afghanistan” is worrying not only for the people of Afghanistan but also for the regional countries – discouraging them from engaging with the Taliban administration.

Batur Dostum is the son of Marshal Abdul Rashid Dostum who served as a parliament member in the former government. Also, Batur was a member of the Afghanistan peace negotiation team who participated in talks with the Taliban in Doha.

Referring to the shortcomings of the Taliban government and the self-centered policies of this group, Mr. Batur asked the United Nations to increase the pressure on Afghanistan’s de facto authorities, according to sources.

During the meeting, Mr. Sinirlioğlu said he is collecting and assessing reports about Afghanistan – adding he will include Batur’s complaints as well.

Nearly two months ago, the United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres appointed Feridun Sinirlioğlu of Türkiye as the Special Coordinator, Independent Assessment Mandated by Security Council Resolution 2679 (2023). 

The Secretary-General has asked Mr. Sinirlioğlu to lead the independent assessment with a view to providing recommendations for an integrated and coherent approach to address the current challenges faced by Afghanistan.
