WASHINGTON The United States doesnt support a blanket removal of Taliban figures from the UN blacklist as part of an Afghan reconciliation plan, the US Special Envoy to the region said. The Afghan government has tried to have the United Nations remove former Taliban figures from the so-called 1,267 list that imposes a travel ban and other restrictions on 137 individuals tied to the Taliban. The UN Security Council passed Resolution 1,267 in 1999 in an effort to persuade the Taliban to hand over al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden and discourage the group from allowing Afghan territory to be used for terrorist activity. Afghan President Hamid Karzai announced this week that he planned to ask the United Nations to remove up to 50 former Taliban officers from a terrorism blacklist represented by Resolution 1,267. Richard Holbrooke, Washingtons Special Envoy to Afghanistan and Pakistan, said the delisting procedure required lengthy procedures at the United Nations, adding Washington agreed to Karzais proposals on a case-by-case basis. We will not support a blanket ending of this list, he added. There are people on it who are dangerous threats to the United States and our allies and there are people on it who are active in movements which threaten to kill members of the coalition. Karzais proposal is part of a reconciliation and reintegration effort unveiled during a May visit to Washington.
