The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) had lifted the travel ban imposed on him just two days ago. After the return of the Taliban to power in August 2021, many countries including the UNSC had imposed a travel ban on it.

In fact, in the 2010s, the Haqqani network carried out several suicide attacks on American soldiers in Afghanistan. In 2012, the US declared the Haqqani network a terrorist organization. Along with Haqqani, intelligence chief Mullah Abdul Haq Wasiq and Maulvi Anas Haqqani also reached UAE.

How are the relations between Saudi Arabia, UAE and Taliban?

Despite the US ban, UAE and Saudi did not spoil their relations with the Taliban. Apart from this, Saudi Arabia resumed its consular service in Afghanistan from February 2023.

This is the first time Sirajuddin Haqqani has visited a foreign country since the occupation of Afghanistan in 2021. The UAE President met Haqqani at Qasr Al-Shati Palace in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday (June 6).

Haqqani had carried out terrorist attacks in Afghanistan before the Taliban took over
Before the Taliban took over Afghanistan in 2021, the Haqqani network carried out many dangerous attacks in Afghanistan. The United Nations has also banned this organization. The Haqqani network is known for using suicide bombers in terrorist attacks.

In 2013, the Afghan army seized a truck belonging to the Haqqani network. This truck was loaded with about 28 tonnes of explosives. The Haqqani network was also accused of the suicide attack on the then Afghan President Hamid Karzai in 2008. The Haqqani network is also accused of starting suicide attacks in Afghanistan.

The Haqqani network has the most influence in eastern Afghanistan. The base of this organization, which is influential in Afghanistan, is in the north-western border of Pakistan. The presence of the Haqqani network has also increased in the Taliban leadership. In 2015, the current head of the network, Sirajuddin Haqqani, was made the deputy leader of the Taliban.

‘India helped our enemies, but we are ready to forget it’
In 2021, Anas Haqqani, brother of Haqqani network chief Sirajuddin Haqqani, said in an interview to CNN that we want good relations with India. India has helped our enemies a lot in the last twenty years, but we want to forget everything and move the relationship forward. On the Kashmir issue, Anas said that any kind of interference in Kashmir is against our policy. We will not interfere on this issue.

What is the relationship between the Haqqani network and the Taliban?
The Haqqani network was formed by former Mujahideen commander Jalaluddin Haqqani. Jalaluddin started it in the 1980s with training and funding from the US intelligence agency CIA. The CIA helped many fighters in this way to fight against the Soviet Union, which occupied Afghanistan at that time.

Jalaluddin was one of the heroes of the anti-Soviet jihad at that time. By the time the Soviet government in Afghanistan collapsed, Jalaluddin had developed good relations with many foreign jihadists, including Osama bin Laden. When the Taliban came to power in Afghanistan in the 1990s, Jalaluddin joined hands with them.

In the early 2000s, Haqqani’s influence in the Taliban grew and he was made a military commander. After the 9/11 World Trade Center attack, when America’s interference in Afghanistan increased, Haqqani fought in the war against NATO forces. It is said that at that time, Haqqani also had a hand in driving Osama bin Laden out of Afghanistan.

In the early 2010s, the Haqqani network carried out a series of suicide attacks on US troops in Afghanistan. Jalaluddin Haqqani died in 2018 after a long illness. After this, Jalaluddin’s son Sirajuddin Haqqani became the new head of the network.
