Kabul (IP) – An expert on legal issues and a university professor in Kabul said that the September 11, 2001 incident had devastating consequences for the world, including the US military presence in Afghanistan.

Iran PressAsia: The September 11 attacks were a series of terrorist attacks by al-Qaeda against the US on September 11, 2001, resulting in 2,977 fatalities, over 25,000 injuries, and substantial long-term health consequences, in addition to at least $10 billion in infrastructure and property damage, but the attacks indicate a pretext for US imperialism.

In an interview with Iran Press' reporter in Kabul about the consequences of September 11 after 20 years, Es'haq Nabizadeh stated that with the US attack on Afghanistan, the concepts of international security and human rights changed.

He noted that what September 11 brought to Afghanistan was the development of the war, insecurity, the intensification of mistrust, the increase in poverty, the destruction of vital infrastructure, especially the economy, and the destruction of nation-building components in Afghanistan.

He pointed out that 20 years have passed since September 11, and even with the US withdrawal from Afghanistan, the White House is following the same policy of the past in the fight against terrorism, and today terrorism has acquired complex layers.

Nabizadeh said that the continuation of US drone attacks in Kabul and other areas of Afghanistan after leaving the country and 20 years of occupation show that Afghanistan can still be used as a base for the US.

Twenty years after September 11, the United States left Afghanistan overnight without any achievements. Destruction and spreading poverty in Afghanistan result from 20 years of US occupation.

On August 15, 2021, the Taliban came into power by entering Kabul and the presidential palace.
