“In December [19] 2000, UN Resolution 1333 imposed a complete arms ban on the Taliban and closing of training camps, as well as a seizure of Taliban assets outside Afghanistan. The resolution was aimed at stopping Pakistan’s arms support to the Taliban. The Taliban reacted angrily, while Pakistan’s ISI [Inter-Services Intelligence] put together the ‘Afghan Defense Council,’ made up of forty Pakistani Islamic political parties, designed to resist UN pressure and register support for the Taliban.”
