The urgent task is to resume peace, stability and order in Afghanistan, Chen told an emergency session of the Human Rights Council on Afghanistan.

"The US, the UK, Australia and other countries must be held accountable for the violation of human rights committed by their militaries in Afghanistan," the ambassador added.
