Afghanistan ambassador to the UN Ghulam Isaczai
Taliban UNGA Meeting News: Despite winning power in Afghanistan, it is becoming increasingly difficult for the Taliban to gain global recognition. This organization, which forms the government of terrorists, will not get any place in the meeting of the United Nations General Assembly on Saturday. The global agency said that the name of Afghanistan’s current recognized ambassador to the United Nations, Ghulam Isaczai, is included in the speaker’s list. UN spokeswoman Stephanie Dujarric said Isakzai, who represented the (deposed) government of former President Ashraf Ghani, would speak on behalf of Afghanistan.
Earlier in the week, it was reported that the Taliban have expressed their willingness to address the UNGA meeting in New York and have named Doha-based spokesman Suhail Shaheen as Afghanistan’s ambassador to the UN. At the same time, Amir Khan Muttaki, Foreign Minister of the Taliban government, also wrote a letter to UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres on Monday. In which Guterres was expressed his desire to speak during the annual high-level meeting of the UNGA. The Taliban challenged Isakzai’s credentials, saying that he (the Taliban) is now in charge and has the right to appoint an ambassador.
wrote a letter to the UN Secretary General
Muttaki, in his letter to Guterres, said that Ghani was “deposed” on August 15 and that countries around the world “no longer recognize him (Ashraf Ghani) as president.” Muttaki said that is why Isakzai could no longer represent Afghanistan (Taliban Letter to UN). Let us tell you that the UNGA committee meets to take decisions related to such matters. Agency spokeswoman Monica Greeley said this time the meeting would be held in November. So only then will a solution be found on this issue. Until the committee makes a decision, Isakzai will remain the ambassador for Afghanistan. He will deliver the address on the last day of the meeting i.e. September 27.
was not recognized before
Taliban spokesman Suhail Shaheen said on Wednesday, ‘We have all the necessary things to get the government recognized. Therefore we hope that the United Nations will recognize the current government of Afghanistan as a neutral world body. The Taliban government has said that it wants to be recognized internationally and also wants financial help for the reconstruction of the war-torn country. Earlier in the previous regime of Taliban, in 1996-2001 also, the UN had refused to recognize the Taliban. Also, the seat of Afghanistan was given to the previous government of the then President Burhanuddin Rabbani.
