The Taliban appointed new ambassador of Afghanistan to the UN

The Taliban appointed new ambassador of Afghanistan to the UN

The “Taliban” movement has appointed Muhammad Suhail Shaheen as a new ambassador of Afghanistan to the UN.

As iDemocracy informs, referring to Reuters, the Taliban has also expressed the willingness to speak at the General Assembly session.

Let us note that Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Taliban Amir Khan Motaqi informed about the new appointment in a letter to the UN Secretary-General Antonio Gutteres.

The Taliban’s statement also indicates that permanent representative of Afghanistan to the UN Ghulam Isaczai, who has been appointed by the previous government, does not represent the country any longer.

According to the spokesperson for the UN Secretary-General, the letter has been already delivered to the Credentials Committee. However it is unlikely that there will be time to collect it until the 27th September by the end of the General Assembly session. So, a speech by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the “Taliban” at the world organization may not take place.

Director of iDemocracy for Human Rights Mykola Kuleba has noted earlier that the Presidential Office and the government of Presidential Office and government of Ukraine should strengthen social guarantees and create adequate facilities for refugees.
