UNITED NATIONS: The dispute between Afghanistan’s new Taliban rulers and its former government over who should speak at the United Nations’ annual meeting of world leaders finally has an answer: no one.
The Taliban had challenged the credentials of the ambassador from Afghanistan’s former government, and asked to represent the country at this year’s General Assembly summit, which began September 21 and ends Monday.
But all challenges to credentials must be heard by the assembly’s credentials committee, which generally meets in November and did not convene earlier to hear the challenge.
UN spokesperson Stephane Dujarric said that as of Friday, Afghanistan’s currently recognised UN ambassador, Ghulam Isaczai, was listed as speaking for the country. But, Dujarric said on Monday: “We were notified Saturday by the Afghan mission that they would no longer be speaking.” In a letter to UN secretary-general Antonio Guterres, the Taliban’s foreign minister, Ameer Khan Muttaqi, said Ghani was “ousted” as of August15 and that countries across the world “no longer recognise him as president.” Therefore, Muttaqi said, Isaczai no longer represents Afghanistan and the Taliban was nominating a new UN permanent representative, Mohammad Suhail Shaheen.
When the Taliban last ruled from1996 to 2001, the UN refused to recognise their government.
