New York: UN general debate ends with no contribution from Afghanistan – politics

After taking power in Afghanistan, the militant Islamist Taliban applied to the UN to officially represent the country on the UN stage – both with a speech at the general debate and with the nomination of a dedicated ambassador to replace Isaczai. The decision on this now lies with the responsible UN Accreditation Committee. So far, however, there has been no scheduled meeting of the body, which is why the previous ambassador of Afghanistan has at least temporarily retained his office.

The Taliban took power in Afghanistan in mid-August. The previous President Ashraf Ghani had previously fled the country. Germany, the USA and other Western countries are holding talks with the Taliban, but they do not recognize them as a legitimate government.
