The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan in a letter to the United Nations said that the spokesperson of their political office in Doha, Sohail Shaheen to be accepted as the new permanent representative of Afghanistan to the UN.
The letter has reasoned that the tenure of Ghulam Muhammad Ishaqzai-current and former Afghan government’s permanent representative to UN- has ended.
Ghulam Muhammad Ishaqzai is still the PR of Afghanistan in the UN and was given time to deliver a speech on Monday, at the annual assembly of the UN.
The letter by the Taliban is received by the UN but for the time being, Sohail Shaheen has not been agreed to be Afghanistan’s PR.
In the meantime, the Taliban has asked for the participation of the country’s acting foreign minister Amir Khan Motaqi in UN assembly this week but the plea is not given a green signal yet.
Political analysts argue that the UN will not accept any of those suggestions until and unless the Taliban are not recognized.
It has been more than one month since the full takeover of Afghanistan by the Taliban but no state has recognized them yet.
