The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) stated that it will convene to discuss the situation in Afghanistan.
The UNSC session on Afghanistan is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, September 27, according to an announcement from the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA).
The meeting will be briefed by Markus Potzel, the acting head of UNAMA and the Deputy Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General.
Naseer Ahmad Faiq, the Afghanistan Permanent Mission’s Chargé d’Affaires, previously announced that he will not be speaking at the 77th meeting of the UN General Assembly (UNGA 77).
The Afghan representative at the UN did, however, confirm that he is scheduled to participate and make a statement regarding the situation in Afghanistan at the UN Security Council meeting on September 27.
Representative Faiq also wrote on his Twitter handle that the UNSC’s session on Tuesday, 27th of September will be focused on the situation in Afghanistan, where he will be voicing the people’s concerns and demands.
The UNSC meeting on the situation of Afghanistan convenes at a time when the UNSC was previously deadlocked over whether to extend the Taliban senior officials’ travel ban exemptions.
