Taliban, Myanmar military junta fail UN seats
The United Nations Accreditation Committee has not approved the Taliban siege with Myanmar’s military junta within the world organization, local media reported Thursday.
The UN committee met on Wednesday and delayed the decision on who will represent the Taliban-led Afghan government and the military junta in Myanmar, Khaama Press reported today.
The two sieges have been delayed for so long, according to the Afgan news outlet.
The decision means that representatives of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan and the military junta will not be allowed to sit on the 193-member world body at this time.
It comes hours after UN candidate for the Taliban Sohail Shaheen in a series of tweets said the Afghan people have fought for their independence and have the right to have representatives at the UN. .
“To have an independent Afghanistan is the legitimate right of the Afghan people. For this they have struggled for decades. Why should they be the target of sanctions, pressure and deprived of a seat at the UN because they wanted an Afghanistan free of occupation and capable of having positive relations with any country in the world on the basis of ‘mutual interests,’ he tweeted.
Since the takeover of Afghanistan by the Taliban, the country has become an attractive destination for many terrorists. Recognizing the Taliban as a legitimate government and giving them a seat and a platform at the UN will certainly be another morale booster for terrorist organizations in Central and South Asia and the rest of the world to follow the Taliban’s path. towards power.
