United Nations (AP) — It is almost certain that the Taliban rulers in Afghanistan will not be able to speak at the UN General Assembly of world leaders this year.
The Taliban challenged the qualifications of an ambassador from the exiled government of Afghanistan and called for the country to be represented at a meeting ending on Monday.
Afghanistan will give a final speech to Parliament.
UN spokesman Stephen Dujaric said as of Friday, Afghanistan’s currently recognized UN ambassador, Gram Isakuzai, on behalf of the former government, was listed to speak.
The main reason is that the General Assembly Committee, which decides on credential issues, is not meeting and is very unlikely to meet on weekends.
The Taliban states that the United States ended the 20-year war and was released from his obligations after Isakuzai ruled the country.
