The letter also noted that former president Mohammed Ashraf Ghani has been “ousted and [countries across the world] no longer recognize him as president,” according to the spokesman’s statement.
UN watchers had anticipated potential conflict this year over at least two seats in the General Assembly Hall — those of Myanmar and Afghanistan, where new regimes have recently surged to power but diplomats representing the previous governments still hold UN accreditation.
Since the Taliban took control of Afghanistan, Isaczai has continued to advocate for his country, meeting with foreign envoys and even calling on the UN Security Council to pressure the Taliban into forming a more democratic government.
上个星期, he sent his own letter to the UN Secretary General with a list of delegates for this week’s General Assembly and named himself as the head of the delegation.
Both letters have now been sent on to the UN’s Credentials Committee, Dujarric said.
The future of democracy under the Taliban — and particularly the rights of women and girls — is a hot topic during this high-level week at the UN, which has seen over a hundred national leaders convene in New York.
The UN Security Council on Friday voted unanimously to extend its UN Assistance Mission in the country for six months.
