Afghanistan banned from representation in the United Nations

The United Nations has prohibited Afghanistan’s representation in the organisation, stating that no one would be allowed to represent Afghanistan in the world body.

According to private television station 92 News, a UN committee has decided that the Taliban cannot represent Afghanistan at the UN. The committee also flatly refused to let Myanmar’s military leadership speak on their behalf.

The World Bank, on the other hand, has cleared the transfer of frozen Afghan funds to two humanitarian organisations. The World Food Program and the World Food Program will get a total of 28 280 million dollars.

The UN General Assembly’s nine-member credentialing committee, which includes the US, Russia, and China, is now debating who speaks for Afghanistan.

The Taliban has attempted to create a reformed image since capturing control of Afghanistan before 2 months by vowing to protect human rights, particularly the rights of women and girls.

However, human rights organisations claim that the Taliban has not modified its practises. Amnesty International, the International Federation for Human Rights, and the World Organisation Against Torture accused the group on Tuesday of “steadily destroying” 20-year-old human rights advances.

“The Taliban have clearly proved that they are not serious about defending or respecting human rights in just over 2 months since gaining control of Afghanistan,” Dinushika Dissanayake, Amnesty International’s deputy director for South Asia, said in a statement. “A tsunami of violations has already occurred, ranging from retaliatory attacks and limitations on women to crackdowns on protests, the media, and civil society.”
