Taliban Asks To Speak At UN General Assembly Instead Of Former Government's Ambassador

The Taliban is challenging the credentials of their country’s former U.N. ambassador and want to speak at the General Assembly’s high-level meeting of world leaders.

The question now facing U.N. officials comes just over a month after the Taliban, ejected from Afghanistan by the United States and its allies after 9/11 came back into power as U.S. forces prepared to withdraw from the country at the end of August.

U.N. spokesman Stephane Dujarric said Secretary General Antonio Guterres received a communication on September 15th from the currently accredited Afghan Ambassador, Ghulam Isaczai, with the list of Afghanistan’s delegation for the assembly’s 76th annual session.

On September 20th, the UN Secretary General received another communication titled “Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, Ministry of Foreign Affairs,” signed by “Ameer Khan Muttaqi” as “Minister of Foreign Affairs,” requesting to participate in the U.N. gathering of world leaders.

Muttaqi said in the letter that former Afghan president Ashraf Ghani was “ousted” as of August 15th and that countries across the world “no longer recognize him as president,” and therefore Isaczai no longer represents Afghanistan, Dujarric said.

The Taliban said it was nominating a new U.N. permanent representative, Mohammad Suhail Shaheen, the U.N. spokesman said.

He has been a spokesman for the Taliban during peace negotiations in Qatar.

Whether the Taliban are allowed to attend the UNGA depends on the decision of the U.N. credentials committee.

Associated Press cited an unnamed official who said the committee “would take some time to deliberate,” suggesting the Taliban’s envoy would not be able to speak at the General Assembly at this session. Afghanistan is scheduled to give the last speech on the final day of the high-level meeting on September 27th. It wasn’t clear who would speak if the committee met and the Taliban were given Afghanistan’s seat.

The Taliban have said they want international recognition and financial help to rebuild the war-battered country.

But the makeup of the new Taliban government poses a dilemma for the United Nations. Several of the interim ministers are on the U.N.’s so-called blacklist of international terrorists and funders of terrorism.

No government has yet recognized the Taliban government, first demanding that it meet commitments on human rights, but the ruling emir of Qatar, whose nation has played a pivotal role in Afghanistan, urged world leaders against turning their backs on the Taliban.

Speaking at the UNGA on September 21st, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani stressed “the necessity of continuing dialogue with Taliban because boycott only leads to polarization and reactions, whereas dialogue could bring in positive results.”

An interesting dilemma for the UN, an organisation controlled by the psychopathic US and an unelected deep state actor Guterres. Does it appear to represent the world’s nations or will it take its orders from the roundly defeated and ignominous, US, which will be widely viewed as sour grapes and a last attempt at salvaging a long gone respect.

Chess Master

If controlled by psychopatic US why is Russia part of it?


Russia has to be on the SC for the conceit of the UN to work, but as an institution, it falls perfectly in step with the neoliberal globalist agenda. Its raison d’etre is to undermine the independence and sovereignty of nations and establish global government.

deobandi arent wahabi they are also retarded yes but they are incapable more than anything and much less funded so they arent a real threat their delusions are contained by their pashtun backwards identity just wait and watch how they will humiliate themselves over and over again and in fact they will only have success when they listen to what iran is telling them to do and certainly if they continue pashtun supremacy ideology and idiotic idea that these miserables are amir ul momenin disrespecting our leader in the process they will follow soon after kabul government and become another failure meanwhile iran has a competent loyal population of 100s of thousands of people from afghanistan so iran has more than enough educated and capable people to replace incompetent taliban rule if they fail

“pashtun backward identity” – Your Persian Chauvanism is retarded racist bullsh1t. Taliban should “listen” to Iran” – 20 years ago, the US occupation was assisted by the moronic Qom arsefuckers. Today, after the Taliban soundly defeated the US Occupation without Iranian help, Iran wants to dictate – Go fuck your shia arse bitch. Qom wants to “replace” failed Taliban – why didnt Qom invade? Perhaps they are slightly cleverer than you Mr Armchair General. Do you think the Talibs cannot do to you what they did to a superpower and 28 additional nations?

You are a minority fireworshipping cult of Ali and Hussein who sell your sisters into Muta’ prostitution using your pimp Mullahs and you hypocritically rail against taliban treatment of women. Yours isnt the real deal. But do what you need to do. The Real islam will ultimately prevail. You are just pawns in the big game. The deathblow to empires is always signalled by their defeat in Afghanistan. Perhaps “superpower” Iran should take heed of the lessons of history and not look in the mirror and feel superior to the Pashtun or other nations.

you STFU. We’ll genocide you bastards like we’ve done to the others in the SyRaq. You motherfuckers are at our mercy. We will act if we see the slightest meandering from the line. Dalit hendu-pak wahabbi like you we dispose off by the million, if necessary. Both Russia and China hate you cunts like the plague. Don’t mistake compassion for complacency. You dalit and the guppu ass moghal turks are both trouble makers.

I come from a place where we put Shiite Rafidah pimps like you down so badly, they dont look in our faces when they pass us by on the street. I’m happy to oblige you too son of a prostitute. You and Hindoos have much in common – they are the world’s biggest brothel and Iran is the 2nd biggest. Once again – You are a backward, inbred son of a prostiitute thats why you confuse dalit with Wahhabi and deobandi. Hows that Nuke coming along piglet? the backward pakis have Nukes 4 decades now and your pimps in Qom are still catching up.

Saddam wiped you out like pigs to slaughter until you sucked Yankee cock and got to control Iraq. Since your nation are the sons of Jew Ibn Sabah, We are letting you do the main job of letting you take care of your brothers in Tel Aviv. Ever wonder why the Dajjal’s army is composed of jews from isfahan? -‘cos you cocksuckers are all crypto jews pretending to be Muslim. Come to the light Rafidah pig and leave your religion of Fireworshipping and Hussein worship.
