In response to the new UN Security Council (UNSC) resolution concerning the call for an “independent assessment to address the challenges in Afghanistan,” the Islamic Emirate spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said the current government would cooperate with it if the assessment is aimed at fostering cooperation.
Mujahid said the assessment should not be for producing propaganda against the system and based on false information.
"We hope that the assessment is for cooperation with the Afghan people and the system, not for producing propaganda against the system and based on false information,” Mujahid said.
The UN Security Council has issued a resolution based on which the challenges in Afghanistan will be assessed independently.
According to the UAE ambassador to the UN, Lana Zaki Nusseibeh, a delegation will independently assess Afghanistan's situation in terms of security, terrorism, drug production, social concerns, improving governance, and upholding the rule of law based on this resolution.
“Afghanistan has been on an extremely alarming trajectory since August 2021. So, our hope is that the assessments will offer credible suggestions as to various relevant international regional actress can coalesce around the shared vision for the country and how we can advance that vision in the Security Council,” Nusseibeh said.
The UN Secretary-General is asked in the resolution put out by Japan and the United Arab Emirates, to conduct an independent assessment that provides recommendations for an integrated and coherent approach to the Afghan situation among different actors in the international community.
“If the international community adopts a committed approach toward Afghanistan, I can say that we will witness a new chapter in the approach of the international community toward Afghanistan,” said university lecturer Sayed Jawad Sajadi.
“The assessment of the UN will show that unfortunately in Afghanistan, girls do not have access to education and women's work is restricted, poverty has increased and people are thinking about emigration. All of this should be corrected,” said Tariq Farhadi, a political analyst.
On Thursday, the UN Security Council unanimously adopted two resolutions concerning the situation in Afghanistan. The first resolution was the renewal of the mandate of the UN Assistance Mission to Afghanistan (UNAMA) and the second resolution requests that the Secretary-General conduct an independent assessment that provides recommendations for an integrated and coherent approach among different actors in the international community in order to address the current challenges facing Afghanistan.
