The Islamic Emirate's spokesperson, Zabihullah Mujahid, asked that Afghanistan's seat in the organization be given to the current Afghan government on the occasion of the United Nations' International Day.
Mujahid said that not handing over this seat to the Islamic Emirate will be an affront to the people of Afghanistan.
"This organization has separate goals. And we pursue a different path, which is independence, freedom and the Islamic system. It is natural that their path is different from ours, but great injustice has been and will be done to the people of Afghanistan if the chair is not handed over to the people of Afghanistan and the government,” the spokesman noted.
Following the collapse of the previous government, and the re-establishment of the Islamic Emirate, the seat of Afghanistan's representative in the United Nations faces an unclear fate.
Meanwhile, the permanent representative of Afghanistan to the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, Nasir Ahmad Andisha, said that the role of the UN in the Afghan issue is important and fundamental.
"The UN’s role is pivotal and fundamental in the case of Afghanistan. The only important office that is currently active in Afghanistan is the UN. Although its activities are limited in providing humanitarian aid, it will play a very important role as the largest international organization,” Andisha noted.
According to some analysts, the role of the United Nations is important in solving Afghanistan's challenges.
"The UN came into existence over seventy years ago after the Second World War, the powers that are in the Security Council had won the war at that time,” said Tariq Farhadi, a political analyst.
The United Nations was formed on October 24, 1945, after 29 nations had ratified the Charter, and Afghanistan became a member of this organization in 1946.
