The UN Security Council said in a statement that it will convene for its quarterly open briefing on Afghanistan in December.
According to the statement, the special representative of the UN Secretary-General and head of the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) Roza Otunbayeva; Ambassador José de la Gasca (Ecuador), the Chair of the 1988 Afghanistan Sanctions Committee; and a representative of civil society are expected to brief.
Sayed Ishaq Gailani, head of the National Solidarity Movement of Afghanistan said: “They should take fundamental action to benefit Afghanistan in the future, not to addict them [Islamic Emirate] with food assistance.”
“The meeting could be beneficial in case it brings a mechanism for stability in Afghanistan and recognition of
Afghanistan and specifying the status of Afghanistan,” said Sayed Muqdam Amin, a political analyst.
This comes as the Islamic Emirate said that the meetings without the presence of its envoys will be meaningless.
Islamic Emirate’s spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid said that the international community is trying to put political pressure on the Islamic Emirate.
“Unfortunately, the world has politicized all humanitarian, climate change and economic issues and they want to use all of the issues as a political tool, which is not right,” he said.
In an earlier document accessed by TOLOnews, the UN Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres recommended a roadmap for reintegration of Afghanistan into the international community.
