Islamic Emirate Calls UN Chief's Report 'Optimistic'

The Islamic Emirate’s spokesman, Zabiullah Mujahid, called the quarterly report of the UN Secretary-General regarding Afghanistan “optimistic."

UN’s Chief Antonio Guterres in his report to the United Nations Security Council highlighted the security, political, economic and social developments in Afghanistan.

However, Mujahid told TOLOnews that Guterres has no precise definition about the formation of an inclusive government in Afghanistan.

“The government is inclusive. We have shared it with the UN. Any definition that they have for an inclusive government, we can share with them now that our government is inclusive… but unfortunately they do not have yet any general definition,” Mujahid said.

According to Guterres’s report, “security incidents linked to the armed opposition and attacks by the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant-Khorasan (ISIL-K) continued.”

However, he said that the country continues to face unprecedented levels of humanitarian need with over two-thirds of its population requiring assistance amid significant shortfalls of funding.

It stated in the report that available data indicates that “armed clashes decreased by 41 percent, from 104 to 61 incidents” in 2023, the report said, adding, “the armed opposition posed no challenge to the Taliban for territorial control during the reporting period.”

Mujahid meanwhile stressed that the activities of the Islamic Emirate’s opposition are not a challenge for them.

The political analysts gave various opinions regarding the report.

“We call on the government to respect the wishes of the people. Every Afghan should see themselves, and the universities should be reopened for our sisters, and our sisters should be appointed in the posts where they are needed,” said Hasham Alokozai, a political analyst.

“These reports are in the interest of the people of Afghanistan… and for the presence of the international community, as well as the contribution of the international community to find a solution for Afghanistan,” said Wais Naseri, political analyst.

It was mentioned in the report that “actual attacks on the de facto authorities were fewer in number, despite an increase in the number of claimed attacks by groups on social media.”
