The UN Security Council is set to hold a closed-door meeting on Afghanistan on Friday.
The Chargé d'Affaires of the Afghanistan Permanent Mission to the UN, Naseer Ahmad Faiq, said that deputy of the UN Secretary-General Amina Mohammed will talk about her recent visit to Afghanistan at this meeting.
“This meeting will only be held with the participation of the deputy head of the (UN) Secretary General and UNSC members, and the non-UNSC members will not participate in it. The agenda of the meeting will be the visit of the deputy head of the (UN) Secretary General to Afghanistan,” he said.
The Islamic Emirate meanwhile suggested that the issues being discussed about Afghanistan in this meeting should be based on realities.
“We call on the UNSC to consider the developments and realities in the society in Afghanistan. They should focus on the continuation of contact with Afghanistan and the government of Afghanistan, which is effective. If the UN and UNSC have any concern or wishes they can mention them through diplomatic means, which are negotiable,” said Islamic Emirate’s spokesman, Zabiullah Mujahid.
The meeting of the UNSC will be conducted by the UAE, Japan and China.
The political analysts called the holding of such a meeting effective for Afghanistan.
“The meetings without the use of effective instruments cannot find a solution,” said Naseer Ahmad Tarakai, a political analyst.
“Afghanistan is getting closer to the theoretical area of politics. In fact, political engagement regarding Afghanistan is seriously being considered this time. But we will see what are the message and outcomes of these meetings,” said Rahmatullah Bizhanpor, a university instructor.
This comes as more than 10 regional and international conferences have been held on Afghanistan.
Experts say that due to the lack of an ambassador from Afghanistan, and a lack of flexibility of the Islamic Emirate, the meetings have not been as effective as they should be.
