US Support for the Appointment of a UN Special Representative for Afghanistan

Bayan News – Matthew Miller, spokesperson for the US Department of State, states that the United States supports the adoption of a United Nations Security Council resolution regarding the appointment of a UN Special Representative for Afghanistan.

He recently added in a press briefing that the Security Council resolution expresses its support for a process that would result in Afghanistan being reintegrated into the international community by fulfilling its international commitments.

A few days ago, the United Nations Security Council adopted a draft resolution on Afghanistan with 13 votes in favor and two abstentions from China and Russia.

The resolution calls for the United Nations to appoint a special representative to determine how to engage with the Taliban.

However, this resolution faced opposition from the caretaker government in Kabul and was met with mixed reactions from political groups.

Officials from the current Kabul government have stated that there is no need for a special representative for Afghanistan in the presence of UNAMA (United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan).
