Afghanistan’s Foreign Minister: No Need for UN Special Representative for Afghanistan

Bayan News – Amir Khan Muttaqi, the acting Foreign Minister of Afghanistan, stated during a meeting with Jaw Sheng, the Chinese Ambassador to Kabul, that the world should not view Afghanistan as a country at war, and therefore, there is no need to appoint a special representative for the country.

Abdul Qahar Balkhi, the spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, wrote on the X platform on Friday night (January 11) that the meeting discussed bilateral relations between Afghanistan and China, as well as regional issues.

Muttaqi added during the meeting that Afghanistan should not be seen as a country at war, and therefore, there is no need for an additional special representative.

These statements come at a time when the United Nations Security Council recently adopted a resolution that calls for the appointment of a special representative to enhance interaction with Afghanistan.

The adoption of this resolution has faced opposition from the Taliban and the agreement of its opponents.

Meanwhile, the Chinese Ambassador to Kabul stated that it is important for the common future of the world to establish a multipolar system in which both small and large countries can equally safeguard their interests.

Mr. Sheng, during this meeting, also pledged a 100 million Chinese yuan assistance from his country to Afghan returnees, which will be utilized for the needs of the returnees.
