Taliban’s Deputy PM Calls Exclusion Of Group's Demands At Doha Meet “Unfair”

Friday, 02/23/2024

Mawlawi Abdul Kabir, the Deputy Prime Minister of the Taliban, has expressed dissatisfaction with the United Nations for overlooking the Taliban's requests at the Doha meeting, calling the decision as “unfair”.

He contended that the Taliban's propositions, which he described as aligned with "national interests," were unjustly disregarded by the United Nations.

The office of the Taliban's Prime Minister announced that Mawlawi Abdul Kabir shared these concerns during discussions with members of the Youth Council from 22 districts of Kabul.

The second Doha meeting, aimed at addressing Afghanistan's situation and hosted by the UN Secretary-General, drew representatives from more than 25 countries.

Amir Khan Muttaqi, the Foreign Minister of the Taliban, was initially slated to attend the meeting. However, his participation was ultimately revoked following UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres' refusal to meet with him, thus barring the Taliban's senior diplomat from the event.

Despite the Taliban's insistence that no individual or group represent Afghanistan at this assembly, the United Nations did not accommodate this request. Instead, the UN invited a delegation comprising three women and two men from the Afghan civil society to partake in the discussions in Doha.
