“The new Afghan government, as a responsible body with the right to sovereignty over all of Afghanistan, and which also provided security for all Afghans, has the legal right to represent the Afghan people at the UN,” Afghan Foreign Ministry spokesman Abdul Kahar Balkhi said on Twitter .
The Foreign Ministry spokesman in the interim government of Afghanistan also called the UN decision to postpone the verdict on the country’s representation as a violation of the rights of the Afghan people, which can be used as an instrument of pressure. He condemned the possibility of representing the country in an international organization by a member of the former government.
“This place (the UN) is the right of the Afghan government and people, and the law must be respected UN should work on rationality and again deeply consider this issue.” – he wrote in Twitter another Taliban spokesman Inammula Samangan.
