West News Wire: The UN General Assembly just received a resolution for the first time since the Taliban seized power in Afghanistan.
The Assembly made a great effort to avoid endorsing the Taliban as a legitimate administration while discussing topics like security, terrorism, and the social and economic crisis. Experts think that this may have national implications.
Sohail Shaheen, the head of the Islamic Emirate’s political office in Qatar, responded to this resolution by stating that the Taliban are dedicated to granting all of the justifiable rights and demands of the people, and that they are working to create the conditions and resources necessary to accomplish this. According to experts, the Taliban’s acceptance might result in good things.
Since the Taliban took control 15 months ago, their non-recognition, along with the sanctions imposed on the central bank and the freezing of Afghan assets, has driven the economy of the country to the brink of collapse.
It’s believed the recognition of Taliban may be a way to improve the situation in the country, but on the other hand, releasing assets and removing sanctions could also be effective.
