In response to the United Nations Security Council meeting on Wednesday, the Taliban Ministry of Foreign Affairs has advised UN members not to interfere in Afghanistan’s internal affairs.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in an announcement on Thursday, June 22, that this group is committed to all of its commitments based on “Islamic Sharia.”
In this newsletter, the Taliban criticised the words of the countries’ representatives at the Security Council meeting as intervention in Afghanistan affairs and demanded they quit intervening in internal issues, especially the governance process.
According to the newsletter, the Taliban has pledged to implement justice, provide security, prevent the rise of terrorism, and combat drug trafficking.
Meanwhile, at a meeting of the United Nations Security Council on Wednesday, Roza Otunbayeva, the head of UNAMA, stated that the Taliban government remained politically “isolated and autocratic” and that the Taliban government’s “composition is completely male” and violates women’s rights.
At the same time, during the meeting, Barbara Woodward, the British ambassador to the United Nations, stated that the Taliban will not be recognised by the international community if they continue on their current course; sanctions against this group will remain in place; and development aid will be halted.
