Afghan envoy Ghulam Isaczai defies Taliban government, denounces it

United Nations: Afghanistan’s Permanent Representative Ghulam Isaczai has defied the Taliban government and denounced its overthrow of the elected government and use of violence to reinstall the “so-called Islamic Emirate.”

Speaking at the General Assembly on Tuesday as the Taliban-controlled government was trying to settle in, Isaczai said asked the international community to reject the Taliban as the rulers of Afghanistan.

“They continue to choose war over peace as a way of resolving their differences with those who oppose them as we are witnessing their brutal offensive against the people of Panjshir and suppression of women peacefully demonstrating across cities in Afghanistan,” he said.

“The Taliban unseated the elected Government of Afghanistan and gained power through violence and are seeking to reinstate their so-called Islamic Emirate, in violation of the resolution passed by this Assembly less than nine months ago,” he said.

Isaczai, who was appointed as the country’s representative at the UN by ousted President Ashraf Ghani and presented his credentials in July, continues to represent the country under UN rules.

The Taliban, which overran Afghanistan and took control of Kabul on August 15, announced on Monday a hardline government with Mohammad Hassan Akhund as Prime Minister and excluding women.

Secretary-General Antonio Guterres’s Deputy Spokesperson Farzan Haq said that member countries recognise governments and not the UN.

The General Assembly’s credentials committee, which determines who represents a country, can take up Afghanistan’s representations when it meets next week. Isaczai said, “We ask that you continue to reject the reinstatement of the Islamic Emirate.”

Currently, there is another country, Myanmar, that is represented by the envoy appointed by an ousted government.
