Germany opposed Taliban participation in UN General Assembly

Heiko Maas

The speech of representatives of the Taliban movement (a terrorist organization banned in Russia ) at the UN General Assembly will not solve the problems of Afghanistan. German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas spoke out against their participation, TASS reports.

According to him, at present, the militants must ensure human rights, and especially women in Afghanistan. Maas also believes that the Taliban should separate themselves from terrorist groups and include representatives of other groups in the Afghan government.

Earlier, the press secretary of the UN Secretary General Stephane Dujarrick said that the Taliban expressed a desire to speak during the high-level week of the General Assembly. They also stated that the Afghan ambassador to the UN, appointed by the government of Ashraf Ghani, no longer represents the country's interests. Instead, the Taliban offered to appoint Mohammad Sohail Shahin.

The UN reported that the question of appointing a new permanent representative of Afghanistan will be decided at the accreditation commission.
