The Taliban government in Afghanistan has stated that until they are recognized as a member of the United Nations, they are not obligated to adhere to UN laws, said Taliban spokesperson Zabiullah Mujahid. However, in the event of Kabul's recognition, the government will adhere to international norms in accordance with Sharia, Zakon.kz reports.
Zabiullah Mujahid emphasized the necessity of having a representative of the Taliban in the UN, according to Tolo News.
"We should have membership like many other countries. The rights of the Afghan people should be represented in the UN," stated Zabiullah Mujahid.
Afghanistan's Permanent Representative to the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, Nasir Ahmad Andisha, remarked that the UN plays an important role in Afghanistan.
On November 19, it marked 77 years since Afghanistan joined the UN.
The Taliban assumed control of the Afghan government after then-President Ashraf Ghani fled the country. He was compelled to leave his post due to the withdrawal of the US military contingent from Afghanistan, along with the withdrawal of anti-terrorism coalition forces led by the US in 2021.
