The notorious terror organization has revealed its newly-appointed ambassador to the United Nations accompanied with hopes of speaking to the General Assembly; Many doubt the Taliban’s potential of being formally recognized at the UN.
Early this week, the Taliban appointed its first ambassador to the United Nations after overthrowing the government of Afghanistan in recent weeks. The Afghanistan-based terror group additionally requested permission to speak on the floor of the UN General Assembly in the future. However, it’s believed that the group will have a significant uphill battle to receive any formal recognition.
The Taliban appointed Suhail Shaheen as its unrecognized ambassador, who is based out of Doha, Qatar – one country that believes itself to be a mediator in the aftermath of the Afghanistan conflict.
Afghanistan fell into the hands of the Taliban over the course of several months, coming to its climax mid-August following the withdrawal of US troops at the command of President Joe Biden.
