Taliban ask to participate in UN General Assembly session

The Taliban sent a letter to the UN requesting to attend General Assembly meetings and fielded spokesman Suhail Shaheen as a candidate for UN ambassador.

Amid disputes over who will represent Afghanistan at the international body, the Taliban said in the letter addressed to the office of the UN secretary-general that it should be represented at the UN, not by the ambassador under former President Ashraf Ghani's government.
