“The Secretary General did not send an invitation to the de facto authorities,” said the UN spokesman, Stephane Dujarric.
The representatives of the organization had to emphasize that the meeting will not focus on a possible international recognition of the Taliban administration, after the comments of the deputy head of the UN caused concern and confusion. Amina Mohammed, suggested last week that the Doha meeting “could take those small steps towards recognition”.
Instead, the meeting in Qatar on Monday and Tuesday will focus on reviving “international commitment around common goals for a sustainable way forward with regard to Afghanistan,” Dujarric also said.
The Taliban seized power in August 2021, when US-led forces withdrew after 20 years of war.
In December, the 193-member UN General Assembly approved the postponement, for the second time, of a decision on whether or not to recognize the Taliban administration.
The UN Security Council on Thursday unanimously condemned a ban imposed by the Taliban administration on Afghan women working for the UN in Afghanistan and called on Taliban leaders to “swiftly reverse” the decision.
The Taliban say they respect women’s rights in accordance with a strict interpretation of Islamic law. Taliban officials also say decisions on women aid workers are an “internal issue”.
