UN’s IEA seat denial unfair

The UN Credentials Committee has reportedly deferred decision on who will represent Afghanistan.
Few days ago, Russia, China and the U.S. on the 9-member committee gathered at the UN General Assembly to consider the credentials of all 193 members in the United Nations.
The seat is not yet clear if it would be kept by ex-regime ambassador or remain unoccupied.
The committee members have once again made the pretext that the current Afghan government was not inclusive nor were youths, experts and women at the decision making level.
The UN and other world stake-holders should have realized the fact that Afghanistan has opened a new chapter in the fields of government building, fighting corruption, human rights (particularly, women rights including their works and education) and how to secure good relations with the world.
This has time and again been stated by the authorities of the IEA and made clear that hundreds of women were working in professional administrations, girls of private schools and universities rejoined their classes while those of the state-owned institutions would soon return to their education centers.
Women are not restricted, nor their rights violated in any parts of the country and more are expected to be done for them in the future. World media are actively operating in Afghanistan after the takeover of the country by the Islamic Emirate and they witness all Afghans including women normally involved in their daily businesses all around the country, observing the Afghan accepted traditions, under peaceful atmosphere.
So, this is unfair that the UN and some world countries are still knowingly bringing the pretext of a broad based system and by denying Afghanistan’s seat, the UN is clearly ignoring the legitimate rights of the Afghan people, especially under the current pathetic conditions. As the IEA representative to the UN, Suhail Shaheen said, the decision was not based on legal rules and justice as it deprives the people of Afghanistan of their rights.
The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan is the main representative of the entire Afghans of different strata and deserve winning official recognition.
The UN should not disappoint the people of Afghanistan. It should revise its decision.
The IEA should be recognized and the seat should be granted to the real representative of the country, so that all available challenges and problems facing Afghans to be addressed.
