Afghan Embassy in India rejects
India’s recognition for the new Taliban government is important as India is still a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council and the UNSC Sanctions Committee is also headed to India.
The United Nations will also have to decide on a new Taliban government as the validity of the UN Cooperation Mission in Afghanistan expires this month.
The UNSC Sanctions Committee will decide whether to continue or lift the sanctions as several Taliban cabinet members are on the list of terrorists. Of the 33, 17 are cabinet members who are on the UN list of terrorists. That is, more than half the cabinet ministers.
