Afghanistan’s acting Foreign Minister Amir Khan Muttaqi sent a letter to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, asking to accept Shaheen’s nomination, Pajhwok news agency reported.

According to the source, Muttaqi asked to speak during the annual high-level meeting of the UN General Assembly.

Following the Taliban’s takeover, Afghanistan is facing a humanitarian crisis and is in desperate need of international assistance.

The Taliban control a nation more impoverished than two decades ago, in which 11 million people sought refuge outside the country, five millions are internally displaced and most of the population are on the brink of starvation.
