Naseer Ahmad Faiq becomes Afghanistan’s envoy to UN, replacing Isaczai

Afghanistan’s Permanent Mission to the United Nations announced late Thursday night that Naseer Ahmad Faiq has taken over the leadership of Afghanistan’s Permanent Mission to the United Nations, replacing Ghulam Mohammad Isaczai.
Afghanistan’s Permanent Mission to the United Nations wrote in an official tweet that Faiq is in charge of all activities of Afghanistan’s Permanent Mission to the United Nations.
The Mission said in a statement that Faiq would work with all members of the organization and United Nations officials to address the dire humanitarian situation currently facing Afghanistan, including the fundamental rights of all citizens, including women’s rights, girls and ethnic minorities.
The statement noted that mobilizing and providing humanitarian assistance and the effective delivery of aid to Afghanistan’s vulnerable people, who are starving in the winter cold, are among the priorities that require immediate attention.
However, the statement did not provide details by which authority Faiq was appointed as Afghanistan’s new permanent representative to the United Nations.
Faiq took over the leadership of Afghanistan’s Permanent Mission to the United Nations a day later, when Afghanistan’s ambassador to the United Nations, Ghulam Mohammad Isaczai, resigned on Wednesday, according to US media reports.
Isaczai, however, has not yet officially commented on his resignation from Afghanistan’s Permanent Mission to the United Nations.
Foreign Policy website quotes three Afghan diplomats as saying that Isaczairesigned for a reason that’s been appointed to another UN post.
Isaczai was appointed to this position in July 2021 by former Afghan President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani.
On December 6, the UN General Assembly decided that Ghulam Mohammad Isaczai would remain Afghanistan’s permanent representative to the United Nations, a move criticized by the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan [IEA], who called the decision “unfair.”
The new government, however, has appointed IEA’s political spokesman Suhail Shaheen as Afghanistan’s permanent representative to the United Nations.The post Naseer Ahmad Faiq becomes Afghanistan’s envoy to UN, replacing Isaczai first appeared on Ariana News.
