UN envoy calls for Taliban to enhance engagement with International community

UNITED NATIONS – The UN envoy for Afghanistan has encouraged the Taliban to demonstrate their willingness to engage with the international community in the future.

Deborah Lyons, the UN secretary-special general's representative for Afghanistan, told the Security Council meeting on the situation in Afghanistan that she hoped the Taliban would demonstrate commitment to a "pathway" towards future engagement with the international community to ensure critical donor funds are "not diverted or misused," noting that some donors are "understandably hesitant" to contribute financially to help with the country's humanitarian crisis. According to source, the UN team in the nation unveiled the One-UN Transitional Engagement Framework (TEF) on Wednesday, a USD 3.6 billion plan to save lives and maintain health, education, and other key services through 2022.

Since the Taliban established the de facto authority of the war-torn country last year, the UN has remained committed to providing help alongside aid partners, reaching nearly 18 million people, according to the ambassador.
