Doha to host meeting on Afghanistan

Doha, the capital of Qatar, will host a two-day meeting on Afghanistan led by the Secretary-General of the United Nations. Although the detailed agenda of the Doha meeting has not been made public yet, it is said that discussions will focus on the situation in Afghanistan, the world’s interaction with the Islamic Emirate, the appointment of a UN special representative for Afghanistan, and the coordination of independent assessments by the UN Secretary-General’s special envoy for Afghanistan. “As we mentioned when we first announced the meeting, the objective is to discuss how to approach increasing international engagement in a more coherent, coordinated and structured manner, including through consideration of the recommendations of the independent assessment on Afghanistan,” said Stéphane Dujarric, Spokesperson for the UN Secretary-General. Notable representatives from various countries and international organizations are expected to participate in this meeting. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Qatar confirmed that representatives from 25 to 28 countries have been invited to participate in the Doha meeting regarding Afghanistan. According to a list of diplomats made available to the media, some guests have arrived in Doha and will attend this meeting. The list includes the names of special representatives of countries, such as special envoys from Pakistan, Iran, Russia, China, Turkiye, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan. Meanwhile, Esmaeil Baghaei Hamaneh, the Special Representative of Uzbekistan for Afghanistan, interviewed Hassan Hamza Hashem, the Qatari Ambassador to Afghanistan, about the importance of holding the Doha meeting on Afghanistan. “Both sides emphasized that this meeting plays a crucial role in coordinating the actions of the international community to find practical solutions for stabilizing the situation in Afghanistan, as well as providing humanitarian assistance to the people of Afghanistan, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Uzbekistan said in a statement. The Islamic Emirate had previously announced that it had been invited by the United Nations to participate in the Doha meeting; however, it has not yet been clarified whether a representative from the Islamic Emirate will participate in this meeting or not. The spokesperson for the Islamic Emirate, Zabihullah Mujahid, stated it is still unclear whether a representative from the Islamic Emirate will participate in the Doha meeting or not. However, he stated that the Islamic Emirate has different desires and expectations from this meeting, whether they participate or not. “Until our position is clear, we cannot express our expectations because if we attend and participate, we will have one kind of expectation, and if we do not participate, we will have another expectation,” Mujahid said. The second round of the Doha meeting hosted by António Guterres, the Secretary-General of the United Nations on Afghanistan, is being held amidst expectations and criticisms. However, Wali Forozan, an international relations expert, does not believe in the outcome of the Doha meeting for changing the political situation in Afghanistan. “Ultimately, the outcome of this meeting is more interaction with the Islamic Emirate, the reopening of some embassies, and humanitarian and economic assistance, which may be practical after this meeting,” Forozan said. “The upcoming negotiations and the Doha meeting on Afghanistan are important. If the Islamic Emirate also participates, it is perfect because they will see what decisions the world is making,” said Wais Nasiri, a political analyst. Although the Islamic Emirate has not recently commented on its participation in this meeting, it had previously stated that it had shared its conditions for participating in the Doha meeting with the United Nations.
