A United Nations credentials committee on Wednesday decided against allowing the Taliban to represent Afghanistan at the world body. reports citing foreign media that after a closed-door meeting on Wednesday, the chairwoman of the nine-nation Credentials Committee of the General Assembly, which approves the diplomatic representation of each U.N. member state, said the committee had chosen to defer its decision on who will represent Afghanistan.

“The report of the committee will be made public once it has been issued, for the consideration by the General Assembly,” she added.

The decision means Afghanistan’s Taliban and Myanmar’s junta will not be allowed to represent their countries for now at the United Nations. With the deferral, committee members are not expected to make a decision until the next annual General Assembly gathering in September 2022, according to The New York Times.

The Taliban terrorist group has been pushing for international recognition since it seized control of the Afghan capital of Kabul on Aug.15, overthrowing the NATO and U.S.-backed government after two decades of war.
