Afghan envoy pulls out of UNGA debate

Afghanistan’s Ambassador to the United Nations pulled out of delivering an address to world leaders at the General Assembly later on Monday, a UN spokesperson said.

Ghulam Isaczai, who represented the previous government , had been due to defy the Taliban with a speech but his name was removed from the list of speakers on Monday.

A UNGA spokeswoman said Afghanistan’s mission to the UN had not cited a reason for the withdrawal.
