UN Considers Lifting Some Sanctions, Removing Taliban From Terrorist List


UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres called for exceptions in the sanctions regime against the Taliban in order to facilitate interaction with them.

Asked if he considers it appropriate at some point to exclude the Taliban from the list of terrorist organizations, Guterres noted that the organization’s member countries will decide when the right moment will come.

“As you know, the Americans asked for some exceptions for their own negotiations with the Taliban. So I believe that we must create conditions <…> and ensure the effective distribution of humanitarian aid,” the UN Secretary General stressed.
