UN Security Council resolution on Afghanistan

At the UN Security Council meeting, the UNAMA mission in Afghanistan was extended for another year. The UN Security Council has renewed the mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) for a year until 17 March 2024, also asking Secretary General Guterres for a report on how the international community can continue its work in the country ruled by the Taliban .

A resolution unanimously adopted by the Council "underlines the crucial importance of maintaining the presence of Unama" and of the UN agencies in the country where the Taliban returned to power in August 2021, reaffirming the important role of the United Nations to "promote peace and stability" in the country. However, a second unanimously adopted resolution calls on Guterres to carry out an "independent assessment" by November 17 to provide "forward-looking recommendations for an integrated and coherent approach by all political, humanitarian and development actors".
