KABUL (Pajhwok): The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) is all set to hold a meeting on the current situation in Afghanistan today (Monday).

It is the first session of the Security Council on Afghanistan after the Doha conference, hosted by UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.

A statement from the 15-member body UNSC said the meeting, coming days after the February 18-19 conference in Qatar, would be held behind closed doors.

The secretary-general will discuss the outcomes of the Doha meeting and the proposed appointment of a special representative for Afghanistan.

Guterres said the Doha meeting reached a consensus on proposals from an independent UN assessment on Afghanistan.

The assessment recommended the appointment of a UN special envoy. He said he would hold consultations on the envoy’s appointment.

“We want an Afghanistan at peace with itself and peace with its neighbours, able to assume commitments and international obligations as a sovereign state.”

The appointment of a UN special representative for resolving the Afghanistan crisis has become an important issue among the UN, IEA and some regional countries.
