Kabul: The United Nations is holding a closed-door international meeting on Afghanistan in Qatar between 1-2 May in a bid to find “durable way forward” for the country, AFP reported on Wednesday.
The international organisation’s Secretary-General Antonio Guterres will convene the meeting in the Gulf state, his spokesperson Stephane Dujarric confirmed to reporters.
“The purpose of this kind of small group meeting is for us to strengthen the international engagement around the common objectives for a durable way forward on the situation in Afghanistan,” Dujarric said, as quoted by AFP.
Dujarric added that officials from the international community aim to “clarify expectations” on several issues in Afghanistan, at the top of which is strict policies towards women and girls in Kabul.
However, the UN did not disclose further details on attendees and it remains unclear whether the Afghan rulers will be attended.
