A decision on whether the Afghan Taliban government and Myanmar's military junta can send a UN ambassador to New York has been delayed for a second time, but the decision could be reconsidered in the next nine months, according to a report by the UN Credentials Committee.

The 193-member UN General Assembly is due to approve the report on Friday, which also delayed a decision on Libya's two rival rivals' claim to the country's seat at the UN.

The 9-member UN Credentials Committee includes Russia, China, and the US.

Diplomats mentioned that postponing decisions would leave the current envoys in their countries' seats.

Claims have been made again over the Myanmar and Afghanistan seats from the Taliban government and the Myanmar military junta against the envoys of the two governments they ousted last year.

Acceptance by the UN of the Taliban government or Myanmar military junta would be a step towards the international recognition that both sides seek.

Last Year, the General Assembly supported postponing a decision on the credentials of Myanmar and Afghanistan.

The UN Credentials Committee met on 12 December and agreed, without a vote, to “defer consideration of the credentials” of Myanmar, Afghanistan, and Libya “and to return to consideration of these credentials at a later date in the 77th session ending in mid-September next year.
