On Thursday, a UN envoy met Afghan Interior Minister Sirajuddin Haqqani.
The meeting between Deborah Lyons, head of the UN mission in Afghanistan, and Haqqani focused on humanitarian assistance, Shaheen had said.
"(Haqqani) stressed that UN personnel can conduct their work without any hurdle and deliver vital aid to the Afghan people," he said.
Afghanistan was already facing chronic poverty and drought but the situation has deteriorated since the Taliban took over last month with the disruption of aid, the departure of tens of thousands of people including government and aid workers and the collapse of much economic activity.
