The Australian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has appointed Amanda McGregor as the new Special Representative for Afghanistan.

On Wednesday, July 3rd, Australian Foreign Minister Penny Wong stated that McGregor would carry out her mission from Qatar.

The ministry’s statement emphasized Australia’s ongoing support for the people of Afghanistan over the past two years in collaboration with the international community, particularly focusing on women’s and girls’ rights.

Minister Wong highlighted McGregor’s previous diplomatic roles at Australian embassies in Canada and Lebanon, where she also served as a senior advisor to the Prime Minister and Cabinet.

The Australian Ministry of Foreign Affairs also stated, “Our diplomats are drivers of Australia’s engagement with the world. They create influence and advance the country’s national interests abroad.”

It should be noted that Australia has strongly condemned the Taliban’s policies towards women’s and girls’ rights over the past two years and continues to emphasize humanitarian aid to Afghanistan.

    Since August 2021, the international community has refused to recognize the Taliban due to their harsh and suppressive policies, human rights violations, and severe restrictions on women’s rights and education.

    This lack of recognition underscores global concerns about the Taliban’s governance and their commitment to basic human rights, prompting ongoing humanitarian efforts to support Afghanistan’s people.
