European Union (EU) and Central Asia special envoy for Afghanistan met in Turkmenistan Capital, Ashgabat, on Friday, where they urged the de facto regime to lift all bans on Afghan girls and women that restricted their rights to education, work and participation in public life.

The envoy said in a joint statement that these restrictions have “detrimental effects on the ability of the international community to deliver humanitarian aid to the Afghan people, and need to be lifted for the Afghan economy to prosper, and ultimately for Afghanistan to achieve long-term stability and peace.”

They also “underlined the importance of establishing an inclusive and representative government and upholding all Afghans’ civil, political, social economic and cultural rights.”

The participants also discussed the prospect of security and stability in the country and urged the Taliban authorities to prevent the country from being hideouts for the militants and extremists.

The representatives also “called on the Taliban-ruled Afghanistan to prevent Afghan soil from being used as a safe haven for hosting, planning, training, financing, or exporting terrorism and violent extremism to other countries.”

The participants claimed that the region’s security is interlinked with the security of Afghanistan, and the security dynamic will spill over to the neighbouring countries and regions.

Meanwhile, the participants discussed the prospects and challenges ahead of Afghanistan and the country’s economic stabilisation.
