Following conversations with a number of Afghan women in Turkey, Karen Decker, the Chargé d’Affaires of the US Mission in Afghanistan, said that she shares their “concerns and their hope.”

Decker, the US official for Afghanistan, stated on Friday, October 28, via her Twitter handle that the US is continuing to make a concerted effort for the people of the US and Afghanistan.

She also mentioned speaking with other Afghan women in Turkey, including journalist and reporter Nargis Hurakhsh and investigative journalist Somaia Valizadeh. Decker described her trip to Turkey as “productive” and stated that she “appreciated the honesty of Afghan women.”

According to Karen Decker, the “listening tours” prove that Afghans all across the world are concerned about the future of their country. According to reports, Karen went to Turkey three days ago to meet with several journalists and activists from civil society.

This comes as the US Special Representative for Afghanistan, Thomas West, spoke with former Afghan President Hamid Karzai over the telephone, stressing the need for a “genuine” national dialogue.

The US representative and the former Afghan president discussed the imperative of reopening schools for girls in Afghanistan, according to a brief statement by West posted on Twitter.

West reaffirmed that the international community would continue to put in the effort to provide basic and humanitarian needs, stating that the US need the Taliban to do their role, lessen interference with aid, and govern in a way that invites investment and the return of trained professionals.
