Vjosa Osmani, the President of Kosovo, awarded the Kosovo Presidential Medal of Courage to Afghan women at an event titled “International Women, Peace, and Security Conference”.

According to reports, the second International Women, Peace, and Security Conference on Monday, April 15th, aimed at dialogue on security, peace, and amplifying the voices of survivors of sexual violence.

This award was presented by the President of Kosovo to Zahra Nader, Editor-in-Chief of Zan Times, Medina Darwazi, Arefa Fatimi, and several other female representatives from Afghanistan.

President Osmani also emphasized Kosovo’s support for the struggles of Afghanistan’s women during the award ceremony.

Since the Taliban seized control of Afghanistan, they have enforced repressive policies that severely curtail human rights and women’s rights, limiting access to education, employment, freedom of movement, and basic rights.

Despite widespread domestic and international condemnation, the Taliban has yet to lift these restrictive policies, further exacerbating the suffering of the Afghan people and drawing continued criticism from the global community.

It is worth noting that during this event, several prominent international figures including Hillary Clinton, former U.S. Secretary of State, the President of Slovenia, the President of Albania, and representatives from other countries participated both online and in person to deliver speeches.

Last year, the Kosovo Presidential Medal of Courage was awarded to women from Ukraine.
