At a meeting of the Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee, Rina Amiri, the U.S. representative for Afghan women’s affairs, emphasized that the United States should not support the normalization of relations with the Taliban.

Rina Amiri emphasized that the Taliban’s policies against women should be made clear, adding, “We must make it clear to the Taliban that human rights and women’s rights are paramount for the United States.”

The U.S. representative for Afghan women’s affairs stressed that despite the Taliban’s promises, the struggle to preserve human rights in Afghanistan has become challenging. She mentioned that minorities, especially the Hazaras, are at risk, and the Taliban’s restrictions against women have increased.

During the meeting held on Thursday, she stated that the Taliban has attempted to remove women from the public sphere and has detained women activists.

Recently, the Taliban has sparked controversy and faced significant condemnation and criticism for detaining dozens of women in various parts of Kabul for dress code violations.

Ms. Amiri further added that considering the Taliban’s track record, the path forward is difficult. She stated, “Let us stand by Afghan women and not victimize them.”

Amiri emphasized that support for women is a global endeavour, calling for collaboration between Islamic countries and Western nations. She highlighted the importance of amplifying and reflecting the voices of Afghan women, asserting that the most effective support for Afghanistan lies in upholding human rights.
