The United Nations Special Coordinator for Afghanistan has met with several active Afghan women in Turkey.
Feridun Sinirlioğlu, the UN Special Coordinator for Afghanistan, said on his social media platform X that during this four-day meeting, discussions were held about the human rights situation in Afghanistan.
He said these meetings involved various groups of women and men based outside Afghanistan.
At the same time, the “Women for Afghanistan Assembly” also said on a social media platform X that their discussions focused on the observance of fundamental women’s rights in Afghanistan. They added that both sides emphasized the unity among Afghans.
The Women for Afghanistan Assembly further highlighted the deprivation of women’s fundamental rights and added that women can promote unity within the country.
It is worth mentioning that Feridun Sinirlioğlu was appointed as the UN Special Coordinator for Afghanistan in April and is currently engaged in overseeing an assessment regarding Afghanistan.
Following their takeover of the country, the Taliban enforced severe limitations on women, depriving them of essential rights such as education and employment.
Despite widespread condemnation of these actions, the group has intensified its restrictions on the rights of women and girls. Notably, they have prohibited women from visiting the Band-e-Amir area, further tightening their control.
