Rina Amiri, U.S. Special Representative for Afghanistan’s Women, met with Lulwa Al-Khater, Qatar’s Minister of State for International Cooperation, on the sidelines of the third Doha summit to discuss support for women and girls in Afghanistan.

Qatar’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated on Monday, July 1st, that the meeting emphasized the importance of economic stability and support for initiatives empowering women in Afghanistan.

The U.S. Special Representative for Afghan Women continues to express gratitude to Qatar for hosting the third Doha summit.

Ms. Amiri highlighted discussions at the Doha summit concerning the human rights situation of women and civil society in Afghanistan, as advocated by the United Nations.

She also previously mentioned meeting with Thomas West, the U.S. Special Representative for Afghanistan, emphasizing, “We will continue extensive negotiations during and after the third Doha summit to support a comprehensive framework for women and civil society. Ultimately, Afghanistan’s peace, security, and stability challenges cannot be resolved without their inclusion.”

The absence of women at the third Doha summit has also sparked reactions.

International stakeholders are urging inclusive dialogues prioritising Afghan women’s rights and participation in all aspects of the country’s reconstruction.

The outcomes of the third Doha summit will be pivotal in shaping international support for Afghanistan’s development, with a particular focus on gender equality and human rights.

Moving forward, continued engagement and advocacy are crucial to ensuring that Afghan women are integral to the peace and stability of their nation.
