The US stated on Monday that it is actively examining with its allies and partners over reviewing its engagement with the Taliban in the light of numerous human rights cases of abuse accruing under the de facto government in Afghanistan.

The US State Department Spokesperson Ned Price while briefing in a press, stated that the US would continue its humanitarian support to the people of Afghanistan.

“We have provided about USD 1.1 billion worth of humanitarian assistance to the Afghan people, not to any Taliban people or any entity purporting to represent or serve the government,” he stated.

He added, “We are actively evaluating with allies; partners are the appropriate next steps. We have been clear that there will be a cost for the Taliban for these actions as absolutely everything remains on the table.”

This comes in response to the new policies introduced by de facto authorities in which Afghan women and girls are banned from going to universities and working with the international organization in the country.

Moreover, recently a high-level UN delegation travelled to Afghanistan and met with high-ranking Taliban officials to protect women and girls amid the growing concern over their alienation.

The delegations asked the defacto authorities to restore Afghan women’s and girls’ rights to education and work in international organizations.

The latest decree banning women from working in international organizations has faced several condemnations by Afghan women activists, Muslim countries, and international organizations.
