United States special representative for Afghanistan Thomas West has said that he was hopeful that the Taliban will reverse their decision over banning teenage girls from going to schools and allow all Afghan girls to get an education.

Speaking at Doha Forum on Saturday West added that he hoped to witness the Taliban announcing all Afghan girls going back to schools in the coming days.

The special representative accused the Taliban of breaching the promises they had made to the Afghan people.

“I believe hope is not lost. I’ve talked to a lot of Afghans here who also believe that. I’m hopeful that we will see a reversal of this decision in the coming days.” West added.

Thomas West further added that girls’ education is of immense importance for the international community and Afghan people want to see boys and girls still going to schools.

The US abruptly called off meetings with the Taliban in the Qatari capital Doha that were planned to be staged on Saturday and Sunday.
