The United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has said that women and girls anywhere deserve to live a dignified and respectful life.
The UN Chief on Friday in a Tweet said, “We must not remain silent in the face of targeted attacks against women and girls anywhere in the world.”
This comes as women and girls in Afghanistan under the Taliban administration have been systematically deprived of basic natural rights.
The UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres in a series of tweets on Friday urged everyone to stand with women who are struggling for their basic rights.
Currently, Afghan women are living in the worst possible situation, who have been barred from their basic rights including getting a university education and working for government or non-government organizations.
The Taliban have restricted women’s freedoms and do not accept the international community’s proposals to lift these restrictions and allow women and girls to benefit from their civic rights.
The UN organized a meeting from May 1-2 with the participation of representatives from 25 countries and international organizations in Doha Qatar.
Amina Mohammed, Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations stated that the meeting was aimed at assessing the conditions for formally recognizing the Taliban regime. However, participants in this meeting did not reach a collective agreement, and the UN Chief said another gathering on Afghanistan issues will be held in the near future.
