The UN Security Council condemns the Taliban ban. Last Minute WORLD headlines and events


The UN Security Council condemned the Taliban administration’s ban on women attending universities or working for humanitarian organizations in Afghanistan. The Council called for the full, equal and meaningful participation of women and girls in the public life of the country.

The 15-member council unanimously agreed that the ban on women and girls from colleges and universities in Afghanistan “represents a growing erosion of respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms.”

In a Twitter statement, UN Secretary-General António Guterres stressed that the restrictions “are an unjustified violation of human rights and must be lifted.” “The silence and silence on women and girls continues to do a lot of damage to the potential of the Afghan people,” Guterres said.

The ban on universities for women was announced last week during a UN Security Council meeting in New York on the Afghan agenda. Since March, girls have also been banned from attending secondary schools.

The Council also noted that the ban on the work of women humanitarian workers, announced on Saturday, will have “serious and immediate consequences for humanitarian operations in the country”, including for UN operations.

Expressing its full support for the United Nations political mission in Afghanistan, known as UNAMA for short, the Security Council said: “These restrictions are contrary to the expectations of the international community, as well as the obligations that the Taliban have made to the Afghan people.”

Four major global aid organizations, whose humanitarian efforts have reached millions of Afghans, announced on Sunday that they are suspending their activities on the grounds that they cannot run their programs without working women.

UN Assistant Secretary General for Humanitarian Assistance Martin Griffiths told the Security Council last week that 97 percent of Afghans live in poverty, two-thirds of the population needs help to survive, 20 million people face acute hunger and 1. He said that .1 millions of girls could not go to school because of the ban.
