UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has slammed the Taliban’s “broken” promises to Afghan women and girls

New York (US) – I am concerned about women and girls in Afghanistan. I am particularly alarmed to see promises made to Afghan women and girls by the Taliban being broken.

I strongly appeal to the Taliban to keep their promises to women and girls and fulfil their obligations under international human rights and humanitarian law, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres slammed the Taliban Government in Afghanistan. After the first talk of the delegation of the Taliban Government with the US Government, Guterres placed the United Nation’s point of view before them.
