International Concern over Escalation of Human Rights Situation in Afghanistan; Mujahid: All Rights are Respected

Bayan News – The Foreign Ministers of 12 countries described the human rights situation in Afghanistan as horrific during a joint statement issued on the sidelines of the Munich Security Conference, holding the Taliban responsible for this situation. However, the Taliban spokesperson considers these concerns unfounded.

The statement was issued yesterday (February 17) by the Foreign Ministers of Romania, the Netherlands, Mongolia, Kosovo, Germany, France, Canada, Bulgaria, Belgium, Albania, and Romania.

The statement states, “The Taliban are responsible for one of the most severe and horrific human rights situations worldwide.”

In the statement, they emphasized that the Taliban jeopardize the future of Afghanistan by excluding half of the country’s population and stressed that they (the Taliban) should allow girls to pursue secondary and higher education based on international standards.

However, Zabihullah Mujahid, the Taliban spokesperson, responded to these concerns by stating that the expressed concerns at the Munich Conference are baseless and that Afghanistan has become secure after years.

Mujahid wrote on the X platform today, Monday (February 18), “Including women, the rights of all citizens of the country are being respected, and the people have physical, financial, dignity, and mental security.”

The Taliban spokesperson further wrote that the doors of the courts are open for all Afghans without discrimination, and their rights are being addressed.

According to him, Afghanistan is moving towards economic prosperity, and extraordinary progress has been made in the health, education, and infrastructure sectors, with better plans in place.

The Taliban spokesperson considered these concerns as propaganda and manipulation, emphasizing that Afghanistan will continue its progress and will not be swayed by any announcements or provocations.
