Senior Taliban Officials: We Have Secured Women’s Fundamental Rights

Bayan News – Amir Khan Muttaqi, the Taliban’s Foreign Minister, and Sirajuddin Haqqani, the Minister of Interior, addressed the issue of securing the fundamental rights of women in Afghanistan in separate meetings and assured that the fundamental rights of women in the country have been ensured.

Amir Khan Muttaqi met with Tariq Ali Bakheet, the Deputy Secretary-General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, as well as officials from human rights organizations, women’s affairs, and social affairs of the organization on Sunday, April 20th.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs statement states: “The Minister of Foreign Affairs provided information regarding the end of bloodshed in the country, the provision of security, the elimination of the ISIS group, the active role of women in the health, education, trade, and other sectors, and the attention of the Islamic Emirate’s leadership to ensuring women’s fundamental rights, among others.”

The Deputy Secretary-General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation added in his remarks that his visit to Afghanistan is part of the organization’s positive interaction with the Taliban.

Taliban Does Not Act Based on the World’s Opinion

In a separate meeting with a group of Afghan intellectuals residing in Europe, Sirajuddin Haqqani, referring to ensuring women’s rights and girls’ education, stated that the issue of girls’ education is related to the Taliban, who will provide the necessary conditions for it.

The Taliban’s Minister of Interior clearly stated that the Taliban will never accept the world’s opinion.

Haqqani said, “Education is for our children, and no one cares more about our children than ourselves.”

According to Bakhtar News Agency, Sirajuddin Haqqani stated that the Taliban seeks relationships based on mutual respect with the international community and added that the group’s leader, Mullah Hibatullah, in his Eid message, “called on the world to establish positive relations.”

According to the Minister of Interior, the world must accept that Afghanistan is an independent country and, at the same time, does not interfere in the internal affairs of other countries and does not allow others to interfere and express opinions about the Taliban’s internal affairs.

It should be noted that the international community has repeatedly called on the Taliban to lift the educational restrictions imposed on women and girls in Afghanistan.
