Doha3; Afghan women protesters accuse the UN of siding with the Taliban

Bayan News – A group of protesting Afghan women issued a joint statement harshly criticizing UNAMA’s (United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan) actions towards Afghanistan, saying that the United Nations is supporting the Taliban.

The joint statement of the protesting women was released yesterday (June 22) and stated that Roza Otunbayeva, the UNAMA chief in Kabul, at the order of the US, invited the Taliban to the Doha meeting and ignored the situation of the Afghan people, especially women.

The statement said: “Ms. Otunbayeva shamelessly and against all existing international and legal rules said that the culture of Afghanistan is that women have a secondary position and will not attend the third meeting, and whitewashed the Taliban.”
