UN says women’s rights will be at the forefront of Doha meeting discussions

Bayan News – Concurrent with the growing criticism of the absence of women in the third Doha meeting, the United Nations has announced that human rights and women’s rights will be at the forefront of all Doha discussions.

Stéphane Dujarric, the spokesperson for the UN Secretary-General, told reporters on Sunday (June 23) that the Doha meetings are part of a process, not a one-time event, and that women and civil society remain part of it.

He said, “Human rights and the rights of women and girls will certainly be at the forefront of the UN in all the discussions.”

According to Dujarric, the goal of the Doha meeting is to encourage the Taliban to engage with the international community through a coordinated and structured approach for the benefit of the Afghan people.

The Doha meeting, which is scheduled to be hosted by the United Nations for another week, will not have the participation of women representatives and civil society.

The absence of women and civil society activists in this meeting has drawn widespread criticism against the UN’s actions.
