US firmly to the Taliban. “This decision could have catastrophic consequences”
“I am very concerned about the Taliban ban on women working to distribute vital humanitarian aid to millions of people in Afghanistan,” he wrote. Blinken on Twitter.
“This decision could have catastrophic consequences for the Afghan people,” he added.
The oppressive policy of the Afghan authorities
The Taliban on Saturday ordered local and foreign NGOs to stop their employees from coming to work until further notice.
The order was issued by the Ministry of Economy. There were threats that non-compliant entities would have their licenses revoked to operate in Afghanistan. The decision was justified by the non-compliance by employees of non-governmental organizations with the rules of women’s dress introduced by the Taliban in Afghanistan.
Reuters notes that it is not known whether the ban also applies to UN agencies that operate in the country. It is also not clear whether the ban applies only to Afghan nationals or also to foreign employees of organizations operating in this country.
