UAE condemns Taliban’s decision to ban women from NGOs


New York: Ambassador Lana Nusseibeh, Assistant Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation for Political Affairs and UAE Permanent Representative to the United Nations, said the UAE strongly condemns the Taliban’s decision to ban women from working in domestic and international non-military-government organizations in Afghanistan.

Ambassador Nusseibeh warned that at a time when two-thirds of the Afghan population is in need of humanitarian assistance and six million people are at risk of starvation, the decision will further impede the delivery of humanitarian relief in the country and affect the most vulnerable in society, Including women, children and the elderly.

She stressed that the decision, which follows the Taliban’s recent unjustifiable ban on women and girls’ access to higher education, violates UN Security Council Resolution 2615 and will undoubtedly exacerbate humanitarian suffering in Afghanistan.

Furthermore, she emphasized that Islam respects the role of women and upholds their rights.

In this regard, Ambassador Nusseibeh emphasized the importance of the full and equal participation of women and girls in all aspects of life.

The UAE will work with regional and international partners in its unwavering commitment to the sovereignty, stability, security and prosperity of Afghanistan.

She concluded by emphasizing that the future well-being of Afghanistan and its people depended on the full inclusion of women and girls in society.
