IEA remains committed to Afghan women’s rights

Afghanistan Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) by welcoming parts of the United Nations Security Council’s recent resolution said that the decision to restrict Afghan women from working with the U.N. in Afghanistan is an internal social matter of Afghanistan that would not impact outside states. Following the UNSC resolution 2081 that has asked the Islamic Emirate to reverse its decision on restriction of Afghan women from working with the U.N in the country, the Islamic Emirate’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) in a statement clarified that the Islamic Emirate remains committed to ensuring all rights of Afghan women. “We remain committed to ensuring all rights of Afghan women while emphasizing that diversity must be respected and not politicized,” the ministry of foreign affairs said in the statement. “In line with international law and the strong commitment made by member states to respect the sovereign choices of Afghanistan, this is an internal social matter of Afghanistan that does not impact outside states,” the statement said. The Islamic Emirate has repeatedly made it clear that it has remained committed to ensuring all rights of the country’s women based on the Islamic Sharia and asked the international community to respect it. In late December last year, the Islamic Emirate banned women from working with non-governmental organizations. In the meantime, the country’s ministry of foreign affairs by pointing to the country’s humanitarian crisis said that the path to a post-conflict recovery requires the unconditional removal of UN, multilateral, and unilateral sanctions and restrictions on the country, in addition to provision of humanitarian and development assistance to the country. “Afghanistan’s ongoing humanitarian crisis is man-made, driven by economic restrictions on the country. While humanitarian assistance is appreciated, the reality is that this ongoing crisis can only be resolved by the removal of restrictions on the country and helping Afghanistan to address core climate change, economic, infrastructural, and development needs of its people,” the statement said. The country’s ministry of foreign affairs welcomed the UNSC’s acknowledgment that engagement is the only realistic path. “We stand ready to work jointly with neighboring, regional and world countries and organizations to tackle challenges such as humanitarian access, economic recovery, trade, transit, access to Afghan Central Bank assets, development, security, narcotics, and other areas of interest through continued dialogue and engagement,” the statement said. It is not the first time the Islamic Emirate has asked the world and regional countries for working jointly to tackle the challenges facing Afghanistan. The Islamic Emirate has repeatedly asked the world and regional countries to enter to positive engagement with the Islamic Emirate and cooperate with Afghanistan in tackling all challenges. It’s time that the world particularly the United Nations should closely work with the Islamic Emirate to address the ongoing challenges in the country. Mashal Noori
