Suicide, extra-judicial killings, kidnapping and torture in prisons dropped to zero, Stanekzai

KABUL: The UN Special Rapporteur on the situation of Human Rights in Afghanistan, Richard Bennett and accompanying delegation met with Deputy Foreign Minister Shir Muhammad Abbas Stanekzai, the ministry of foreign affairs said in a statement the other day. Bennett thanked MoFA for providing them with travel facilities and open access to sites. Welcoming Mr. Bennett, Deputy Minister Stanekzai said that human rights issues exist everywhere, from our neighboring to European countries, whereas Afghanistan has just come out of a near half-a-century war, according to the statement.
Referring to problems of the previous administration, the statement quoted Stankezay as saying “Compared to the past, the rate of suicide, extrajudicial killings of women, kidnapping and torture in prisons has dropped to zero.” The deputy foreign minister urged for the UN support in resolving economic challenges, banking restrictions, treatment of drug addicts and other problems.
Bennett pledged to talk with donor states to provide assistance to ending poverty in Afghanistan.
