The UN calls on talks that would lead to creating a new government in Afghanistan. This is supposed to protect human rights in this country and avoid grave violations of these rights. Antonio Guterres, the UN Secretary General said so during the session of UN Security Council.
"We cannot and must not abandon the people of Afghanistan," he said, urging the Council to apply "all tools at its disposal" so as to guarantee protection against a terrorist threat coming from Afghanistan; that puts human rights in that country in danger, Guterres said as quoted by Reuters.
Chinese delegate in the UN Security Council Geng Shuang shared that view, claiming that his country hopes that "Taliban... [would] make a clean break with the terrorist organizations."
The European Parliament made an official comment on the situation in Afghanistan. Specifically, the authority claimed there was a serious issue regarding women in this country after the Taliban fighters took power there. The statement appeared on the European Parliament's website.
"Now the Taliban have seized control of Kabul, a new reign of terror for people living in Afghanistan has begun. For Afghan women and girls, this means systemic and brutal oppression in all aspects of life. In Taliban-controlled areas, women's universities have been closed, they are denying girls access to education, and women are sold as sex slaves", said Evelyn Regner, the Chair of the European Parliament’s committee on women’s rights and gender equality.
