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.

"We must not turn a blind eye to a humanitarian crisis which will specifically affect women and girls in Afghanistan. All EU member states must work together to ensure the safe passage out of the country for anyone in danger. All further negotiations must guarantee the safety and well-being of Afghan women and girls", the EU official added.
