KABUL (Pajhwok): The US special representative for Afghanistan and a Swedish diplomat have discussed a recent wave of attacks on civilians in the war-torn country.

Thomas West tweeted on Tuesday that he met Niclas Kvarnstrom, head of Department for Asia and the Pacific at the Swedish Foreign Ministry.

“Met Niclas Kvarnstrom, Andreas von Uexkull & their colleagues yesterday to discuss the humanitarian response,” west wrote.

The rights of all Afghans, recent attacks on civilians and the economic situation in Afghanistan were discussed in detail, the diplomat added.

“Grateful for Sweden’s partnership, expertise & robust commitment to the Afghan people,” the US special representative continued.

More than 50 girls and boys had lost their lives in a series of grave rights violations in Afghanistan in one week alone, a senior UNICEF official said earlier in the week.
