KABUL (Pajhwok): The Islamic Emirate says discussions at the UN Security Council meeting focused on only two ‘small and domestic topics’ (women’s education and work) in Afghanistan.

UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) head Roza Otunbayeva presented her report to the Security Council’s special session on Afghanistan, highlighting the country’s overall situation, particularly the rights of women and girls.

Otunbayeva said since seizing power in 2021, the acting government had issued over 50 decrees with the explicit aim of erasing women from public life.

Sima Bahous, executive director of UN Women, told the meeting that the acting government had imposed extreme patriarchal gender norms that flagrantly deny women their basic human rights.

Zabihullah Mujahid, Islamic Emirate spokesman, wrote on X: “Debates and opinions in the United Nations were diverted by raising only two minor and domestic topics (women’s education and work).”

Mujahid highlighted that Afghanistan’s security, amnesty, peace, stability, economic development, the creation of security forces, preparation of budget from internal revenue, the promotion of education in the whole country and dozens of other developments were not discussed at all and were paid no attention.

He said what should have been done were removal of the blacklist, lifting of sanctions, release of frozen Afghan assets, recognition of IEA and the seat of Afghanistan in the UN.

“The fact that there was no mention of these things and still politics of pressure is used, showing that selfish circles are still at war with us and they have also taken hostage the UN and are attacking us,” he added.

According to him, the Muslim and brave people of Afghanistan know their system and the emirate and they believe in their leaders, strongly support their system and give priority to teaching religion to the people of Afghanistan and the national interests are important to them.
