France “condemns the proliferation of human rights violations” in Afghanistan

AA / Paris / Feïza Ben Mohamed

France “condemns in the strongest terms the multiplication of serious and continuous violations of human rights” in Afghanistan, one year after the capture of Kabul by the Taliban, in a statement published Monday by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Paris also reaffirms “its solidarity and support for Afghans” and recalls having “sent, since August 15, 2021, more than 120 million euros in humanitarian aid to the Afghan population”.

Diplomacy ensures that it wants to remain mobilized “with its European and international partners in favor of an Afghanistan in peace, sovereign and respectful of the rights and freedoms of all its citizens”.

“Despite their commitments, the decisions taken by the Taliban for a year illustrate their failure to respect the expectations of the international community formulated by resolution 2593 of the United Nations Security Council”, points out, moreover, France.

“These five requirements provided for: the safe and unhindered departure of Afghans and all foreign nationals wishing to leave the country, the guarantee of humanitarian access throughout Afghan territory, the respect of the rights of the rights, and in particular the rights of women and girls, the severing of all direct or indirect links, including financial ones, with terrorist groups, and in particular with Al Qaeda, the establishment of a transitional government which is representative of the entire Afghan people and responds to the aspirations of the population”, recalls French diplomacy.

In detail, the country criticizes the Taliban regime for the violation “of human rights, in particular against Afghan women and girls, to whom the Taliban have notably prohibited any movement of more than 72 kilometers in the absence as a male parent, to fly alone and to go to secondary school”.

As a reminder, France left Afghanistan at the end of August, following the hasty withdrawal of the United States caused by the fall of Kabul on August 15, 2021.

The United States intervened in Afghanistan since the attack of September 11, 2001, to drive out the Taliban, then in power. It is the longest war in the country’s history.
