G7 tells Taliban to urgently reverse women aid workers ban

New Delhi, 29/12: G7 foreign ministers on Thursday called on the Taliban to “urgently reverse” a ban on women working in Afghanistan’s aid sector, a joint statement said.



The ministers said they were “gravely concerned that the Taliban’s reckless and dangerous order barring female employees of national and international non-governmental organisations (NGOs) from the workplace puts at risk millions of Afghans who depend on humanitarian assistance for their survival.”


“We call on the Taliban to urgently reverse this decision,” they said in the statement issued by Britain’s foreign ministry.
