International community largely united in supporting Afghanistan, says Amiri

The U.S. special envoy for Afghanistan women and human rights indicated that outcomes from a recent meeting in Doha showed the international community remains “largely united” in supporting Afghanistan’s people.

The meeting of special envoys on Afghanistan, chaired by United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Feb. 18-19, focused on the country’s current situation and ways to reintegrate it into the international structure. This includes appointing a new U.N. special envoy.

Referring to the Doha meeting, Amiri said the international community is “largely united and committed to supporting the Afghan people and their struggle for economic stability, security and respect for their rights, particularly addressing the plight of Afghan women and girls.”

She also highlighted the unified call from Afghanistan’s civil society representatives for the international community to “factor in the dire situation of Afghan women when assessing the security situation in Afghanistan” and the importance of including Afghan women and civil society in “deliberations on Afghanistan.”
