US senators wrote a letter to the UN Secretary-General, said - to exclude the Taliban from any seat in the UN
Emphasizing ever-increasing sanctions and human rights violations by the Taliban leadership, US senators urged UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to oust the Taliban from any seat in the United Nations. Four US Senators Robert Menendez, James E. Risch, Jean Shaheen, and Joni K. Ernst (Joni K. Ernst) wrote to the UN Secretary-General expressing concern over human rights violations in Afghanistan and asking it to take "meaningful action" to protect the human rights of Afghans.
Senators urge the United Nations
"We urge you not to give the Taliban a single seat in the United Nations when the UN Credentials Committee meets this September to determine diplomatic representation for Afghanistan," the senators said, Khama Press reported. '
Taliban wants to eradicate the human rights of Afghan women and girls
"The United Nations has an opportunity to take meaningful action that will send a clear, clear message to the world that its member states will protect the human rights of Afghans, especially women and girls," Khama Press quoted the letter as saying. "We must not stand with the Taliban when they seek to destroy the human rights of Afghan women and girls," the letter said.
"The UN travel waiver has failed to lead to meaningful dialogue with the Taliban nor inspire them to take concrete action to demonstrate their respect for the human rights and freedoms of the Afghan people," the senators said in the letter. In addition, Taliban leaders have abused the exemptions by traveling to Beijing and Moscow to establish diplomatic relations.
Voting held to implement travel ban exemption
According to the letter, the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) last month voted to reimpose travel ban exemptions for the leaders of the 13 Islamic emirates. The travel ban on only two education ministers was reinstated after the Islamic Emirate refused to open secondary schools for girls.
Human rights violations on the rise in Afghanistan
Human Rights Watch (HRW) has claimed several times that there has been an increase in human rights violations in Afghanistan. However, the Taliban have repeatedly denied claims of human rights violations in the country, saying such violations have decreased since coming to power in Afghanistan.
