Combined Statement of Female Foreign Ministers on the occasion from the re-opening of schools in Afghanistan

“The undeniable rights and opportunities achieved for : and by – girls plus women in Afghanistan within recent decades must be maintained and expanded. Let their hopes and expectations grow, as truly equal associates of Afghan society. ” “Every spring, the re-opening of colleges in Afghanistan comes along with great hopes and expectations associated with millions of students: to meet classmates and friends again, to resume learning and training, and to take another advance in life. Statement by the Foreign Ministers of Albania, Andorra, Sydney, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Canada, Estonia, Germany, Iceland, Indonesia, Kosovo, Malawi, Mongolia, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, Tonga and the United Kingdom “We will watch closely whether the Taliban provide on their assurances. We will calculate them by their actions, not really by their words. The range and extent of our countries’ engagement in Afghanistan beyond humanitarian assistance will be associated with achievements in this regard.   “As women and as foreign ministers, we are deeply disappointed plus concerned that girls within Afghanistan are being denied entry to secondary schools this springtime. The Taliban’s decision in order to suspend secondary classes until further notice is particularly disturbing as we repeatedly heard their particular commitments to open all colleges for all children. March 25, 2022 – Ottawa, Ontario “Access to training is a human right to which every woman and every girl will be entitled. Individually, girls’ education and women’s empowerment result in a better life, help to alleviate economic challenges for their households, and are the basis for working out social rights and politics representation. Collectively, girls and women contribute with their education to the country’s development and welfare, and to peace, security and social justice. No country can afford to not take advantage of the potential and talent from the entire people. “We urge the Taliban to live up to their commitments to the Afghan people and also to adhere to the international events that Afghanistan has subscribed to. We call upon the particular Taliban to reverse their particular recent decision and to give equal access to all levels of education, in all provinces of the country. Practical difficulties within implementing a non-discriminatory educational policy must be overcome.
