On January 30-31, US Special Representative for Afghanistan Thomas West visited Pakistan and met with top authorities, including army head General Syed Asim Munir, to address terrorism and Afghan Taliban’s prohibition on females’ education.

On Tuesday, the US envoy thanked Pakistan for its hospitality during two days of productive Afghanistan negotiations in a tweet from his official account.

West stated that he met with General Asim Munir, Ambassador Muhammad Sadiq, and Foreign Secretary Asad Majeed Khan.

During the sessions, the envoy claimed they discussed terrorism and security circumstances, “need for international solidarity, and the harmful impact of Taliban edicts on millions of Afghans’ access to crucial aid and education“.

The US envoy also requested support for the UN’s critical efforts and implementers in reversing the de facto rulers’ prohibition on women humanitarian workers and female education.

“I met brave Afghan women and heard essential demands and observations: women-headed households in Afghanistan are suffering, and the international community must prioritize their needs,” he continued.

The US point person for Afghanistan said women and girls confined to home are enduring significant mental and psychological stressors,

“without an opportunity to roam freely, get educated”.
