Claiming that an isolating approach of Taliban would do no good to Afghanistan and its people, the Deputy Spokesperson of the Islamic Emirate Bilal Karimi called out the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) to lift all the sanctions related to travel bans, saying there should be a less gap between the Islamic Emirate and the world, TOLOnews reported on Friday.

Earlier in September, Human Rights Watch urged the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) not to extend the existing government officials’ travel exemption as a result of the closure of girls’ schools in Afghanistan and the Taliban’s atrocities against women and girls in the war-torn nation.

The UN Security Council hasn’t renewed the Taliban leaders’ exemption from the travel ban in more than three months.

“The Taliban should respond to the demands of the international community as a standard country and a standard government,” said a former diplomat, Aziz Marij.

According to the analysts, one of the key reasons for not extending the travel exemption for officials of the Islamic Emirate is the failure of the Taliban to implement the Doha Agreement.

“The Taliban group failed to uphold its obligations to the international community and the Afghan people, one of which is to respect Afghan citizens’ fundamental rights,” said Nematullah Bizhan, international relations expert.

The Security Council should permanently end all exemptions to the travel bans that are covering and restricting some Taliban leaders. The Security Council should be looking to add more Taliban leaders to the list of people subject to travel bans and to add other measures and based on their involvement in human rights violations,” said the associate director of the women’s rights division at Human Rights Watch, Heather Barr.

Moreover, in an earlier statement, HRW’s Barr said the Taliban rollback of the rights of women and girls began immediately after they took power on August 15, 2021.

According to UNAMA, at least 59 per cent of the population currently requires humanitarian aid, an increase of 6 million people since the beginning of 2021. (ANI)
