G7 calls on Taliban to stop restricting women’s rights

WorldG7 calls on Taliban to stop restricting women's rights

Paris (The Times Groupe)- The Group of Seven (G7) foreign ministers said on Thursday that the Taliban’s increasing restrictions on women and girls’ rights in Afghanistan are isolating the country.

“These measures further isolate the Taliban from the international community,” said the G7 foreign ministers and European Union foreign policy chief.

French officials urged the Taliban to take immediate action to lift restrictions on women and girls, and to respect their human rights, in a joint statement.

In another step toward their past hardline rule, the Taliban, who swept back to power after the Afghan government collapsed last year, ordered women to cover their faces in public on Saturday.
