Kabul Calls Statement of 12 European Foreign Ministers ‘Baseless’

The Islamic Emirate denied the claims of 12 European countries foreign ministers’ joint statement about the violation of human rights in Afghanistan.

Zabiullah Mujahid, the spokesman for the Islamic Emirate, said that countries are trying to convey an unpleasant picture of Afghanistan.

“Countries that failed in Afghanistan and left the country, they are now trying to provide untrue information to the region through their intelligence. The countries express such baseless remarks without considering the ground facts in Afghanistan,” said Zabiullah Mujahid, the spokesperson for the Islamic Emirate.

At the Munich Security Conference (MSC) 2024, the foreign ministers expressed concern about the violation of human rights, especially women’s rights, in Afghanistan, saying that the situation has has no improvement since last year's meeting of the MSC.

In the joint statement, the 12 countries asked the Islamic Emirate to allow Afghan girls to seek education with international standards.

“The international community must continue to focus its attention on the human rights of women and girls in Afghanistan. It must reinforce its efforts to use the legal instruments at its disposal in their support, to end violations of international law including the provisions of international conventions to which Afghanistan is a party,” reads the statement.

In the statement, the countries called the counternarcotics and counterterrorism a challenge not only for Afghanistan but the region. 

“We recognize the need to address multiple challenges involving the State of Afghanistan and the wider region, e.g. the fight against terrorism and drug trafficking. We underline the international community’s joint understanding that the adherence to Afghanistan’s international obligations by the de facto authorities, especially pertaining to human rights, remains one of the central pre-requisites for the reintegration of the State of Afghanistan into the international system,” reads the statement.

“The Islamic Emirate says that cultivation of drugs has decreased by 95 percent and the human rights has had its problems. There should be an agreement on these issues not expressing concerns and damaging the mentality of people,” said Sayed Qaribullah Sadat, a political analyst.

“There are problems, but solutions also exist for the problems. The world should not just concentrate on their concerns about terrorism,” said Akhtar Muhammad Rasikh, an international relations expert.

The international community has made the recognition of the Islamic Emirate conditional on the protection of human and women’s rights in Afghanistan, but the caretaker Afghan government says that the world should define women’s rights considering the cultural diversity of countries.
