The Taliban administration is predominantly Pashtun: UK Representative to the UN

Mr. Manley emphasized that they are worried about women and girls’ rights in Afghanistan, because their ability to work, to move freely and to access education has been severely restricted. 

“We welcome the return of some women to university, and the Taliban’s recent commitment that all girls can return to schools in March. But the world will be watching. We will judge the Taliban by their actions, not their words,” Mr. Manley said.

Mr. Manley added that without the participation of women and Taliban’s narrow approach to governance risk instability. He emphasized that the Taliban administration is predominantly Pashtun. Civil society and women’s voices are supressed, and members of some minority groups have been subject to arrest, persecution and forced displacement.

“There are allegations of extra-judicial killings, detentions and disappearances of former security forces and government officials. We call on the Taliban to honour the amnesty it announced last August for all Afghans and to carry out transparent investigations into allegations of targeted killings and disappearances,” UK Permanent Representative to the UN said.

The UK Permanent Representative to the UN while made the comments about the Taliban government that the combination of their cabinet and their governors are mostly Pashtun. But Taliban claim their government is an inclusive one.
