Karen Dicker, Chargé d’affaires of the US Embassy in Afghanistan, says that the U.S. supports programs that guarantee human rights, especially women’s and girls’ rights.

On Saturday, September 24, she tweeted: “The leadership of the American mission in Afghanistan is an honor. I am ready to talk to representatives and citizens of Afghanistan and look forward to honest and open communication.”

According to her, the United States will continue to support the Afghan people, celebrate the diverse culture of Afghanistan, advance the interests of the United States, and promote international norms in coordination with its allies, partners, and international stakeholders.

She added: “I admire Qatar’s unwavering support for the people of Afghanistan, often in challenging circumstances.”

The chargé d’affaires of the American embassy added: “Beyond basic needs, we support programs that guarantee human rights, especially the rights of women and girls.”

Decker has noted that the United States is the largest donor of humanitarian aid to Afghanistan, which has provided more than 1.1 billion dollars since August of last year.

Karen Dicker was appointed as the new charge d’affaires of the US Embassy for Afghanistan on July 31 of this year.

She emphasized the continued support of the American government at a time; while, yesterday the White House announced the removal of Afghanistan from the list of US allies in a memo to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of this country.
