UN Security Council urges Taliban to allow Afghan girls to go to school – SABC News

The UN Security Council has issued a statement concern for the decision of the Afghan Taliban deny girls access to high school and call for the same to open schools for girls who are late.

“Members of the Security Council chiri reaffirm the right to education for all Afghans, including girls,” the United Nations said in a statement on Sunday.

Last week, the Taliban went back to announcing that high schools would be open for girls, saying they would remain closed until plans were made in accordance with Islamic law to reopen.

The United States abruptly canceled a meeting with the Taliban in Doha set to address economic issues as a result of the decision, U.S. officials said Friday.

The Security Council requested that in addition to the International Atomic Energy Agency’s ongoing inspections in Afghanistan, that it monitor Libya’s compliance with “the steps required by the IAEA Board”.
