We Support the Presence of Women and the Representation of Women in Peace Negotiations

Chief Executive Dr. Abdullah Abdullah met with Mr. Tadamichi Yamamoto, UN Secretary-General's Special Representative for Afghanistan; British Ambassador to Afghanistan Ms. Alison Blake, Mr Pikakosin ambassador of Finland, and Ms. Caroline Vicini ambassador of the Kingdome of Sweden at Sapedar Palace in Kabul.

At the meeting, UN envoy and ambassadors from ally countries asked the Chief Executive's support for the proper presence and representation of women in international peace talks and meetings. Referring to the inter-Afghan talks hosted by the People's Republic of China, they said the representation of women at the meeting is low and that the presence of women should be increased.

The Chief Executive welcomed their plan and said, "We thank you for your help and efforts to empower women in Afghanistan and we fully support the plan to increase women's participation in international and inter-Afghan peace talks."
