We don’t forget Afghanistan: NATO Chief

KABUL (Pajhwok) NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg says, the allies don’t forget Afghanistan and the education is a fundamental human right for all.

Stoltenberg was talking to media after the extraordinary Summit of NATO Heads of State and Government in Brussels on Thursday.

In respond to a question he said : “I think it is very important that we don’t forget Afghanistan. And it is especially important that we don’t forget that education is a fundamental human right. And of course that also applies for girls, for women.

It was one of the biggest achievements over the last 20 years that millions of Afghan girls were able to attend school and to get education. He added.

He stated, any attempt to deny girls in Afghanistan education will be a violation of what the Taliban has promised. And we have to hold them accountable for what they promised and their commitments, including on the right for education to women.

“Therefore I agree with the disappointment expressed by the United Nations and I also strongly believe that we must continue to support all Afghans who are working to uphold the right for human rights, for the freedom of speech, but including also the right for education for women.” Secretary General added.
