Due to the Taliban’s oppressive treatment of women and children in Afghanistan, the United States on Tuesday imposed fresh sanctions against them.
The new visa restriction policy for current or former Taliban members and anyone who oppress women through violent means was introduced by Secretary of State Anthony Blinken.
On the UN’s International Day of the Girl Child, Blinken made the statement.
As a sombre illustration, Blinken stated that Afghanistan continues to be the only country in the world where girls are systemically prohibited from continuing their education past the sixth grade.
Numerous students were murdered and injured in a recent suicide explosion in a Kabul classroom while they studied for tests.
