US welcomes Taliban’s decree on women’s rights

KABUL: Reacting to the Taliban government’s decree on women’s rights which said women should not be considered “property” and must consent to marriage, US Special Representative for Afghanistan Thomas West Saturday said that Washington welcomed the decree reinforcing a woman’s right to determine if and whom she marries.

“A woman is not a property, but a noble and free human being; no one can give her to anyone in exchange for peace or to end animosity,” read the decree issued a day earlier.

Taking to Twitter, Thomas West, besides lauding the Taliban’s action about women’s rights, urged Kabul to do more in this regard.
