UN Holds Emergency Talks On Afghanistan Crisis In Qatar

The United Nations has convened an emergency meeting in Qatar to discuss the humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan.

Representatives from 25 countries and groups, including the US, China, Russia, major European aid donors, and key neighbours such as Pakistan, have been called to the two-day meeting by the UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.

However, the ruling Taliban has been excluded from the meeting.

Ahead of the conference, concerns over the recognition of the administration loomed large.

Afghanistan has been in turmoil, especially the women since the Taliban came into power.

A small group of Afghan women staged a weekend protest in Kabul to oppose any moves to recognize the Taliban administration that returned to power in August 2021.

A coalition of Afghan women's groups has also written an open letter to the Doha meeting to express their outrage over any country considering formal ties with the Taliban, given their poor record on women's rights.
