Another dreadful attack on civilians in crowded #Hazara market W. #Kabul, continuing pattern of crimes claimed by ISIS. My sincere condolences to victims🙏 #Taliban df authorities are responsible for protecting all #Afghans. Perpetrators of Int crimes must be brought to justice.

#Afghanistan Consistent message of almost all women in Afg :”Let us get on with our lives.”, in business, education, private or public sector. Restrictive views of a tiny minority imposed with a negative impact on Afg nation. @UNAMAnews @EUinAfghanistan
In every province I travelled, Afghan women told me they will not give up. They will not accept their systematic exclusion from public life, and restrictions on their right to learn, to work, and to have a voice. Press briefing: bit.ly/3OyMlMO

The EU deplores the #KabulStadiumBlast. We call on the Taliban to protect the 🇦🇫 people & prevent 🇦🇫 from becoming a safe haven for terrorists. Only an inclusive & participatory policy will bring peace to the country. Our thoughts are with the victims of this attack & families.

Poverty, conflict and climate change continue to force Afghans to make hard choices. 🇪🇺 remains committed to offering children and vulnerable families better opportunities. This is why we work with @UNICEFAfg to give Ihsan and other like him access to economic opportunities.
“My legs numbed, and I could not walk,” says Ihsan, recalling a horrible road journey, trying to leave home in search of a better life. Today, with thanks to @EUinAfghanistan, we are able to support Ihsan & others like him through 👇uni.cf/3PfoN02

#Afghanistan is 1 of 2 remaining polio endemic countries in the world. Polio is often transmitted when children move across borders. We recently committed + €25 million to vaccinate 10M children in #Afghanistan against polio. unicef.org/afghanistan/press…

Crossing borders is dangerous for children, especially when they're alone. We committed €15 million for child protection programmes in #Afghanistan, so @UNICEF can support 18,000 migrant children to return safely to their communities and families.

Heard of casings? To help to resume exports, 🇪🇺 #EU supports the sector to renew animal and public health standards. This would lead to the creation of 140 jobs, including for 50 ♀️, in a company in Kabul we visited. There are 5 more casings companies in Afghanistan #jobcreation

Terrible and very sad news of terrorist violence against a Sikh Gurdwara in #Kabul with several reported victims. Religious (and ethnic) pluralism needs to be protected with full force.
Replying to @bsarwary
“Some of the shops inside the Gurdwara caught fire, at least two explosions took place inside.” A senior aid to Taliban interior ministry tells me. Footage - social media.

The step between likening people to animals and starting treating them the same way is often short. And neither of these actions seems characteristic of a respectable, legitimate or recognisable ‘government’ that cares about the citizens or about its own reputation in the world.
