Aziz Omar, the Afghan Charge d’affaires in Kazakhstan, on Friday said the situation with human rights in Afghanistan would deteriorate if the Taliban movement remained in power.

Omar said “now the Taliban have appeared on TV, they said that they will respect human rights, women’s rights, they will value diplomatic relations with other states, but in fact, in practice, there is still a danger of killing people every day.’’

The diplomat also said that the Taliban was not just one group but over 20 extremist groups and each one of them had their own programmes, adding “they have a vision not just for Afghanistan but also for the region and the world.

“Not only the rights of women and children, but human rights also will not be respected. How can you kill thousands of people, and then say that we respect the rights of women, kids,” the diplomat said.
