After Recognition We Will Address Rights Issues: Mujahid

In reaction to European Union concerns over human rights violations in Afghanistan, Zabihullah Mujahid, deputy minister of the Ministry of Information and Culture of the caretaker cabinet, said on Monday that if the international community recognizes the new government, they will address the concerns over allegations of human rights violations.

“As long as we are not recognized, and they make criticisms (over rights violations), we think it is a one-sided approach. It would be good for them to treat us responsibly and recognize our current government as a responsible administration. Afterward, they can share their concerns lawfully with us and we will address their concerns,” Mujahid told TOLOnews.

Mujahid’s remarks come after the ambassador and head of the EU delegation in Afghanistan, Andreas Von Brandt, on Sunday said the EU is deeply concerned over human rights violations in Afghanistan, especially the violation of women and girls’ right to education and work.

"The substance of my criticism remains: human rights are under threat in Afghanistan, particularly the right to education and right to work,” Brandt tweeted.
