According to, EU foreign policy official Josep Borrell on Sunday condemned the Taliban’s decision to prevent women from working in local and international non-governmental organizations in Afghanistan.

The statement added that the European Union will assess the impact of the decision on the continuation of aid to the Afghan people. Additionally, three foreign aid organizations announced on Sunday that they would end their work in Afghanistan.

We will continue to ask Afghanistan to provide life-saving aid to men and women alike. On Saturday, the Taliban issued orders to non-governmental organizations in Afghanistan to stop employing women, but the Taliban did not specify its directive regarding foreign female workers. The Afghan Taliban justified the decision not to enforce an appropriate dress code for female employees, including the hijab, and threatened to suspend the licenses of organizations that did not implement the decision. The Taliban’s move was condemned by the international community and the decision was feared to have a negative impact on aid delivery.
