THE INTERVIEW © FRANCE 24

Dr. Habiba Sarabi is one of four women who took part in the negotiations with the Taliban in Doha at the end of 2020. She is also the first woman to have ruled an Afghan province, that of Bamiyan. Sarabi, who was in Doha when the Taliban took power, spoke to us from the Turkish city of Izmir, where she now lives. She called the withdrawal of US and NATO troops from Afghanistan “a big mistake”, branding the US pullout “irresponsible”.

Habiba Sarabi said it is now incumbent upon the international community to “correct” its mistake. She urged it to “put leverage” on the Taliban so that they respect basic human rights, including women’s rights.
