Wednesday, August 18, 2021

In the framework of the Regional Conference on Women in Latin America and the Caribbean, Chile, in its capacity as President of that instance, promoted a statement from its board of directors "on the urgent protection of the human rights of women and girls in Afghanistan" (it can be reviewed at the end of the note). This declaration has the support of Argentina, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Ecuador, Spain, Guatemala, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru, Puerto Rico, and Uruguay.

Likewise, our country adhered to the declaration signed by the European Union joined by 20 countries through which they convey their "deep concern" about the situation of women and girls in Afghanistan and call on those who occupy positions of power and authority to guarantee their protection.
