The Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation in the UAE, Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, made a phone call to his Turkish counterpart yesterday.
Recent developments, including Taliban’s recent ban on women’s education and appointment to roles in non-governmental and humanitarian organisations, as well as the storming of Al Aqsa Mosque by an Israeli minister, were discussed in the call with Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Türkiye.
Sheikh Abdullah emphasised that this ban, along with earlier ones, violate fundamental human rights. He said that Islam devotes significant attention to women, grants them a privileged position, and safeguards their rights.
He affirmed the need to guarantee women’s rights, as well as the importance of full and equal participation of women and girls in all aspects of life.
