The United Nations

The United Nations (UN) on Monday revoked journey privileges of two Taliban officers in response to the restrictions imposed on feminine college students in Afghanistan.

Travel exemptions allowing 15 Taliban officers to go overseas for negotiations have been set to run out on Monday. However, the India-led UN sanctions panel granted the waiver to solely 13 Taliban members, thus banning Said Ahmad Shaidkhel, the performing deputy training minister, and Abdul Baqi Basir Awal Shah, the performing minister of upper training from travelling.

This means the 2 officers will be unable to journey outdoors of Afghanistan.

The UNSC or the Taliban authorities in Afghanistan are but to offer an official response on the matter.
