Afghan Voice Agency(AVA)_Monitoring, “Our solidarity with the people in Afghanistan is unbroken. We will not let go of standing up for their human rights,” the German Foreign Office said in a post on X.

“Today, Baerbock spoke with UN Special Rapporteur Richard Bennett about the current situation in Afghanistan and support for the Afghan people.”
At this meeting, the UN special rapporteur also welcomed Germany’s commitment to support human rights in Afghanistan.

“Welcoming Germany’s ongoing support for Afghans, it was a pleasure to meet with Foreign Minister Baerbock to discuss critical human rights issues in Afghanistan, including its feminist foreign policy, while stressing the need for accountability for human rights violations,” said Bennett.

Meanwhile, an Afghan political analyst Mohammad Isa Ishaqzai said regarding such meetings, “The personalities, structures, and organizations that really defend freedom, national interests, and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights should be supported in order to facilitate mutual understanding on the way to freedom, justice, progress, and the realization of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in our country.”

In the meantime, Germany had a military presence in Afghanistan for 20 years, and its embassy and consulate were active in Kabul and Mazar-e-Sharif city in Balkh. With the withdrawal of American forces from Afghanistan, German forces also left the country as part of the international coalition forces.

After the political developments in Afghanistan, Germany relocated many Afghans to that country following the evacuation process.
