British Charge d’Affaires Meets Taliban, Women’s Rights Activists in Kabul

British Charge d’Affaires to Afghanistan Robert Dickson met with Taliban officials and women’s rights activists in Kabul on Friday.

In a post on his Twitter account, Dickson called his visit to Kabul this week to discuss the next steps in implementing UN Security Council Resolution 2721 a “constructive” one. He added that the resolution provides an opportunity for a better future for the Afghan people.

The British diplomat also expressed his pleasure at meeting with women’s rights activists from civil society. He did not provide any further details about his meetings in Kabul.

The Taliban government said that Mullah Abdul Kabir, political deputy to the prime minister, met with the British charge d’affaires and expressed his desire for positive engagement with the world, especially with Britain.


Dickson’s visit to Kabul is a sign that the British government is committed to engaging with the Taliban government. The meeting with Taliban officials is likely to focus on the implementation of UN Security Council Resolution 2721, which calls on the Taliban to respect human rights and international law.

The meeting with women’s rights activists is also significant. It shows that the British government is concerned about the rights of women and girls in Afghanistan.

The Taliban’s statement of wanting positive engagement with the world is also a positive development. It suggests that the Taliban is open to working with the international community to address the challenges facing Afghanistan.

It remains to be seen how the Taliban will implement UN Security Council Resolution 2721. However, the meeting between Dickson and Taliban officials is a step in the right direction.
