The report also denounced the existence of “credible reports” that suppress the human rights of women and girls and shut down private and public media outlets.

“Progress”

“Afghans have achieved a lot in the last 20 years and want to continue to build on their achievements in development, human rights and freedom of expression,” the statement said. “We want to underline that progress made in recent years can only be sustained if all parties work together.”
