Two Taliban officials were banned from traveling following the closure of girls’ schools

The closure of girls’ schools in Afghanistan has become a challenging issue for the Taliban and the international community, and various organizations and institutions have called for a boycott of the Taliban due to the closure of schools.
Following numerous requests to restrict the travel of Taliban officials, the United Nations has revoked the travel exemption of two high-ranking Taliban officials.

According to a recent UN decision, Abdul Baqi Haqqani, acting head of the Taliban Ministry of Higher Education, and Seyed Ahmad Seyed Khel, deputy minister of education, are not allowed to travel abroad.
A diplomat familiar with the decision, speaking on condition of anonymity, told Agence France-Presse (AFP) that the United Nations had taken the decision in response to the Taliban’s restrictions on Afghan citizens, especially women, and the closure of girls’ schools.
According to the diplomat, the travel exemption for 13 Taliban officials has been extended for another two months.

Some countries reportedly wanted the travel exemption for all Taliban leaders lifted.
The United Nations before exempted 15 Taliban officials from traveling outside Afghanistan.
