Haq said that there are very difficult years ahead for the Afghan people. The UN has 3,300 Afghan personnel, of whom about 400 are women. While around 600 international workers in the country are not affected by the ban.

Haque said aid work continues in areas such as health and education where the UN has been able to secure some limited relaxation of restrictions on Afghan women.

However, he indicated that some UN agencies may take a different approach. “I believe that different agencies have different mandates regarding the provision of assistance and therefore they have different ways of handling the situation,” Haq said.
