Afghanistan has been in an economic crisis since the Taliban took power in August last year following the withdrawal of foreign troops.
Due to restrictions on Afghanistan’s banking sector, the new administration is having difficulty paying salaries to a number of government departments, including teachers.
According to diplomats, the international community is considering negotiating with the Taliban government without formal recognition.
However, the international community, while talking to the Taliban, has made girls’ education an important demand.
The Taliban, on the other hand, are vague about their plans for girls’ education, and in many provinces girls are still unable to attend school.
