KABUL, March 23 – RIA Novosti. The Afghan Ministry of Education has announced a decision to postpone the reopening of schools for girls over the sixth grade until further notice.
The ministry said it needed to prepare a “comprehensive plan in line with Sharia, Afghan traditions and culture” before classes resume.
Earlier, the ministry announced that schools in a number of central and northern provinces of Afghanistan would open on March 23.
In early August 2021, the Taliban stepped up their offensive against the Afghan government forces, entered Kabul on August 15, and the next day declared that the war was over. The last two weeks of August, from the Kabul airport, which was under the protection of the US military, there was a mass evacuation of Western citizens and Afghans who collaborated with them. On the night of August 31, the US military left the Kabul airport, ending nearly 20 years of US military presence in Afghanistan. In early September, the composition of the interim government of Afghanistan was announced, which was headed by Mohammad Hassan Akhund, who was in charge of foreign policy during the first rule of the Taliban * and has been under UN sanctions since 2001.
