A former Afghanistan Ambassador to the United States has accused President Joe Biden of “abandoning” women and girls, as the war-torn nation adapts to Taliban rule.
Adela Raz, who is still in Washington despite the Afghan government no longer existing, spoke exclusively with news outlet Axios.
In the interview she said she does not get the sense President Biden cares about the plight of Afghan women, and that America’s standing in the world has declined since he took office.
“He said the US could not be the police of the world to protect women in any other country,” Ms Raz said.
“If you talk about democracy — I probably will question it and laugh at it. You were engaged in building one in Afghanistan, and the people believed in it. They fought for it.”
