What’s At Stake As UN Taliban Travel Ban Waiver Set To Expire?

The Trump-backed waiver allows sanctioned Taliban leaders to travel abroad for negotiations.

A waiver that exempts top Taliban officials from a long-standing United Nations travel ban and related sanctions is set to expire, with rights groups saying the restrictions should be reimposed based on the group’s oppression of women since taking power last year.

The United States has not given an official stance on the current extension, which reportedly is set to be discussed by the UN Security Council (UNSC) next week. It officially expires on Monday.
