Ex-Afghan president Karzai believes Taliban will allow girls back to school


Six months after the Taliban retook Afghanistan, FRANCE 24 spoke to former Afghan president Hamid Karzai, who chose to stay in the country. He told us he believes the Taliban will allow girls back to school as this is "absolutely necessary for the well-being'" of Afghanistan. Karzai also strongly criticised the Biden administration's recent decision to freeze part of Afghanistan's assets in the US as compensation for victims of the 9/11 attacks, saying the funds "belong to the Afghan people".
