Women`s rights will not be sacrificed: Karzai
Kabul: Afghanistan`s president has assured
the country`s women that their rights will not be sacrificed
in any peace deal with the Taliban.
President Hamid Karzai says in an interview aired Sunday
on ABC News` "This Week with Christiane Amanpour" that he is
reaching out to Taliban members willing to break with al Qaeda
and other terrorist groups.
But he says Afghan women will have "solid and meaningful"
representation in any formal talks so their political, social
and economic gains will not only be protected but expanded.
Karzai says he is also committed to combating corruption
which is undermining support for his US-backed government.
