UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has said that he received a letter from the Taliban, in which the outfit committed to protecting UN personnel working in the country and addressing issues related to women's rights.

"We discussed with them humanitarian aid, [having] the possibility of the UN to extend humanitarian aid to the whole territory without discrimination, the protection to the UN by the Taliban and also our concerns with the special rights of women and girls that are particularly important for us," Guterres told Sputnik.

"The discussions have been quite constructive and positive - we received a letter from the Taliban with commitments in relation to these aspects."

Guterres also noted that earlier in September UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator Martin Griffiths travelled to Kabul to meet with the Taliban leadership to address a number of pressing issues. (ANI)
