The Taliban's decision to exclude women from education is disgusting. On the occasion of this decision, the Minister of Education Niki Kerameos sent a written request to the chair of the Council of Ministers of Education of the EU, her Slovenian counterpart, Dr. Simona Kustec, requesting to discuss among the Ministers of Education of the EU member states ways to react to this decision of the Taliban.

"We believe it's our duty to use our available tools within the EU to put pressure on the Taliban to exclude girls from education and to highlight its absurdity," she said in a letter.

Ms. Kerameos also discussed this issue via teleconference with the Deputy Director-General of UNESCO for Education, Stefania Giannini, as well as the initiatives of the International Organization regarding this dramatic development.

Everyone's access to quality education is a self-evident requirement for the European Union and our country and a non-negotiable goal of the United Nations. The Greek Government is actively contributing to the international defense of fundamental human rights and their universal force.
