Joe Biden

According to Afghanistan-based TOLO News, US President Joe Biden has stated that Washington stands with women facing violence in Iran and Afghanistan.
Biden made the comments during a White House speech commemorating Women’s History Month. “We stand in solidarity with women facing violence in Iran and Afghanistan… “The budget I proposed two weeks ago includes over three billion dollars, a record amount, to advance general quality globally, not just at home,” he said, according to TOLO News.

This comes as the United States’ Deputy Foreign Minister, Wendy R. Sherman, has also urged Kabul to grant women and girls their basic rights.
