Secretary Blinken: Afghanistan’s ‘LGBTQ Community’ Is ‘Something We’re Focused On’

‘Thank you for very rightly putting the spotlight on concerns about the LGBTQ community in Afghanistan’

EXCERPT:

BLINKEN: “Well, thank you for very rightly putting the spotlight on concerns about the LGBTQI+ community in Afghanistan and the particular threat that they find themselves under. This is something that we are focused on. I have not personally seen the report that you refer to. I’m going to ask to see it. I’m pretty sure that my team has, but I’ll take a look at that myself and I thank you for sending it to us."
