VOA Statement Denouncing Taliban’s Order to Remove VOA’s Programs from TV Broadcasts in Afghanistan

“We ask the Taliban to reconsider this troubling and unfortunate decision,” said Acting VOA Director Yolanda Lόpez. “The content restrictions that the Taliban are attempting to impose are antithetical to freedom of expression that the people of Afghanistan deserve,” said Lόpez, adding that “while we are disappointed and saddened by the Taliban’s orders to our television affiliate partners in the country, our commitment to providing factual information to the people of Afghanistan is one that the Voice of America will continue on television, radio, and the internet on and, as well as on social media.”
