‚ÄčThe UK regularly urges the Government of Afghanistan to ensure that the human rights and safety of all minorities, including the Hazara people, are protected. We do so bilaterally and with international partners, including the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan and the EU. Our Embassy in Kabul frequently meets representatives of Hazara communities to listen to their concerns. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office also engages with members of the Hazara diaspora in the UK.
