The European Union (EU) has pledged an additional কোটি 600 million in emergency aid to Afghanistan and its neighbors.
The European Commission said this ahead of the G20 summit on Afghanistan on Tuesday.
With the new fund, the EU’s total pledged aid stood at কোটি 1 billion. Earlier, EU executives pledged 300 million euros in aid to keep basic services in Afghanistan and prevent a food crisis.
“We must do everything we can to prevent a major humanitarian and socio-economic decline in Afghanistan,” European Commission President Ursula von der Lin said in a statement.
However, Von der Lin also said that the Taliban, which captured Kabul on August 15, must first meet five EU conditions in order to receive long-term support.
