According to the British news agency Reuters, the President of the European Commission Arsala van der Lane said on Saturday that.
“the European Union has not recognized the Taliban in Afghanistan and is not holding political talks with them.”
The statement from the European Union came a week after the Taliban took control of Kabul.
The Taliban entered Kabul on Sunday (August 15th) without any resistance after seizing other country districts.
Addressing a reception on the safe arrival of Afghan officials working for European agencies in Afghanistan in Spain, President Arsala Lane said: Will be done.
“The European Union has allocated 67 million in humanitarian aid to Afghanistan this year, which it will propose to increase,” he said.
The President of the European Commission stated that
“the assistance allocated to Afghanistan is conditional on the observance of human rights in the country, the treatment of minorities and respect for the rights of women and girls.”
“The European Commission is ready to provide financial assistance to European countries that help resettle refugees,” he said.
President Arsala said she would also raise the issue of refugee resettlement at next week’s G7 summit.
It should be noted that in 2015, more than one million people migrated to EU member states. The majority were from Syria, Afghanistan, and Iraq, but the EU reduced asylum seekers in member states following an agreement with Turkey.
Under the agreement, Turkey grants asylum to refugees whose care is funded by the European Union.
