According to EU President von der Leyen, the money package is an emergency aid package. The money for development aid has now been cut off now that the Taliban is in power. But one compensates for the other, shall we say.
Not to mention that the European Union previously sent a support package of 200 million euros. In total, Afghanistan should receive one billion euros (worldwide).
“We must do everything we can to avert the serious danger of a major famine and humanitarian disaster,” said European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen in her annual 'throne speech'.
The United Nations also encourages the European Union to continue sending money. Especially now that winter is approaching, the country could use some extras.
