European Union has devised a special plan to assist Afghan refugees

KABUL: The European Union is putting together a special plan to help Afghan refugees. The EU plan is part of a precautionary measure to avoid a repeat of the 2015 refugee crisis caused by the Syrian war. More than a million migrants have fled Syria to the European Union. The bloc believes that a similar situation exists now.

The decision was made to implement a €300 million project to rehabilitate refugees. The Taliban have reached an agreement with Afghan leaders in this regard. The EU plans to rehabilitate about 30,000 refugees.

To address the immigration crisis following the withdrawal of US troops, the aim is to resettle refugees inside the block, including those from Afghanistan. The European Commission has issued a directive in this regard at the August 26 meeting of European ambassadors. The Commission added that more funds would be made available.

Meanwhile, the Taliban and other Afghan leaders have reached a “consensus” on the formation of a new government and cabinet led by the group’s top spiritual leader. An announcement in this regard is likely in a few days, an official said. Taliban supreme commander Haibatullah Akhundzada will be the top leader of any governing council, according to Bilal Karimi, a member of the group’s cultural commission.
