EU calls on American friends to help secure the airport to complete evacuations

the eu and its member states spare no effort to evacuate eu citizens and those who have partnered trustfully with us and we are concerned about the ability to safely reach the kabul airport we call on the new afghan authorities to allow free passage to all foreign and afghan citizens who wish to get to the airport we have also raised this issue with our american friends and partners on two particular aspects first the need to secure the airport as long as necessary to complete the operations and second a fair and equitable access to the airport for all nationals entitled to evacuation we need to help mostly those who are at immediate risk and those are women girls and children who make up the vast majority of internally displaced people 80 percent of the internally spaced people in afghanistan are women and girls and up to now the number runs up to around 3.7 million internally displaced people in afghanistan i announced that the commission will propose to almost quadruple the humanitarian aid coming from the eu budget we had planned initially for more than 50 million for the year 2021 we will now increase it to over 200 million euros for the year 2021 and this will help meet the urgent needs of afghans both in afghanistan but also of course in the neighboring host countries
