The German Foreign Ministry will provide for a program of 10 million euros ($11.7 million) to support people in Afghanistan. On Wednesday, this statement was released by Foreign Minister Heiko Maas.
Maas said that they are looking into the period of the evacuation and he spoke about it with the representative of the German Human Rights Organization. He further added that there are many representatives of NGOs, science and culture addressed to them. In recent years they have maintained a close partnership with Afghanistan and would like to continue to support the nation.
For the support, the German government is creating a “support fund” for those who campaigned for human rights, freedom of science, and culture. They focus on expanding the specific protection programs for Afghanistan and have allocated 10 million euros.
Earlier the German Chancellor Angela Merkel has described the Taliban’s Afghanistan takeover as “bitter, dramatic and terrible”. She feels terrible for the millions of Afghans who have worked for the freedom of a society.
Many countries have succeeded in evacuating their diplomats in the Central Asian country following the events after the takeover of Afghanistan by the Taliban.
