Following the Taliban takeover on 15 August, a new reality exists in Afghanistan, a reality that affects the EU, affects the region, international stability and has a direct impact on European security.
The future of Afghanistan remains a key issue for the EU. The EU remains firmly committed to supporting the Afghan people; we will continue to provide needs-based assistance to them, as well as providing support to Afghans at risk.
Within the EU and together with our partners, our work will also focus on, among other issues, the management of population flows from Afghanistan; the prevention of the spread of terrorism; the fight against organised crime, including drug trafficking and human trafficking.
