"The EU recognises the vital role the forestry sector plays in Malawi. Forests are of course necessary for the provision of daily energy needs, to almost all households in Malawi.

I strongly condemn the attacks on aid workers of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) working in North-eastern Afghanistan who were shot and killed today while delivering humanitarian aid.

Right now my thoughts are with the families, friends and colleagues of those who have lost loved ones and the two other ICRC colleagues who remain missing.
