G20: EU vows $1.2B in Afghanistan aid, ties more funding to Taliban actions

TRT World says G20 leaders have gathered for a virtual summit focused on addressing the looming humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan, with the EU kicking off proceedings by announcing a $1.2-billion (one-billion-euro) aid package.

US President Joe Biden, Turkey’s Recep Tayyip Erdogan and India’s Narendra Modi were among those who joined the Italy-hosted talks, although Chinese President X Jinping and Russian President Vladimir Putin sent representatives.

Shortly before the meeting began, European Commission chief Ursula von der Leyen announced an aid package to help “avert a major humanitarian and socio-economic collapse” in Afghanistan.
