EU says working ‘hard’ to ensure safety of Afghan staff

The European Union says the Taliban’s advance to Kabul has “increased the urgency to provide protection” for its Afghan staff against possible reprisals, and Brussels is trying to ensure their safety.

“The matter is extremely urgent, we take it very seriously and continue to work hard, together with EU Member States, on implementing rapid solutions for them and ensure their safety. We are in intense contact and work closely on this with the Member States to maximize the possibilities for our local staff and their dependents to relocate to a safe location,” an EU spokesman says.
