Afghanistan should not become again a safe haven for terrorism, the Italian prime minister said at a virtual G20 meeting on Tuesday.
“All of you made the point that Afghanistan should not become again a safe haven for terrorism. This might destabilize not only Afghanistan, but the whole region, and maybe also the world,” said an official statement, citing Mario Draghi’s remarks.
Underlining the importance of a unified stance on the issue, Draghi said the UN seems to have had a broad mandate to coordinate all the activities to help Afghan citizens.
“The main purpose of this coordination is first and foremost to respond to the humanitarian emergency and we support the United Nations assistance mission in Afghanistan,” he added.
He urged immediate action since there is a “colossal humanitarian crisis”, which is already worsening ahead of winter.
