The European Union preparing to establish Diplomatic Mission in Afghanistan In a few weeks, according to the assessment of the European Commission, which confirmed that the Union is continuing its efforts to establish a minimum presence in Kabul. Committee spokeswoman Nabila Masrali did not reveal the details of the case due to security and said that it might be possible within a few weeks to start a joint diplomatic representation. Masrali stressed that the opening of the representation will not mean the European Union’s recognition of the Taliban.
EU officials have declared that a relationship with the Taliban interim administration is inevitable in some cases such as humanitarian aid to be provided to Afghanistan. France, which is preparing to take over the EU’s rotating presidency on January 1, has offered to establish a joint diplomatic mission in Kabul by EU countries. On his visit to Qatar on December 4, French President Emmanuel Macron said, “We are studying the establishment of an organization and a common place that would allow the presence of our embassies in Kabul with the participation of some European countries.”
European Union officials say they should cooperate with the Afghan administration, but insist they will not recognize the Taliban, which set up an interim government occupying the administration after NATO withdrew from Afghanistan this summer.
