Italian PM Announces Plans for G20 Summit on Afghanistan

Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi on Wednesday (29/9) announced an extraordinary G20 meeting on Afghanistan, to be held on 12 October.

Draghi said the meeting would discuss the humanitarian crisis that has continued to worsen in the country since its takeover by the Taliban last August 15.

The meeting will also discuss efforts to prevent the country from becoming a “hotbed of international terrorism.”

In addition to the G20 members, the United Nations, the World Bank, along with Qatar, the Netherlands and Spain will also participate.

Since the Taliban took control of Kabul in mid-August and took control of the entire country, Afghans and the world have seen a return to the harsh rules imposed by the Taliban in the late 1990s. [em/jm]
