In the meeting, Deputy PM Hanafi lauded assistance of the World Food Organization to the destitute and needy people of Afghanistan and asked for further assistance. He added with the takeover of the country by the Islamic Emirate, countrywide security has been ensured and there is no war or insecurity anywhere in Afghanistan. “The Islamic Emirate announced a general amnesty, banned the use and trafficking of drugs, treated drug addicts and collected beggars from different parts of the country, despite that, the aid of the international community especially the United Nations is not enough and it should be increased.” The statement quoted Hanafi as saying. Administrative corruption and bureaucracy rooted out in government organs, he further said. Deputy PM Hanafi added, “Sanctions are not the solution and even impact negatively on humanitarian activities, therefore the international community should take the path of interaction and dialogue with the Islamic Emirate.” “The international community should not ignore that Afghanistan has suffered decades of war and the recent droughts and should support the removal of obstacles and the implementation of development projects, which creates employment opportunities, and prevent the migration of youths abroad,” the statement quoted him as saying. Carl Skau said that WFP has been operating in Afghanistan for 60 years in various sectors, including food security, nutrition, humanitarian and development aid, and our goal is to attract more international aid to the people of Afghanistan. He said that corruption was a major problem in the past, which fortunately has been eliminated, drugs have decreased and security has been ensured throughout Afghanistan. “The people of Afghanistan have really suffered due to wars and climate change, so we are trying to get more humanitarian aid to the poor people of Afghanistan,” the statement quoted Carl as saying.
