FM Muttaqi discuss humanitarian aids with OCHA representative

KABUL: The acting Foreign Minister Mawlavi Amir Khan Muttaqi, in a meeting, with Edem Wosornu, the Director of operation of the United Nations Organization for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), discussed humanitarian issues, the ministry said in a statement the other day. Edem shared her deepest condolences over the recent floods in various parts of the country and assured the organization teams would be dispatched to the affected areas as soon as possible, according to the statement. She also thanked the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for its efforts in establishing a coordination committee between the Islamic Emirate and the United Nations agencies. Muttaqi thanked OCHA for its efforts in attracting and coordinating aid and referring to the recent floods in the country, and said while Afghanistan has no part in the deterioration of the climate, but it is one of the most vulnerable country “I would like to convey this message through you that the more Afghanistan has suffered, the more it needs help and its position should be heard in international climate meetings and it should have access to financial funds related to climate change,” the statement quoted Muttaqi as saying. The recent flood wave is very destructive, and extensive assistance is needed, said Muttaqi, adding the Islamic Emirate has used all its possibilities to address the challenges facing the people, but looking at the extent of the incident, it is necessary that the international and aid organizations also fulfill their responsibility in this regard. Indrika Ratwatte, the resident representative of the United Nations to Afghanistan, said: “We have always conveyed your voice to the international community that Afghanistan has suffered the most and is in the most need, and we have tried and are always trying to provide humanitarian aid and without considering political goals.” The Kabul Times
