Russia plans to deliver huge humanitarian aid to Afghanistan

AT News

KABUL: Russia is planning to deliver large humanitarian aid and foodstuffs to Afghanistan through special flights in November, Russia’s Ambassador to Afghanistan Dmitry Zhirnov said on Sunday.

“We are preparing special flights to Afghanistan to deliver large humanitarian aid, foodstuffs. On these special flights in November, we will also repatriate Afghan nationals with Russian citizenship,” he said in an interview with Rossiya-1 TV Channel.

Zhirnov said the flights that will follow – and there will be several planes for that purpose – will deliver to Russia Afghan students who enrolled at our universities on special quotas and as part of onsite training. They simply have no money to buy tickets. But the educational process must go on and the Taliban themselves support this.

This is as Moscow format meeting on Afghanistan held on October 20 called for providing urgent humanitarian and economic aid to the country for its recovery. The participants in the Moscow talks also proposed launching a collective initiative to convene a representative international donor conference on Afghanistan under the UN aegis as soon as possible.

The Taliban entered Kabul without encountering any resistance while Afghan President Ashraf Ghani stepped down and fled the country. The Taliban declared on September 6 that they had established control of the entire Afghan territory and on September 7 they announced an interim government in Afghanistan.
