The European Union is making available 300 million euros in humanitarian assistance for Afghanistan, President of the EU Commission Ursula von der Leyen said Wednesday.

The EU Commission’s president said “we stand by” the people of Afghanistan, as she noted that a day earlier EU had transported critical aid to Afghanistan, and “more will come”.

The European commissioner for crisis management on Wednesday said that a plane carrying 32 tonnes of relief aid provided by the UN children’s and health agencies landed in Afghanistan.—Web Desk
