EU calls for Afghan ceasefire, warns against Islamic emirate

Reading Time: < 1 minute

The European Union (EU) foreign policy chief called on Tuesday for an immediate ceasefire in Afghanistan and said that any move to set up an Islamic emirate would affect the bloc’s support. 

Josep Borrell, EU High Representative, told an Afghanistan fund-raising conference in Geneva: “A ceasefire should not be an outcome of the (peace) processs, it should accompany the process from today…Any attempt to restore an Islamic emirate would have an impact on our political and financial engagement.”
