The Geneva Call summit on Afghanistan ended after a week of closed-door consultations in Switzerland.
Latifullah Hakimi, head of the delegation of the Islamic Emirate for the Switzerland summit (Geneva Call Summit) said that the delegation had separate meetings with representatives from Switzerland, Germany, Britain, the EU and a number of international organizations on how to respond to the humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan.
“The focus was that this aid should be moved away from politics and should be given to those in need on time. Also, the amount that was before should be increased, not reduced or stopped,” Hakimi said.
Meanwhile, Kabul considers this summit a great success in attracting global aid to Afghanistan.
“The trip was good, and its achievement was that they are ready to continue working with the Afghan health sector, as well as on humanitarian and economic issues,” said Bilal Karimi, deputy spokesman of the Islamic Emirate.
A ten-member delegation from Afghanistan attended the Geneva Summit.
“In general, the focus was on two sections, first, humanitarian aid, and health in general. The organization is working with Afghanistan on humanitarian aid,” said Rohullah Hotak, political analyst.
The Swiss foundation Geneva Call hosted the meetings in Geneva from February 7-11, which were aimed at enhancing unimpeded delivery of humanitarian assistance to the civilian population.
