Brussels, 09/09/2021

The EU expresses its concerns following the appointment of an interim government by the Taliban on 7 September. Its composition does not live up to the Taliban’s declared promises on the need for an inclusive government reflecting the political, religious and ethnic diversity in Afghanistan.

An inclusive and representative government is a key element for a stable and peaceful Afghanistan. It is also an essential benchmark for EU engagement.

The EU, therefore, expects such inclusivity and representation in the future composition of the Government.
