Afghanistan – EU: Coordinated action on uncontrolled migration flows and terrorism

The determination of the EU and the Member States to protect the EU’s external borders is underlined by the Ministers of the Interior in the joint statement issued after the Extraordinary Council on Afghanistan. In addition, it is emphasized that the Council will respond to attempts to instrumentalize people for political purposes.

The EU will participate in and strengthen its support for third countries, especially neighboring and transit countries, which host large numbers of migrants and refugees, to strengthen their capacity to provide protection, decent and safe reception, and sustainable living for refugees and host communities.
