Talking Points

What our focus should be on
  • What we are witnessing in Afghanistan is a tragedy that should have been foreseen and averted

  • The International community must act decisively to avert further tragedy

  • Foreign governments must take every necessary measure to ensure the safe passage out of Afghanistan for all those at risk of being targeted by the Taliban (Afghans and non-Afghans)

  • This includes:

    • expedited visas delivery support for evacuations from Kabul airport

    • providing relocation and resettlement

    • suspending all deportations and forced returns

  • We urge the US to provide continued security at the airport while evacuations are ongoing

  • We urge the UN to urgently negotiate delivery of humanitarian aid to civilians in need (food, water, housing, basic necessities many have no access to)

  • We urge the UN Security Council to also adopt an emergency resolution calling on the Taliban to respect international human rights law, protect civilians and end reprisal attacks
