Selin ATAY-TDO- The French Minister stated that North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) allies have to contribute to the management of challenges evolving from Afghanistan.
Following a meeting between NATO foreign ministers to discuss the difficult situation in Afghanistan, Jean-Yves Le Drian tweeted on the importance of taking collective action in an effort to manage the possible negative consequences. “Beyond the absolute urgency of evacuations, NATO will have to contribute to the management of the challenges of the Afghan crisis: risk of terrorist resurgence, humanitarian needs, regional stability,” Jean-Yves Le Drian said.
On Thursday, French President Emmanuel Macron highlighted the absolute need to “ensure rapid and concrete coordination among allies on the ground, to allow the evacuation” in the telephone call with Joe Biden.
Macron also followed up on the Afghanistan situation with his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin. They reached the common ground to coordinate “closely bilaterally as well as within the United Nations Security Council, and within the framework of the G20,” according to a statement from Elysee.
