Foreign Affairs Ministry Note – Guaranteeing safe passage, adopting a multilateral strategy

Thanks to the extraordinary joint efforts of the Foreign Affairs and Defence Ministries, and the Intelligence Department, Italy has completed evacuation operations by air transport of over 5,000 Afghan citizens, including those who have collaborated with Italy, in various capacities, over the years. This means that Italy tops the list of EU countries in terms of the number of people evacuated from Afghanistan.

The second phase will now begin, when possible solutions have to be looked at for providing safe passage for those Afghans who wish to leave the Country after 31 August. For this to be possible, a strategy shall be adopted at a multilateral level, involving all the main international players, beginning with the countries that share borders with Afghanistan.
