EU to start talks on security, migration amid Afghanistan turmoil

– The European Union will kick off discussions this week on what consequences recent developments in Afghanistan may have for security and migration in the 27-nation bloc, a spokesman for the Slovenian EU presidency said on Monday.

Experts will start looking into the possible effects on migration, assistance to key neighbouring countries as well as security-related issues on Tuesday, he told Reuters, followed by a meeting of EU ambassadors on Thursday.

The Slovenian EU presidency aims to convene an extraordinary meeting of home affairs ministers shortly to discuss the situation, Interior Minister Ales Hojs said last week after the Taliban seized Afghanistan’s capital Kabul.

Slovenia currently holds the EU’s rotating presidency, meaning the country chairs meetings of ministers from EU states.
