EU Offers No New Pledges to Take in Afghan Refugees

European Union members have not made any new promises to accept Afghan refugees almost two months following the Fall of Kabul To the Taliban. Despite promising to allow at-risk groups (especially women) to flee the country, European Union has yet to make any further pledges.

At a resettlement forum in Brussels on Thursday, the United Nations called on EU member states to resettle 42,500 Afghans over the next five years, a figure that EU officials called doable but wouldn’t commit to.
