ICRC Hopes Taliban Reinstate Security Assurance of Its Staff in Afghanistan

(Last Updated On: May 9, 2019)

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) hopes the Taliban insurgent group reinstate the security assurance of its staff in Afghanistan to provide humanitarian assistance.

Head of the ICRC Delegation in Afghanistan Schaerer Juan-Pedro on Wednesday told Ariana News that the ICRC has discussed its presence in Afghanistan with the representatives of the insurgent group based in Doha, the capital of Qatar.

He added that the two sides have reached to an understanding and hopefully the Taliban will announce their support for their activities in Afghanistan in the coming days.

Last month, Taliban said it has temporarily banned the ICRC and World Health Organization (WHO) from carrying out relief work in the areas it controls in Afghanistan and it has revoked security guarantees for their staff.

The insurgent group said that the ICRC has failed to practically implement pledges given to the Taliban.

ICRC is an international organization that provides humanitarian assistance to those who are in urgent need.
