European Commission Chief Ursula von der Leyen vowed, on Wednesday, to boost humanitarian aid to Afghanistan by 100 million euros.

Von der Leyen pledged that the 27-nation bloc stands by the Afghan people.

“We must do everything to avert the real risk that is out there of a major famine and humanitarian disaster,” she said in her annual State of the European Union address. “And we will do our part, we will increase again, humanitarian aid for Afghanistan by 100 million euros.”

On the other hand, the EU chief affirmed that EU will donate 200 million more COVID-19 vaccines to the world, pointing out that deliveries would be made by the middle of 2022 and that they would come on top of the 250 million vaccine doses already committed for donation.

“Our first and most urgent priority is to speed up global vaccination,” the Commission president added in her speech. “With less than 1 percent of global doses administered in low-income countries, the scale of injustice and the level of urgency is obvious.”

Moreover, she called the discrepancy in vaccination between the developed and developing world “one of the great geopolitical issues.”
