France and Qatar will continue their close cooperation to help improve humanitarian conditions and stability in Afghanistan through support exclusively for civil society and international organizations, the statement added.
The humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan has deteriorated ever since the Taliban took control of Kabul in August. The Taliban entered Kabul on August 15, causing the US-backed government to step down. Later in September, the outfit announced the composition of the new interim government of Afghanistan.
The country is currently battered by the deepening economic, humanitarian, and security crisis following the Taliban takeover. The international community, from governments to non-governmental organizations, has been providing various assistance to the Afghan people. (ANI)
