“We will continue to fulfill this responsibility and have now created a structured framework for future admissions,” Interior Minister Nancy Faeser said in a statement. “Based on established admission criteria, we are able to offer protection to particularly vulnerable people from Afghanistan.”
“We are also working closely with civil society organizations to explore new avenues and forms of cooperation that have never been tried before,” she said. “For example, we now have a coordinating office to support civil society organizations taking part in the program.”
As part of international efforts, Germany has always been helping Afghans even after the Taliban Takeover. Compared to other EU member states, Germany has admitted by far the largest number of Afghan former local employees.
