The Republic of Austria and the Republic of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan have a long-standing relationship in many areas and based on mutual respect, at the bilateral level, and within the framework of cooperation between Afghanistan and the European Union.
We particularly appreciate our strong cooperation with the Austrian Federal Ministry of the Interior. It has always acted as a central and always reliable partner, also with regard to migration issues. Our longstanding and very constructive cooperation is characterized by a regular exchange at different levels.
Ambassador Khojesta Fana Ebrahimkhel and Mag. Elisabeth Wenger-Donig had a very fruitful meeting on many issues of common interest, in particular, the topic of cooperation in migration issues and COVID-19 related support for Afghanistan was discussed.
We look forward to strengthening our cooperation with the Government of Austria.
