Liz Truss – 2022 Comments on Afghanistan Humanitarian Crisis Conference

The comments made by Liz Truss, the Foreign Secretary, on 15 February 2022.

The conference is a critical moment for the international community to step up support in an effort to stop the growing humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan. The scale of need is unparalleled, and consequences of inaction will be devastating.

The UK is determined to lead the global effort. We will bring international allies together to raise vital aid to deliver food, shelter and health services, protect women and girls and support stability in the region.
