The Dutch Prime Minister came to Paris to meet the Prime Minister and the French President. Ahead of the evening meeting with President Emmanuel Macron, the Dutch prime minister said that Afghan citizens who have nothing to do with the Netherlands “cannot count on being welcomed in the Netherlands”.
“The last thing we want is a repeat of the Syrian refugee crisis in 2015 and 2016,” Rutte was quoted as saying by the daily De Telegraaf. The prime minister added that European leaders had a great incentive to prevent this from happening.
– This is one of the most important things that we will talk about in the near future – said the Prime Minister of the Netherlands in Paris.
Rutte believes that stabilizing the situation in Afghanistan is necessary to avoid mass exodus. The Prime Minister does not rule out cooperation with the Taliban to enable the evacuation of the Dutch who have not been able to return to the country so far. To this end, the Dutch foreign minister is holding talks with Qatar, Pakistan and Turkey.
