Afghanistan – Athens on alert

In addition to the potential security issues that may arise, Athens has two main reasons to be concerned.

Athens is on alert after the rapid developments in Afghanistan and the Taliban invasion of the capital, Kabul.


In addition to the potential security issues that may arise, Athens has two main reasons to be concerned.


The first reason is immigration – refugees.

Taliban opponents will rush to leave the country, to find safe haven and be saved. And these are hundreds of thousands of citizens and officials, as well as locals who have worked with the Americans and the rest of the international community, taking on many roles, including liaisons, translators, members of anti-corruption and drug trafficking organizations, press freedom and more. And with them thousands of innocent citizens and civilians.


They will ask to move to neighboring countries such as Turkey and will feel safe when moving to Europe.
