For the normalization of the relations between Brussels and Kabul, the regional mechanism defined its line of action in September.
These guidelines include guarantees of save departure for all foreigners and nationals who want to leave the country, as well as respect for human rights, particularly those of women, girls and persons belonging to minorities.
