'We have misjudged the situation' Angela Merkel on Afghanistan | DW News



German Chancellor Angela Merkel spoke on Monday about the quickly deteriorating situation in Afghanistan after the Taliban seized control.

“This is an extremely bitter development. Bitter, dramatic and terrifying,” said the chancellor.

“It is a terrible development for the millions of Afghans who want a more liberal society,” she said.

She paid tribute to the 59 German soldiers who lost their lives in Afghanistan, as well as those who were injured in action.

“I am thinking of the pain of families of soldiers who lost their lives fighting there. Now everything seems so hopeless.”

Merkel said the mission had not been as successful as had been hoped.

The chancellor also told reporters that efforts would be made to offer support and refuge, particularly for Afghan support staff who helped the German military. She said the chaotic conditions in Kabul were making the operation “extremely difficult.”

Merkel said aid would also be given to neighboring countries such as Pakistan, where it is expected many refugees are likely to arrive.

  1. The Self Proclaimed Exceptional cannot be trusted, whatever they touch is turned to Chaos.
    Joining the Self Proclaimed Exceptional in their wars of choice will only bring discredit and defeat.
    The Sooner Europeans detach from the Self Proclaimed Exceptional and mind their own business and interest the better!

  2. I need to feed roaches in my house! We don't have enough. It's so neat we have 70,000 flees now. It's hard to feed them cause I want 40 million flees. See I'm a slave owner and these are my religious gullible slaves.
