Mr. Schaerer noted that ICRC is providing humanitarian and medical assistance for detainees on both sides the conflict and are able to operate in Northern provinces of Afghanistan but unfortunately ICRC reduced their activities in eastern provinces of Afghanistan due to security treats to their employees.
Mr. Karzai extended gratitude to Mr. Schaerer for the work ICRC had undertaken in difficult circumstances. Both sides discussed problems and challenges that detainees face in detention centers, including access to health facilities. They also discussed the security situation throughout the country.
Finally, Mr. Karzai suggested a follow up meeting between CAPS with ICRC to further coordinate and identify areas of mutual collaboration.
