Germany Will Withhold Aid from Afghanistan If the Taliban Implements Sharia Law

Germany’s foreign minister said Thursday that his country will stop giving foreign aid to Afghanistan if the Taliban takes over the country and implements “Sharia Law.”

“We provide 430 million euros [$505 million] every year, we will not give another cent if the Taliban takes over the country and introduces Sharia law,” German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said, according to Reuters.

Maas’ comments suggest Germany could keep giving Afghanistan aid even if a future government is Taliban-controlled, as long as the group doesn’t impose strict laws as it had in the past. The Taliban’s harsh treatment of women is one of the main talking points for hawks who argue the US should continue the war. Even George W. Bush claimed he cared about Afghan women when he spoke out against President Biden’s withdrawal.
