The G20 is a group of 19 countries plus the European Union. It has just met to talk about Afghanistan. Leaders of the G20 promised to help Afghanistan's economy. Since the Taliban took over Afghanistan in August, the economy has almost collapsed. Germany's leader said it was important to help Afghanistan. She said if the country's economy collapsed, no one could give aid to the country. She added: "To look on as 40 million people [slip] into chaos because there's no financial system must not be the goal of the international community."

The G20 leaders will talk to the Taliban about humanitarian aid. Italy's prime minister is the current leader of the G20. He said: "It is very hard to see how you can help people in Afghanistan without...the Taliban." The EU will increase the aid it gives to $1.15 billion. The IMF and World Bank will also provide aid but they did not say how much. The Taliban said: "The international community needs to start cooperating with us." It said the aid would help to stop insecurity in the country. It said it would also help the Taliban to "engage positively with the world".
