I think there's general sense that these comments come rather late in the process.
This is a problem which has to do with the absence of international staff inside Afghanistan, lack of communication. All these factors combined make the situation inside Afghanistan ... rather difficult.
I felt there was a very constructive discussion.
As we meet today, Afghanistan is the site of the world's worst humanitarian crisis. Hunger and displacement in Afghanistan are worse than anywhere else in the world.
I believe the situation is getting very, very serious. Winter is coming very soon, and the international humanitarian community needs to act very quickly.
If they are to meet Thursday in Berlin, one would expect as the most likely ...that there will be no agreement before that. It's not easy.
