Journalists already accredited to the EU institutions will have received the link through which to participate via the European Commission.
Journalists not accredited to the EU institutions can register to participate until 12:00 midday CET today by sending an email to COMM-PRESSROOM-TEAM@ec.europa.eu (link sends e-mail) attaching:
National ID card or passport (non EU-citizens must provide a passport).

Or, if you don’t have a valid national press card, a scanned copy of a letter by your editor-in-chief or an official email from your head office confirming that they request access for you for that particular day/event.
Ahead of the Conference, the EU and its Member States, together with the key international donors to Afghanistan, set out the political and governance conditions for future international political and financial support to Afghanistan. These conditions are outlined in the document entitled “Key Elements for Sustained International Support to Peace and Development in Afghanistan”, which is available online.
A factsheet on EU-Afghanistan relations is available online.
