AT News KABUL: The European Union has warned to stop donations to Afghanistan if Ghani’s administration was not serious in battling with corruption. The EU representative in Afghanistan wrote Monday on Twitter that Kabul was not doing enough in counter-corruption as the country was listed as the most corrupt states. The Transparency International’s report on the Corruption Perceptions Index in 2019 shows that Afghanistan still ranks as the world’s most corrupt countries, the EU office said.
