London — UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson said he had convened a virtual G7 summit on Tuesday to discuss the crisis in Afghanistan and urge the government to find a way to prevent the situation from getting worse.
Taliban terrorists seized control of Kabul last weekend in a turmoil that fled civilians and Afghan military allies for security. Many are afraid to return to the strict interpretation of Islamic law imposed during the previous Taliban rule, which ended 20 years ago.
Western governments are discussing how to deal with the situation in Kabul, where thousands of civilians desperate to flee have landed at the airport.
“It is imperative that the international community work together to ensure safe evacuation, prevent humanitarian crises and help Afghan people secure profits for the last two decades,” Johnson said on Twitter on Sunday. Said.
The United Kingdom holds G7 shift leadership, including the United States, Italy, France, Germany, Japan and Canada.
U.S. President Joe Biden, accused at home and abroad of handling the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan, effectively meets with G7 leaders to coordinate policies and discuss evacuation efforts and humanitarian aid. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said on Sunday.
The meeting will be built this week on Biden’s call with Johnson, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Emmanuel Macron and Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi.
Biden will make a statement about Afghanistan at the White House on Sunday. Washington said on Sunday that it would use commercial aircraft to help transport people already evacuated from Afghanistan.
Biden told reporters Friday that he and Secretary of State Antony Blinken would set “strict conditions” for cooperation or approval with the Taliban based on the treatment of women and girls and overall human rights records. Said to cooperate with other countries.
