US and UK agree to hold G7 video conference on Afghanistan next week



The Government of the United States and the United Kingdom have agreed this Tuesday to hold a G7 meeting on the crisis in Afghanistan for next week, as reported by the White House.

Finally, the meeting is confirmed after a telephone conversation between the President of the United States, Joe Biden, and the British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, after the Taliban have taken control of the country after a meteoric advance that has culminated ago a few days with the taking of Kabul.

Unlike other international leaders, such as the French president, Emmanuel Macron, and the German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who had already discussed the current situation, or Johnson who was the first to speak of a G7 meeting, Biden he had preferred not to deal with his partners.

The statement released by the White House notes that Biden and Johnson spoke about “the need for close and continuous collaboration between democratic allies and partners” in relation to the political situation in Afghanistan, including “the ways in which the international community can provide humanitarian assistance and support to refugees and other vulnerable Afghans ”.
