Afghanistan: Taliban must allow evacuees after 31 August - Boris Johnson

European fury at Biden: Humiliated Boris Johnson pleads with Taliban to continue to let people out of Afghanistan AFTER August 31 and announces a ‘roadmap’ for dealing with new Islamist government – amid anger from France and Germany

The Daily Mail says: Boris Johnson today pleaded with the Taliban to allow people to leave Afghanistan after the US has completed its withdrawal on August 31.

Mr Johnson, Emmanuel Macron and Angela Merkel used a G7 summit to urge Joe Biden to extend the deadline to provide more time for airlifts from Kabul airport to take place.

But the entreaties appear to have fallen on deaf ears with the Mr Biden expected to stick to his exit date for US forces.

A humiliated Mr Johnson said after the summit that the UK will continue to conduct airlifts from the country ‘right up until the last moment’ as he called on the Taliban to guarantee ‘safe passage’ for anyone who wants to leave after August 31.
