  • It is essential that the international community come together and take a unified approach on Afghanistan, both in terms of the future of the country and in working to prevent a humanitarian and refugee crisis. 
  • That is why the Prime Minister outlined the UK government's proposal to host a virtual meeting of G7 to coordinate an international response and emphasised the importance of working together on the long-term future of Afghanistan on a call with President Macron yesterday. 
  • The UK government is stepping up support to facilitate the departure of British nationals and Afghan staff as well as working with the UK's international partners to respond to the situation.
