UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson will convene G7 leaders on Tuesday for urgent talks on the situation in Afghanistan.

  • The UK is playing a leading role in bringing the international community together to ensure safe evacuations, prevent a humanitarian crisis, and support the Afghan people to secure the gains of the last 20 years. 
  • That is why the Prime Minister will convene talks with G7 leaders this week. Our priorities remain addressing the situation on the ground, supporting humanitarian workers, and securing the progress on development and civil society that has been made. 
  • The PM has also spoken again with the UN Secretary-General to discuss the situation in Afghanistan, following the Foreign Secretary’s meeting with NATO Allies on Friday, to co-ordinate a unified approach to counter-terrorism and humanitarian aid. 
  • The UK is determined to continue working together to address the situation in Afghanistan - to safeguard stability and in particular to protect the rights of women, girls, and ethnic minorities.
