London, UK Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said that he has discussed the situation in Afghanistan with German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas and both agreed to work together to promote regional stability.
“Today, @HeikoMaas & I agreed that we must cooperate on security and safeguard humanitarian access in Afghanistan. [UK] & [Germany], as NATO & G7 allies, will work together to promote regional stability,” Raab posted on Twitter on late Friday.
The Taliban entered Kabul on August 15, ending a weeks-long offensive and resulting in the collapse of the US-backed government in the war-torn Afghanistan.
On the same day, Afghan President Ashraf Ghani resigned and left the country for the United Arab Emirates. The seizure of power has forced thousands of Afghans to seek escape from the country for fear of reprisals from the militants.
