British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said that the United Kingdom is ready, if necessary, to negotiate with the Taliban, Reuters reported.
вЂњI want to assure people that our political and diplomatic efforts to find a solution for Afghanistan through working with the Taliban, of course, if necessary, will continue,вЂќ Johnson said.
The prime minister said Britain had evacuated 6,115 people over the past six days, including 399 Britons and their family members, 320 embassy staff, and 402 Afghan nationals.
Earlier, the British Chief of Staff spoke about cooperation with the Taliban.
On August 15 the Taliban announced that they had taken control of the entire territory of Afghanistan. They took control of state television in Kabul and called for calm in an appeal to citizens.
In the Afghan capital, thousands of people took refuge at the airport, trying to get out of the country. Several people died during the crash, as well as from trying to fly away on the landing gear of U.S. air force planes.
