G7 leaders to gather for urgent talks on Afghanistan on Tuesday, informs Boris Johnson

London: The leaders of G7 countries will have urgent talks on the situation in Afghanistan, a country occupied by Taliban last Sunday, on August 24, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Sunday.

Later on Sunday, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki confirmed the participation of US President Joe Biden in the virtual meeting, adding that the talks will revolve around evacuation of Americans and "vulnerable" Afghans and humanitarian assistance for refugees.

Earlier in the day, Johnson's office said that the UK prime minister and UN chief Antonio Guterres had held a phone conversation devoted to Afghanistan, which was taken over by the Taliban last week and saw the collapse of the civilian government.

On August 15, the Taliban entered Kabul.

President Ashraf Ghani resigned and fled the country to prevent what he described as bloodshed that would occur if militants stormed the city.

Many countries have since started evacuating their citizens and diplomatic personnel from Afghanistan.

Anti-Taliban demonstrations are taking place in different parts of the globe.
