UK’s Evacuation Wll Continue ‘As Long As Its Safe’

Downing Street says the UK’s evacuation efforts will continue as long as it is safe to do so.

It comes after a Taliban spokesman said that British and American troops staying in Afghanistan past 31 August would be crossing a “red line”.

Asked about the comments, the prime minister’s official spokesman said: “I’ve seen the reports. I don’t think we’ve had any direct communication to that end.

“We will continue to run our evacuation process as long as the security situation allows.”

He added that the issue would be included in discussions with G7 leaders tomorrow.
