U.S. President Joe Biden will take part in urgent talks of the Group of Seven (G7) leaders in a virtual format on the situation in Afghanistan on August 24. This was confirmed on Sunday by the White House press service.
“President Biden will meet with the G7 leaders in a virtual format on August 24, 2021. The leaders [of the countries] will discuss the continuation of close coordination on Afghanistan policy and the evacuation of our citizens, brave Afghans who have helped us over the past twenty years, and other vulnerable Afghans. They will also discuss plans to provide humanitarian assistance and support to Afghan refugees,” the text says.
Earlier, the President of the European Commission (EC), Ursula von der Leyen, said that she would propose to consider at the meeting of the “seven,” which is an informal association of seven economically developed countries (Great Britain, Germany, Italy, Canada, the United States, France, and Japan), an international scheme for the reception and accommodation of refugees from Afghanistan. She drew attention to the fact that “3.7 million people have already become refugees in Afghanistan, 80% of them are women and girls.”
