After the Islamic extremist movement seized control of the country from Afghanistan, Britain began negotiations with the Taliban to ensure a “free way”.
This Wednesday, the AFP news agency received confirmation from the British government Simon Gass, the British special envoy for change in Afghanistan, will travel to Doha to meet with Taliban leaders.
A government spokesman said in a statement that Ghaz would “meet with senior Taliban representatives” to emphasize the importance of free travel from Afghanistan for British and Afghan citizens who have worked for us.
This was the first public confirmation of diplomatic moves between London and the Taliban.
After the Afghan army surrendered to the Taliban, London joined forces with the United States in a massive operation to expel more than a million people from Afghanistan.
The British Prime Minister was severely criticized after thousands of Afghans who helped NATO were left behind in their country.
So far, more than 8000 Afghans who helped NATO forces have been able to leave Afghanistan, and London has promised that they can stay in the UK.
