The participants of the virtual summit reaffirmed their commitment to humanitarian efforts in support of the Afghan people.
U.S. President Joe Biden took part in a virtual summit of G20 leaders to discuss the situation in Afghanistan. Leaders of some non-G20 countries and heads of international financial institutions were also invited to the summit.
According to the White House press service, the summit participants noted the urgent need to focus on the ongoing efforts to combat terrorism, including against threats from the Vilayat Khorasan group and ensuring uncontrolled exit from the country for foreign citizens and Afghans with the necessary documents.
The leaders also reaffirmed their collective commitment to providing humanitarian assistance to the Afghan people through independent international organizations and promoting basic human rights for all Afghans, including women, girls, and members of minorities.
“The United States remains committed to working closely with the international community and using diplomatic, humanitarian and economic instruments to resolve the situation in Afghanistan and provide support to the Afghan people,” the press release says.
