Britain’s foreign minister says he can’t give a “precise timeline” about the end of U.K. evacuation flights from Afghanistan, but the mission will be over by Aug. 31.
Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said “it’s clear that the troops will be withdrawn by the end of the month.”
U.S. President Joe Biden has rejected pressure from Britain and other allies to extend the evacuation operation, saying it will end on Aug. 31. There are almost 6,000 American troops at the airport helping people flee the Taliban, along with smaller military contingents from other countries.
