UK officials hold talks with Taliban over the humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan

British representatives returned to Afghanistan on Thursday, according to a UK government spokesperson, for talks on how to respond to the country’s increasing humanitarian catastrophe.

According to Ugochi Daniels, the International Organization for Migration’s (IOM) Deputy Director-General for Operations, “the ongoing situation in Afghanistan is raising humanitarian needs and increasing displacement risks both within the country and beyond borders to countries in the region.”

Nick Dyer, the UK’s Special Envoy for Famine Prevention and Humanitarian Affairs, Hugo Shorter, the UK Mission to Afghanistan’s Charge d’Affaires ad Interim, and Hester Waddams, the UK Mission to Afghanistan’s Deputy Head of Mission and Political Counsellor, met with senior Taliban officials, including Mawlawi Amir Khan Muttaqi and Abdul Haq Wasiq.
