The UK Government plans to push world leaders to consider new sanctions on the Taliban.
Following the 18 August 2021 Home Office announcement that it intends to provide leave to remain in the UK to 20,000 Afghans under the Afghan citizens’ resettlement scheme, as mentioned in our blog titled “Resettlement of Afghans following Taliban recapture of Afghanistan - UK Government plans”, the UK Government also plans to push world leaders to consider new sanctions on the Taliban.
The G7 are meeting this week to discuss the crisis in Afghanistan. Britain is planning to push world leaders to consider economic sanctions and the withhold of aid if the Taliban commits human rights abuses and allows its territory to be used as a haven for militants.
PM Boris Johnson has the support of US President Joe Biden after he expressed that he would support Britain's push for sanctions if the Taliban committed abuses.
