In a joint statement following the virtual meeting, the leaders of the G7 countries appealed to the radical Taliban movement, which has established power in Afghanistan. This was reported on the website of the British government.

"The legitimacy of any future government depends on the approach it now takes to uphold its international obligations and commitments to ensure a stable Afghanistan," the statement reads.

The leaders of the United States, Germany, France, Italy, Japan, Britain, Canada and the EU also reaffirmed their support for the people of Afghanistan and their intention to support Afghan refugees

"We will cooperate together, and with neighbouring and other countries in the region hosting refugees, on a coordinated approach to safe and legal routes for resettlement."

G7 also threatened the Taliban with responsibility for violating counter-terrorism commitments and human rights violations, including against women and minorities.

"In particular, we reaffirm that the Taliban will be held accountable for their actions on preventing terrorism, on human rights in particular those of women, girls and minorities and on pursuing an inclusive political settlement in Afghanistan."

On August 15, the Taliban militants seized Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan. Afghan President Ashraf Ghani said that he had left the country to avoid bloodshed as the Taliban entered the capital Kabul.

The mass media reported that up to 40 people died in the crowd and during the shooting. Later, it was reported that 12 people died in the chaos at the Kabul Airport according to the Taliban.

Besides, the UN secret document states that the Talibans activate the search of people, who, according to them, worked for the U.S. and NATO forces, including among the crowd at the Kabul Airport.
