British Prime Minister Boris Johnson called on other countries not to recognize the Taliban as the government of Afghanistan on a bilateral basis. It is reported by Reuters.

"We don't want anybody bilaterally recognising the Taliban," Johnson said.

At the same time, he believes that the West should work together on Afghanistan through mechanisms such as the United Nations and NATO.

"We want a united position amongst all the like-minded as far as we can get one so that we do whatever we can to prevent Afghanistan lapsing back into being a breeding ground for terror," he added.

He is confident that there will be a new administration in the country in the near future.

As we reported earlier, Taliban fighters took control of the entire territory of Afghanistan on Sunday, August 15th. 

The United Nations Security Council scheduled an emergency meeting for Monday morning after the Taliban appeared to take control of Afghanistan. The decision was made at the request of Estonia and Norway.

Council diplomats said Sunday that UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres will brief council members on the latest situation following the Taliban takeover of the capital, Kabul.
