On Tuesday, US President Joe Biden will meet with the leaders of the Group of Seven (G7) to address evacuation operations in Afghanistan.

This virtual conference would be the first time Biden meets America’s allies about the Taliban’s capture of Kabul and the unfolding situation in Afghanistan, which has worried and infuriated some of the allies.

Leaders from the United States, the United Kingdom, Italy, France, Germany, Japan, and Canada make up the G7 group.

The summit, which will be chaired by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, will concentrate on evacuation operations in Afghanistan and long-term strategies for the country when the United States pulls back its troops by August 31, according to Reuters.

The leaders will also address how to safeguard the achievements made in Afghanistan over the last two decades, especially in the development of girl’s education and women’s rights.

Economic sanctions against the Taliban if they commit human rights atrocities, as well as whether or not to acknowledge the Taliban as the country’s leaders, would be addressed during the conference, according to reports in the UK.

In a media release, Biden, whose government has been reprimanded for the downfall of Kabul, emphasized that the G7 summit will aid the international community in reaching a long-term resolution.

According to Biden while unfolding the purpose of the G7 summit, he said

Our first priority is to complete the evacuation of our citizens and those Afghans who have assisted our efforts over the last 20 years, but as we look ahead to the next phase, it’s vital we come together as an international community and agree to a joint approach for the longer term.

He continued by saying

That’s why I’ve called an emergency meeting of the G7 – to coordinate our response to the immediate crisis, to reaffirm our commitment to the Afghan people, and to ask our international partners to match the UK’s commitments to support those in need

The summit will elaborate on Biden’s discussions with Johnson, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Emmanuel Macron, and Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi earlier this week, as per White House press secretary Jen Psaki. There has been no comment from the White House on the conflict between America and its allies over Biden’s abrupt evacuation decision.
