The G20 will meet because of Afghanistan

There will be a virtual meeting of G20 ministers on Afghanistan in Germany. It was announced by U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken on Friday, September 3, according to BBC.

The meeting will be organized by the U.S. and Germany.

The U.S. foreign minister said he would go to Doha on Sunday. There he will meet with representatives of the Qatari authorities and Afghan refugees. Then he’ll fly to Germany. There, Blinken will discuss the situation in Afghanistan with German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas and then take part in a virtual G20 summit.

The main topic of the virtual meeting will be the demands on the Taliban.

“The focus will be on issues related to freedom of movement, the fight against terrorism, and commitments to respect basic human rights in the country,” the report said.

Blinken also added that his office is in “constant contact” with Americans who are still in Afghanistan and want to leave.

The United States intends to increase the number of refugees from Afghanistan accepted into the country to at least 50,000.
