US Secretary of State Antony Blinken says there’ll be a virtual meeting of G20 ministers on Afghanistan in Germany next week.
Blinken said he would lead the 20-nation ministerial meeting alongside German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas.
Speaking to reporters, the secretary of state said his department was in “constant contact” with Americans who are still in Afghanistan and want to leave. And he said the US will “maintain channels of communication” with the Taliban on important issues.
Blinken leaves for Qatar on Sunday where he will thank the government for its help with the recent huge airlift from Afghanistan.
