A British government spokesman said in a statement that Simon Gass, the special envoy of Prime Minister Boris Johnson to Afghanistan, had traveled to the Qatari capital, Doha, to meet with Taliban representatives.

“Qas will meet with British nationals from Afghanistan and senior Taliban officials who have worked with us for the past twenty years to emphasize the importance of a safe exit from Afghanistan,” the statement said.

The United States completed its withdrawal from Afghanistan on Monday, ending a 20-year war and bringing the Taliban back to power.
