Speaking to Sky News, Raab said they are ‘a few hundred’ whose eligibility to be evacuated was unclear because they lacked documents.
The head of British diplomacy assured that his office is in contact with third parties to facilitate the procedures in case that these people can reach countries such as Pakistan.
The United Kingdom concluded on Sunday the evacuation of its citizens and the Afghans who collaborated with the British troops during the 20-year occupation of Afghanistan by the US-led international coalition.
Washington also withdrew on Monday its last soldiers, in compliance with the agreement reached in 2020 with the Taliban movement, which regained power on August 15 after two decades of fight, and took full control of Kabul’s airport on Tuesday.
According to Raab, the evacuation operation began in April and since then, more than 17,000 people, among British citizens and Afghan collaborators, have been taken out of Afghanistan.
