Macron says France, Britain to propose Kabul safe zone to U.N.

Source: Reuters

France, Britain and Germany are working on a United Nations proposal aimed at establishing a safe zone in Kabul to allow safe passage for people trying to leave Afghanistan, French President Emmanuel Macron said on Sunday.

Macron, who said France had begun discussions with the Taliban to explore how further evacuations might proceed, said the resolution would be brought on Monday to an emergency U.N. Security Council meeting of veto-wielding members.

"There are some discussions to see how flights could be re-established," Macron said in a TV interview broadcast by France's TF1, adding that Qatar was also helping negotiations.

"What we have proposed, and what we plan to bring to the U.N. Security Council along with Britain and Germany is a solution that we have used before in other operations, which would involve creating a zone allowing people to arrive at that airport."

I've heard the US is now part of this proposal. Do we not know what it means to get out?

How about having France and UK give it a go and see how it works out for them?


Update: Sounds like the Taliban rejected the plan, and it was left out of the UN resolution.

Rest assured that we can still launch drone attacks. /s
