Afghanistan should not be breeding ground for terror - Johnson

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Monday the United Kingdom will "work with our friends and partners around the world to prevent Afghanistan from relapsing into a breeding ground for terror." Addressing the House of Commons, he stated the UK will also "make sure that we use all the levers that we can to ensure that the rights of women and girls are respected and that everybody who wants safe passage out of Afghanistan is allowed to do that."

Johnson added the UK government has "no direct information as yet of any increase" of the terror threat in Afghanistan. However, he assured the Parliament "that every effort will be made to make sure that our counter-terrorism agents have the resources they need to keep us safe."
