Hosting Ashraf Ghani, family on humanitarian grounds”, announced UAE

News Desk:

United Arab Emirates (UAE) on Wednesday announced that “it has welcomed Ashraf Ghani and his family on humanitarian grounds”.

It remained unclear whether Ghani flew directly to the UAE or was at another location since he left Kabul on Sunday, just as the Taliban approached Kabul.

The statement carried by the UAE’s state-run WAMnews agency on Wednesday did not say where Ghani was in the country.

At the time of fleeing the country on Sunday, Ghani had said,he was leaving to “prevent a flood of bloodshed”, as the Taliban entered the capital, capping a lightning offensive across the country.

Ghani had said he believed “countless patriots would be martyred and the city of Kabul would be destroyed” if he had stayed behind.

“The Taliban have won, and are now responsible for the honour, property and self-preservation of their countrymen,” he said in a statement shared on Facebook.
