LONDON — Prime Minister Boris Johnson began a long-anticipated shake-up of his cabinet on Wednesday, reassigning his foreign secretary and several other ministers in a move designed to revitalize a government whose popularity now appears to be waning. The biggest change came with the removal of Dominic Raab, whose position as foreign secretary had been considered tenuous after widespread criticism of his handling of the evacuation from Afghanistan. Mr. Raab was appointed justice secretary but was also given the title of deputy prime minister, softening the blow of a move that will be seen by many as a demotion. Mr. Johnson replaced Mr. Raab with Liz Truss, the trade secretary, seen by many as a rising star in the Conservative Party. Mr. Raab’s standing during the evacuation of Afghanistan had been further diminished by his decision to delay returning from vacation as the Taliban took control of Kabul.

Jeff Gilbert/Pool via REUTERSLONDON, Sept 8 (Reuters) - British foreign minister Dominic Raab criticised the arrest of members of a pro-democracy group by Hong Kong police on Wednesday as being another example of how China was using a security law to stifle dissent in the former British colony. "Today's arrests of members of the Hong Kong Alliance are another chilling demonstration of how the National Security Law is being used by Beijing to dismantle civil society and stifle political dissent in Hong Kong," Raab said on Twitter. His comment came after Hong Kong police arrested four members of a group that organises an annual June 4 rally to commemorate those who died in the bloody 1989 Tiananmen Square crackdown. read moreReporting by Michael Holden; Editing by Kate HoltonOur Standards: The Thomson Reuters Trust Principles.

IFRC urges urgent global humanitarian support for Afghanistan
  + stars: | 2021-09-07 | by ( )   time to read: +2 min
Foreign governments have pledged continued humanitarian support, but there is no clarity on how this help will be delivered following the fall of Kabul to the Islamist militant Taliban movement last month. "Some 18 million Afghans – half the population – are in need of humanitarian assistance as severe drought compounds hardships caused by years of conflict and the pandemic," an IFRC statement said. The Taliban, too, have appealed to the international community to continue support for Afghanistan. British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab, whose country has increased its aid budget for Afghanistan, said last week that humanitarian assistance would flow through agencies and not to the Taliban directly. Western countries fear that the looming humanitarian crisis and economic collapse could result in hundreds of thousands of Afghan refugees.

Only one in 125 guards at the British embassy in Kabul were evacuated despite promises to help, the Guardian reported. The UK conducted a rescue operation to evacuate people from Kabul after the Taliban captured Afghanistan. Staff who guarded the British embassy at Kabul were employed on outsourced contracts by a firm called GardaWorld, which has now fired them, the Guardian reported. During the August evacuation effort, the department issued a statement saying: "We will help all those Afghan security guards contracted through GardaWorld to protect the embassy. But despite the UK government's promise of help, only one guard called Faiz successfully fled to the UK, the Guardian reported.

DUBAI, Sept 4 (Reuters) - Qatar's ambassador to Afghanistan said a technical team was able to reopen Kabul airport to receive aid, according to Qatar's Al Jazeera news channel, which also cited its correspondent as saying domestic flights had restarted. The airport's runway has been repaired in cooperation with authorities in Afghanistan, the ambassador said, according to Al Jazeera. The channel said two domestic flights were operated from Kabul to the cities of Mazar-i-Sharif and Kandahar. Kabul airport had been closed since the end of the massive U.S.-led airlift of its citizens, other Western nationals and Afghans who helped Western countries. The end of that operation marked the withdrawal of the last U.S. forces from Afghanistan after 20 years of war.

REUTERS/Saeed Ali Achakzai/File PhotoLONDON, Sept 3 (Reuters) - Britain said on Friday it would release 30 million pounds ($41 million) of aid to support nations neighbouring Afghanistan dealing with refugees fleeing the country since the Taliban took control. The remainder will go to nations that experienced a significant number of refugees to provide essential services and supplies, it said. "It is vital that we help those fleeing Afghanistan and do not allow the crisis there to undermine regional stability," British foreign minister Dominic Raab said. Many fleeing the country are believed to be heading to Pakistan, while another of Afghanistan's neighbours Tajikistan has pledged to accept 100,000 refugees. Britain itself has said it would take some 20,000 Afghan refugees with 5,000 expected to arrive in the first year.

LONDON, Sept 1 (Reuters) - Britain's foreign minister Dominic Raab said the intelligence assessment was that it was unlikely Kabul would fall this year as he defended Britain's withdrawal from Afghanistan after the Taliban swept across the country much more quickly. Britain, like the United States, failed to predict how quickly the Afghan government would fall, meaning it had not made sufficient preparation for the chaos that would follow when the Taliban seized power. Defending his handling of the crisis, Raab said he had had more than 40 meetings or calls where Afghanistan was on the agenda between March and end of August. Raab said he would travel to the region, including visiting Pakistan for the first time as foreign minister, later on Wednesday to discuss the crisis.

British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said the UK could be involved in future military ops in Afghanistan. Raab added that the UK reserves its right to exercise lawful self-defense, particularly where terrorist groups are concerned. He admitted that there were intelligence failings in Afghanistan, but said the blame does not lie solely with the UK. Raab said that the UK would not "get ahead of ourselves" but did not rule out the possibility of future military intervention in the region. More than 100,000 British soldiers have been deployed to Afghanistan in the last 20 years, per the British Army.

Evacuees walk to be processed during an evacuation at Hamid Karzai International Airport, Kabul, Afghanistan, August 25, 2021. A Politico report on Monday said American forces decided to keep the Abbey Gate open longer than they wanted to allow Britain to continue evacuating personnel. "We got our civilian staff out of the processing centre by Abbey Gate, but it's just not true to suggest that, other than securing our civilian staff inside the airport, that we were pushing to leave the gate open," Raab told Sky News. He said Britain had taken mitigating action, including warning people not to come to the airport. Raab defended his response to the Taliban taking control of Afghanistan, dismissing reports he failed to do enough to prepare.
