The UAE has welcomed President Ashraf Ghani and his family into the country on humanitarian grounds. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation confirmed this in an official statement.

President Ashraf Ghani said he planned to return to Afghanistan as members of the Taliban opened fire on a group of protesters in the provinces of Khost and Nangarhar on Wednesday.

The Taliban have replaced the official flag of Afghanistan with their white banner in areas they seized.

“We started the protest and carried the black, red and green Afghan national flag across the streets. Thousands of our people died for this flag, we can’t betray them.

"Giving up would be a betrayal of the values these three colours stand for. Giving up would be a betrayal of those little girls that go to school for a better future. It would be a betrayal to those brave soldiers who lost their lives to protect this flag,” Mr Shah said.
