Evacuating as many Afghans as Canada wants ‘nearly impossible’: Trudeau

DM

It will be “almost impossible” to get many people out of Afghanistan in the coming weeks, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau warned reporters on Thursday. That’s because the Taliban is continuing to block access for Afghans wishing to leave the country, he said. “Unless the Taliban shift their posture significantly, which is something the international community and Canada are working on, it is going to be very, very difficult to get many people out,” Trudeau, who is running for re-election, told reporters. “We will get some, certainly, but to get many people out, as many as we’d want, is going to be almost impossible in the coming weeks.”
