The United Arab Emirates says it has accepted Afghan President Ashraf Ghani and his family for “humanitarian considerations.”
Ghani left Kabul on Sunday as the Taliban staged their stunning takeover of the Afghan capital.
The statement carried by the UAE’s state-run WAM news agency on Wednesday did not say where Ghani was in the country.
It quoted the country’s Foreign Ministry in a one-sentence statement.
Earlier in the week, a spokesman for the Russian embassy in Kabul told Russian state news that Ghani had fled the city with four cars and a helicopter stuffed full of cash.
