Boris Johnson and other world leaders attempted to persuade the US President to keep troops in Afghanistan to continue evacuation efforts past the end of the month at an emergency meeting today.

But Mr Biden is refusing to move his deadline of August 31.

The New York Times cited a senior administration official as saying the US President told world leaders the risk of a terror attack “very high”.

Speaking after the meeting of G7 leaders, Mr Johnson said: “We will go right up until the last minute that we can but you’ve heard what the President of the United States has said, you’ve heard what the Taliban have said.”

The Prime Minister added: “We’re confident we can get thousands more out, but the situation at the airport is not getting any better.”
