UN adopts Afghanistan resolution, but no ‘safe zone’

The UN Security Council has adopted a resolution urging the safe passage for Afghans and foreign nations departing from Afghanistan.
The United States, United Kingdom and France drafted the resolution but China and Russia abstained.
The US hopes the Taliban will hold true to its August 27 statement promising Afghans they could travel abroad by land and air.
