LONDON – Britain would have wanted to see a “diverse” leadership team in Afghanistan after the Taliban announced an interim government, but that is not what London has seen, a spokesman for Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Wednesday.

“We will continue to judge the Taliban on their actions … We would want to see, in any situation, a diverse group in leadership which seeks to address the pledges that the Taliban themselves have set out and that’s not what we have seen,” the spokesman said.
