Dutch Foreign Minister Sigrid Kaag has tendered her resignation
A motion had been passed against her; the government claim she had been discouragingly slow in the attempt at evacuating Afghans and abandoned so many Afghans that could have fled the country.
The now ex-foreign minister was unapologetic about the decisions he had made so far in the handling of issues but accepted the verdict requesting her resignation.
This makes her the first official from the Western government who has had to resign over the evacuation chaos propelled by the presence of the Taliban overtaking administrations in Afghanistan.
Sigrid Kaag admitted that the government has been slow in the handling of evacuation due to the newness of the development that had taken over Afghanistan.
Even though the Netherlands has successfully been able to remove two thousand persons from Afghanistan within the last two weeks of August, a large number of Afghan interpreters that had worked under her were unfortunately forgotten.

Her move to bring about a coalition government which is due for discussion in the weekend will not be taking place anytime soon as she is no longer meant to go to London on Friday with Prime Minister Mark Rutte for discussions with Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
The ex-diplomat had told officials who saw to her resignation from the position of foreign affairs minister that she was passionate about being a foreign minister.
