In an interview with LBC Radio, Wallace said he “deeply regrets” that not all Afghans eligible to join the UK would be evacuated.
“Some people will not come back, and we have to do everything we can in third countries to deal with these people,” said Wallace, a former Scottish Guard commander.
When asked why he felt the situation “personally,” Wallace began by saying “because I am a soldier,” then after pausing for a moment he said, “Because it is sad and the West has done what it has done and we have to do everything we can to get people out and fulfill our commitments. 20 years of dedication, So that’s what it is.”
Last weekend, the British government sent 600 troops to Afghanistan to help evacuate some 4,000 British citizens in the country, in addition to those Afghans who assisted British forces during a military operation, for example by working as interpreters. The first group of British citizens had already returned home on Monday.
