‘We did the right thing’: PM Morrison

Prime Minister Scott Morrison says sending Australian troops to Afghanistan was “the right thing," as the cause “was, and always will be, a just one”.

“As with any war, of course, there are errors and miscalculations and history won’t shy away from that, and neither will we,” Mr Morrison said.

“We must recognise with realism and humility, the limits of our power and resources."

Mr Morrison’s comments come as the Australian government ramps up efforts to evacuate Australians in Kabul, and Afghans who worked alongside Australian forces.

Mr Morrison told Parliament on Monday the evacuation flights “will continue for as long as we can continue to operate and get people out”.
