Ashraf Ghani said he would "fight to the death" the night before he fled Afghanistan, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken has said in an interview to Tolo News.
Former Afghan President Ghani fled to the UAE as the Western-backed government collapsed and the Taliban raced through the country, overrunning 300,000 government troops, to take control of Kabul on August 15.
Mr Blinken was asked by Tolo journalist Lotfullah Najafizada: "Did you help President Ghani flee the country?"
The news outlet shared the video of his reply in a tweet.
"What he (Ghani) told me in that conversation the night before he fled is that as he put it he was prepared to fight to the death," said Mr Blinken.
