Qatar’s ambassador to Afghanistan revealed that a technical team was able to reopen Kabul airport to receive aid and the airport’s runway has been repaired in cooperation with authorities in Afghanistan.
Qatar’s Al Jazeera news channel cited its correspondent as saying domestic flights had also resumed operations.
Qatar’s Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani, on Thursday at a joint news conference with Britain’s Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab in Doha, had said the Gulf state was talking to the Taliban and working with Turkey for potential technical support to restart operations in Kabul airport.
Although, thousands who are desperate to also escape the fear of life under Taliban rule are still in Afghanistan as the evacuation operation ended at the end of August. The Taliban have, however, assured safe passage for those who still want to leave.
