Safe return of 1,200 people, including key diplomats and 300 US citizens, from Kabul: Biden administration

Senior officials in US President Joe Biden’s administration say the US has finally recalled all key diplomats in Kabul, including Ambassador Ras Wilson, ahead of Biden’s deadline on Tuesday. Apart from this, a total of 1200 people, including 300 American citizens, have been evacuated from Afghanistan in the last 24 hours. However, there is still a danger of more drone attacks at the airport. According to a statement issued by the White House, 26 US military flights evacuated about 1,200 people, while two coalition flights evacuated 50 people.

According to the report of the news agency AP, the US has reiterated that the Taliban should fulfill its promise. Shortly before confirming the airstrike in Kabul, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said it was the deadliest time in Afghanistan in the past few days. Despite the new alert from the US State Department, the operation to evacuate the Americans from Kabul has continued despite orders for military action.

Along with this, people have been asked to stay away from Kabul airport in view of the danger. Biden’s security adviser Jake Sullivan said that the Americans who wanted to leave Kabul before the deadline, we have sent back 300 Americans. About the same number of American citizens were also present at the airport. That’s why I say that there is still a chance that the Americans who want to leave from here, reach the airport, they can be sent back safely.

Sullivan said that going forward, we will do our best to give legitimate American citizens a safe way out of here. US State Department spokesman Ned Price said his government expected the Taliban to abide by all of its commitments and promises. He said that from time to time many statements of Taliban have been heard. Some of his statements are positive. But what our international partners want to see is their work, not talk.
