The US Secretary Of State announced Wednesday that they would continue to exert pressure on the Taliban to allow their chartered flight to leave Afghanistan to open Kabul Airport.
Numerous individuals and groups have organized chartered flights to flee Afghanistan to assist those who need to flee during the Taliban takeover.
The Taliban, however, refused to allow charter flights to take flight, claiming that some passengers didn’t have the necessary documents.
Anthony Brinken, U.S. secretary of state, said that “these flights must be able take off.” He spoke at a U.S.-based base in Germany. “We will do everything we can to make sure that they are able to do this every day.
“We will continue to pressure the Taliban to allow charter flights to leave,” he said, adding that the Taliban must also open the Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul, “allowing civilian aircraft to pass through normally will keep them safe and orderly. To leave. People from Afghanistan
Brinken stated that the United States works “round-the-clock” with advocates, legislators, and nongovernmental organizations to coordinate their efforts and offer guidance.
He said: “We made it clear for all parties-we made it clear for the Taliban-that these charters must be able to depart, and that we continue to work hard each day, almost every hour.”
Brinken’s comments came a day after the Taliban appointed a new interim government. He indicated that the United States is currently evaluating the announcement.
Brinken stated that despite claims of an inclusive government, the list announced only included Taliban members and their close associates, and not women. “We are also concerned by the track record and affiliation of some of these people.”
He later stated, “It certainly didn’t pass the inclusive test. It includes those with very difficult records.”
He said that the United States will be judging the Taliban “based its actions.”
Brinken stated, “The Taliban seek international legitimacy” and added that they are seeking support from the international community. “Any legitimacy or any support must always be sought.”
Brinken met Heiko Maas, German Foreign Minister, at Ramstein Air Force Base. He arrived there after visiting Qatar. Qatar is an important transit point during the evacuation process.
