U.S. thanks several nations for help during evacuation from Kabul
The United States has thanked several countries including India for their “generous offers” to help in a variety of ways regarding the relocation efforts for at-risk Afghans during critical evacuation operations from Afghanistan. The United States forces left Afghanistan on Tuesday morning, marking the end of a chaotic and messy exit from America’s longest war.
“With support from partners and allies, the United States put together a global network consisting of more than two dozen countries spanning four continents with total temporary transit capacity of 65,000 people on a rolling basis, including up to 2,000 spaces to accommodate persons that need longer-term processing,” the state department said.
The U.S. State Department on September 6 informed that the country has evacuated four Americans from Afghanistan, marking the first US-facilitated overland evacuation since the pullout from the war-ravaged nation. An official said that the Embassy greeted the Americans as they crossed the border into the third country. The official further also confirmed that these are the first four Americans that the U.S. has facilitated in this manner since the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan.
The U.S. had left the war-torn nation on August 30, marking the end of a chaotic exit from American’s longest war. In total, the U.S. and its partners have relocated over 124,000 people to safety, including 6,000 U.S. citizens. The Taliban, on the other hand, has given assurance that foreigners and Afghans with the appropriate travel documents will be allowed to leave the nation.
