At the same time, the agency does not specify whether Ross Wilson, the U.S. Charge d’affaires in Afghanistan, has flown home.
The main staff of the American embassy in Kabul left the capital of Afghanistan during the final stage of evacuation. This was reported on Monday by the Reuters news agency, citing its sources.
The agency does not specify whether Ross Wilson, the U.S. Charge d’affaires in Afghanistan, has flown home. As The Washington Post reported earlier, President Joe Biden intends to have time to recall all American diplomats from Kabul, including Wilson, by August 31. According to the publication, the lack of a clear plan on this issue practically guarantees that the U.S. diplomatic presence in Kabul can be interrupted for weeks, months, or longer.
Units of the United States Air Force were sent to the Kabul airport to ensure the evacuation of Americans, citizens of other countries, and refugees from Afghanistan. The U.S. authorities intend to complete the evacuation operation on time – by August 31.
