Employees of the American diplomatic mission in Afghanistan were taken to the Kabul airport against the background of the Taliban offensive.
“The embassy staff is being transported to the airport so that they can safely and safely perform their work,” U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said in an interview with ABC News.
Earlier, the leadership of the Taliban movement ordered its forces to enter the capital, which, according to the militants, the police and other security forces left.
The diplomatic missions of Germany and Canada have temporarily stopped working. The Russian representative office in Kabul earlier said there is no threat to employees; they will not be evacuated.
Negotiations between the Taliban and government representatives have been going on all day in the presidential Palace; the process of transferring power is being discussed. Former President Ashraf Ghani left the country, he resigned. The Taliban forces control the entire republic.
