The United States authorities helped to take an American and his children out of Afghanistan by land to a neighboring country for the first time after completing their military operation to evacuate people by air from this Islamic republic. This was announced on Monday by a high-ranking representative of the State Department to journalists on board the plane of Secretary of State Antony Blinken, who went to Qatar. The Associated Press quotes the words of the diplomat.
According to the representative of the Foreign Ministry, a U.S. citizen and his children “successfully left Afghanistan using a land route,” they were met by American diplomats at the border with a neighboring state. The official did not specify the details of the evacuation process. He also did not name the country to which the American and his children moved, citing security reasons and the need to keep the route secret for possible future evacuations.
According to the Reuters news agency, we are talking about four evacuated Americans. “This is the first evacuation by land route carried out with the assistance of the Department of State,” the official said, adding that the radical Taliban movement knew about the operation and did not hinder the progress of people.
