This will also allow it to be used for humanitarian assistance, the White House press secretary noted.
The U.S. authorities are cooperating with Turkey and Qatar on the issue of resuming the full-fledged operation of the civilian part of the Kabul airport. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said this at a regular briefing for journalists.
“As for the airport, a more specific aspect that we are working on with Qatar and Turkey is to reopen the civilian part of the airport so that we can use it not only for flights so that people can fly away, but also for humanitarian aid, which we will work on distributing through the World Food Program [UN] and other structures,” Psaki said.
According to her, in this regard, the United States also interacts with representatives of the Taliban movement, using existing communication channels.
A representative of the political wing of the Taliban, Anas Haqqani, in a comment to Al Jazeera earlier, said that the airport of the Afghan capital would resume work within a few days. The interlocutor of the TV channel called the withdrawal of U.S. forces from Afghanistan a great event and described the day of the completion of the evacuation as a historical one.
