Kabul int'l airport now ready for int'l flights: official

 KABUL, Sept. 27, 2021 (BSS/Xinhua) - The Kabul International Airport is
now fully operational for international flights and all airliners can resume
airlifts, spokesman of Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Taliban caretaker
government announced on Sunday.

   "As the problems at Kabul International Airport have been resolved and the
airport is fully operational for domestic and international flights, the
Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan assures all airlines of its full cooperation
and expects all airlines and countries that had previously flown to Kabul to
resume their flights as before," spokesman Abdul Qahar Balkhi said in a
statement.

   The Ministry of Foreign Affairs once again assures full cooperation on its
part in conducting flights more than 40 days after Taliban takeover, he
added.

   The Kabul airport was damaged with its many facilities destroyed during
the withdrawal of U.S.-led forces and American nationals on Aug. 31.

   Airport authorities confirmed that the Kabul airport has received planes
carrying humanitarian assistance from Qatar, Bahrain, the United Arab
Emirates, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and Pakistan as well as a number of
commercial flights from Pakistan, Iran and Qatar in recent weeks despite long
suspension in the flights since mid-last month.
