Georgia to send aircraft to evacuate its citizens from Kabul, Deputy FM says

Georgian Foreign Ministry (MFA), in coordination with the Prime Minister’s Office, is actively working to evacuate Georgian citizens from Afghanistan, Deputy Foreign Minister Aleksandre Khvtisiashvili said on Monday.

“Ex-military Georgian citizens work in the private sector in Afghanistan. In particular, 17 citizens are employed in Canadian and six in American companies,” Khvtisiashvili noted.

Deputy Minister claims those citizens failed to arrive at Kabul airport last night as the situation is tense.

“The Georgian government is working to help its citizens reach the airport. Turkey confirmed to bring those people to the airport by armoured vehicles, and then partner countries will ensure their evacuation. Moreover, the Georgian government also decided to send an aircraft to transport them home,” Khvtisiashvili stated.

The Taliban has entered Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan, on Sunday and took over the presidential palace. President Ghani has already left the country.
