Four Americans evacuated from Afghanistan via land route
The United States on Tuesday evacuated its first four citizens from Afghanistan via land route, as the withdrawal was completed on August 30.
Citing a senior US State Department official, ABC News reported that they were evacuated without interference from the Taliban.
The Taliban had earlier assured nearly 100 countries that they would assist in evacuating the citizens left in Afghanistan after a chaotic US withdrawal that saw thousands of foreign nationals being airlifted in the last two weeks of August.
“Four Americans made their way across the land with Taliban knowledge,” the report said and added that the official declined to say which country they arrived in but added they were in “good condition” and met by US embassy staff from the local embassy.
Pakistan has been assisting foreign governments in their evacuation efforts, which have been lauded internationally.
Meanwhile, Pakistan’s Ambassador to the US Dr Asad Majeed Khan has said that he was unaware of the route taken by the US citizens. He, however, said Pakistan is ready to provide all kinds of assistance.
The envoy said that so far more than 9,000 people had transited through Pakistan and the country was still engaged with the international community in this regard.
