HKIA’s security will remain intact – US
Despite incidents of stampede and firing at Kabul airport, at least 10 Afghans have been killed in the past few days. US Army Major General Hank Taylor has insisted that US forces will maintain security at Hamid Karzai International Airport (HKIA), which enables the safe, orderly evacuation of Americans and Afghans. According to the news agency Xinhua, General Taylor said this on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, US National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan said the US was in touch with the Taliban and was told they were ready to evacuate civilians to the airport. Earlier in the day, Pentagon press secretary John Kirby said US commanders on the ground had discussions with the Taliban outside the airport without giving further details.
Facing increasing criticism from the public and lawmakers over the chaotic evacuation, President Joe Biden said on Monday he stood by his decision to withdraw US troops from Afghanistan. Afghan President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani left the country on Sunday as Taliban forces entered the capital of Kabul and captured the Rashtrapati Bhavan.
Where is Ashraf Ghani?
After leaving the country, Afghan President Ashraf Ghani has now taken refuge in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the UAE. Earlier there was talk of him going from Tajikistan to Oman. But according to sources, now he will remain in Abu Dhabi. According to Russian state media, President Ashraf Ghani stuffed cash in his helicopter while fleeing Afghanistan, but due to lack of space, some bags full of notes had to be left on the runway. Russia’s official media had claimed this in a news on Monday.
