Madrid, 26 Aug. (Europa Press) –
The Dutch executive said in a letter to parliament that the Dutch government would finalize the evacuations from Kabul airport this Thursday.
“Every effort is being made to ensure that the hundreds of people inside the airport today board the scheduled flights,” reads a letter collected by various local media outlets.
The last two buses of citizens with Dutch passports arrived at Kabul airport this morning, the UN said.
The Dutch government has asked those who have not yet been to the airport to stay away due to the dangerous situation in the region.
Already on Wednesday, the United States advised its citizens to stay away from the international terminal in the Afghan capital due to “security threats outside the Gates”, while the United Kingdom’s State Department stated on its website that there was a “constant and lofty threat.”
Dutch Foreign Minister Sigrid Gock warned that the Netherlands could not complete all its exits from Afghanistan.
Many countries, such as Poland or Belgium, have warned of a halt to the planned withdrawal of U.S. troops from Kabul airport on August 31.
