Taliban say Kabul airport ready for international flights

Afghan interim gov't assures airlines, foreign countries of full cooperation, says it expects them to resume flights

News Service AA

The Taliban announced on Sunday that all technical glitches at the Kabul airport have been repaired and that international flights could resume.

The interim government in Afghanistan assured all airlines of full cooperation and said it expected all carriers and countries that had previously flown to Kabul to resume their flights.

In a statement, Foreign Ministry spokesman Abdul Qahar Balkhi said the recent political changes in Afghanistan caused a series of technical issues within the aviation sector due to which international flights to Afghanistan were suspended.

"As the problems at Kabul International Airport have been resolved and the airport is fully operational for domestic and international flights, the IEA (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," he stated.

Flights were suspended at Afghanistan's main international airport in Kabul last month after the Taliban took over power and US troops destroyed equipment and a radar system at the facility before leaving the country.
