Fall of Kabul
The international community should continue to engage with Afghanistan, Turkey's foreign minister said on Sept. 22.
Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu and his counterparts exchanged opinions on irregular migration and the humanitarian situation in Afghanistan as part of a virtual G20 foreign ministers meeting hosted by the Italian chair of the intergovernmental forum.
Kabul International Airport has officially announced that it is open for domestic and international flights, Khaama Press reported, citing a source from the Civil Aviation Authority.
As a result of the terrorist act of August 26, the runway was severely damaged.
Technical experts from Qatar and Turkey helped resume operations at the international airport.
The Taliban are finally beginning to consolidate power in Afghanistan.
The group is appointing government ministers as it attempts to form a functional apparatus.
The first appointment was an open mockery to the United States - Mullah Abdul Qayyum Zakir as a Defense Minister.
Zakir is a former Guantanamo Bay prisoner between 2001 and 2007.
In addition to this photo, which will probably mark history, a picture from February 15, 1989 is being shared en masse on social networks.
It shows General Boris Gromov, Commander of the 40th Army of the USSR, crossing hand in hand with his son over the Friendship Bridge from Afghanistan to Uzbekistan. He was the last Soviet soldier to leave the country.
The hardline Islamist Taliban celebrated their total return to power on Tuesday with gunfire and diplomacy, after the last US troops flew out of Afghanistan to end two decades of war.
The United States' longest military conflict drew to a close on Monday night when its forces abandoned Kabul's airport, where it had overseen a frenzied airlift that saw more than 123,000 people flee.
