The Taliban no longer allow Afghan citizens to come to Kabul Airport. “We ask Americans not to encourage Afghans to leave. We need their talents, “said Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid. He reiterated that the US must complete the evacuation by August 31 and that the Taliban does not accept “any extension”.
At the same time, the spokesman assured that life in the country is slowly returning to normal. According to him, hospitals, schools and universities are operating again. (tasr, ap, afp)
