Qatar has reached an agreement with the Taliban to resume charter evacuations from Kabul airport, Axios reports citing Qatari Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani.
The agreement provides for two flights a week, chartered by Qatar Airways, and will allow the United States and other countries to evacuate thousands more of its citizens and at-risk Afghans.
A senior Qatari government source told Reuters on January 27 that Qatar Airways had resumed flights to evacuate passengers from Afghanistan after a two-month hiatus.
Qatar stopped operating evacuation flights in early December following a dispute with the Taliban over which passengers could fly on the flights.
Negotiations are also underway to allow one flight per week, operated by the Afghan airline Ariana.
