NATO continues diplomatic presence in Kabul as Taliban moving ahead

However, the official did not respond to questions on whether or not NATO planned to conduct a crisis meeting to deliberate the situation in Afghanistan.

NATO is maintaining its diplomatic intervention in Kabul by facilitating the upkeep of the city’s airport running, a NATO official told Reuters on Sunday as Taliban insurgents captured the Afghan capital.

“NATO is constantly assessing developments in Afghanistan,” the official said, adding the security of the alliance’s personnel was paramount and NATO would continue to adjust as necessary.

However, the official did not respond to questions on whether or not NATO planned to conduct a crisis meeting to deliberate the situation in Afghanistan. Taliban insurgents entered Kabul this Sunday and said that it is most probable that it may take control over the entire region within days.

After almost 20 years, NATO this summer concluded its military operations in Afghanistan and successfully transferred most of its troops from the country.

The association still governs a diplomatic representation in Kabul. A NATO spokesperson on Friday denied conferring details on the representation, referring to the security concerns, in a reply to a Reuters request.

NATO, headquartered in Brussels also functions as a forum to communicate national safety measures in Afghanistan, as the evacuation of citizens was directed by NATO ambassadors on Friday.
