Taliban urge international airlines to resume Afghan flights
Facilities at Kabul airport were badly damaged in the chaotic evacuation of more than 120,000 people that ended August 30 with the withdrawal of the last US troops.
Abdul Qahar Balkhi, the newly appointed spokesman for the ministry of foreign affairs, said the Taliban hoped proper commercial services would resume shortly.
"Many Afghan citizens were stuck outside and unable to return to their homeland," he said in a statement.
"Moreover, many Afghan citizens who have international employment or pursue education abroad are now facing difficulties in reaching their destinations."
Services at Kabul airport were restored mostly with technical help from Qatar, the United Arab Emirates and Turkey.
