The Turkish Defense Ministry announced the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan

The Turkish Defense Ministry announced the beginning of the return of the Turkish military from Afghanistan.

Earlier, Ankara offered to provide security for the Kabul airport after the withdrawal of US troops, subject to some conditions put forward by it. Still, the representative of the Taliban movement, Zabihullah Mujahid, said that the Taliban want good relations with Turkey but do not want to see Turkish soldiers in Afghanistan.

“The Turkish military, having successfully fulfilled their duty in Afghanistan, are returning home with honor. After negotiations and an assessment of the current situation and the conditions created, the evacuation of the Turkish military was started,” the Turkish military department reported.

It is noted that the Turkish military has been in Afghanistan since 2002 “within the framework of UN, NATO missions and bilateral agreements to contribute to peace, tranquility, and stability.”

“After the United States and NATO announced that they would leave Afghanistan, Turkey stated that it would continue to stay there as long as the Afghan people wanted it, and under certain circumstances, it was ready to retain responsibility for the safe operation of the Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul, as it had been for six years,” the Turkish Defense Ministry said.

According to the report, the Turkish military suppressed the recent riots at the Kabul airport and ensured its safe functioning by evacuating 1,129 civilians from Afghanistan.
