Reuters is quoting US State Department officials as saying that Washington is in the process of evacuating dozens of US citizens and their families from Afghanistan.
US State Department spokesman Ned Price told the media on Tuesday that the United States is currently working with dozens of American citizens and their families who have declared themselves ready to leave and have the necessary travel documents.
The report does not provide further details on the departure of these citizens from Afghanistan.
Also, a significant number of Afghans eligible to immigrate to the United States have not yet been able to leave Afghanistan.
Earlier, it was reported that flights had been suspended due to Taliban opposition.
The Biden administration is under pressure not to make serious efforts to evacuate eligible American and Afghan citizens.
After the fall of Kabul to the Taliban, the US government began an emergency evacuation process that lasted for 17 days.
The Biden government has since expelled a significant number of Afghans from Afghanistan under the “Welcome to Allies” program.
