Afghanistan: Kabul airlift continues as world sizes up Taliban | DW News

Two planes landed at Frankfurt Airport early Thursday with evacuees from the Afghan capital, Kabul.

Some 500 people were on board the two chartered planes that were operated by Lufthansa and Uzbekistan Airways.

The two aircraft had taken off from the Uzbek capital Tashkent, where the German army has established an evacuation hub.

The US calls on the Taliban to allow Afghans to reach evacuation flights, accusing the Islamist group of reneging on a pledge to let those who want to leave Afghanistan to do so.

US President Joe Biden suggested that American troops could stay on past the initial full withdrawal deadline of August 31.

Biden said it would be to ensure that all Americans and Afghan staff could be taken out of the country safely.

  1. The best solution for Afghan people now is they do not need to go to another country, if they do a peace treaty, like relocate Taliban supporters on one side and anti-Taliban on another side and keep a borderline, so that both sides can focus on their development, the international community should help and think over this

  2. Everything was planned.unfortunately we have a clown in the White House.also a clown as a general Miller.he was more interested in gender-issues in the military as a general.Biden sold Afghanistan to China.Afghanistan is number 1 in the world for lithium,which is needed for batteries of so „make me feel good cars“electro cars.simple as that.and taliban knows that.don’tundermined the taliban.that is also the reason why China,turkey,and Russia are still there.guys america(Neto)Lost.after those pictures which country leaders gona trust us?but hey!america you get what you vote for.

  3. Social media mocking America’s messy withdrawal from Afghanistan
    said, “If you ever feel useless … Just remember that the United States
    took four presidents, thousands of lives, trillions of dollars and 20 years …
    To replace Taliban with Taliban.”

  4. Is this not a replay from days long ago in Vietnam? Nothing was learned there or how quick tragédi is forgotten. I expected more even more from the Meat ball running our country today. He is just a talking head how sad. He has sat America back many years after many of our men and woman gave their all.

  5. Look what the Usa and their puppets have created, 2 Million suffer Malnutrition and 10 Million need Humanitarian Aid in Afghanistan, no wonder most people there prefer Taliban over US backed corrupt politicians like Ghani.

  6. I dont understand why they are protesting the Taliban now…why didn't they fight back before their takeover if they didn't want them to rule. They had all the tools to fight for their country, but they just handed everything over without a fight!

  7. Taliban are very dedicated folk, very sincere in what they do. They would be amazing evangelists. Those of us that are believers in Jesus, let's pray for them that they would turn to the truth, and start promoting the only True Living God of the Bible.
    Let's pray that they would have dreams, visions and visitations, that they would be healed in soul, and would spread Gods love, not sword to others in their land..

  8. The Taliban is enforcing mask restrictions for all women, to cover their faces, and are confiscating civilian owned firearms, if you’re found later without a mask or firearms you will be arrested.

  9. I may have to disagree, mass migration of Afghanis to other nations is not the solution. Rather the solution lies in getting rid of element causing chaos and mass migrations.
    Why cannot we think realistic than going in loops.

  10. Pls. Pray the rosary to free all countries from war, hunger, diseases, climate change, calamities, drugs, prostitution, abortion, divorce, corruption, vices, violence and all evil.pls pray for peace and joy in all families and home.,….

  11. America need to focus on the American people Biden should said I didnt promise the AFGHANISTAN people nothing. Bring back all the American people and troops and that it. Now Biden just ask for another 6.4 BILLION DOLLAR for the 150,000 AFGANISTAN so they can buy houses, cars, businesses. What do the American people get NOTHING just the bill that the poor people have to pay back because the RICH PEOPLE DON'T PAY TAXES.
