US Delegation To Travel To Turkey To Discuss Kabul Airport Security

Visit will take place later this week, says US defense official.

A US delegation of Pentagon and State Department officials will be in Turkey to discuss security at the Kabul airport in Afghanistan, according to a defense official Wednesday.
The visit will take place later this week, said the official who spoke on condition of anonymity.
A day earlier, sources from Turkey's National Defense Ministry said the delegation will discuss progress on efforts to keep Afghanistan's Kabul Hamid Karzai International Airport operational.
The situation in Afghanistan has gained importance in recent weeks after US President Joe Biden announced that all American forces would withdraw from the war-torn country by Sept. 11, with NATO allies to follow suit.
Biden and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan discussed the issue at a recent NATO leaders summit in Brussels.
Ankara has been running the military and logistic operations of the Kabul airport for six years as part of the NATO-led Resolute Support Mission.
Turkey, whose forces in Afghanistan have always been comprised of noncombatant troops, is reported to have offered to guard the airport as questions remain on how security will be assured along major transport routes and at the airport, which is the main gateway to the capital, Kabul.
