US Technical Delegation Due In Turkey To Discuss Afghanistan

Delegation expected to meet Turkish Defense Ministry officials to discuss keeping Afghanistan's Kabul airport operational.

A technical delegation from the US Department of Defense is expected to arrive in Turkey on Thursday to discuss progress on efforts to keep Afghanistan's Kabul Hamid Karzai International Airport operational.
According to the sources from Turkey's National Defense Ministry, the delegation is expected to meet with officials from the ministry and discuss the issue in detail.
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 operating Kabul's airport
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 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. -
