Qatar says doing utmost to help safe passage of diplomats out of Afghanistan
Qatar said on Monday it was doing its utmost to help evacuate diplomats and foreign staff in international organisations seeking to leave Afghanistan.
Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister HE Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani, whose country has been playing a key role in trying to reach a political settlement in Afghanistan, told a news conference in the Jordanian capital that Doha was also seeking a peaceful transition after the withdrawal of US troops.
"There is international concern about the fast pace of developments and Qatar is doing its utmost to bring a peaceful transition, especially after the vacuum that happened," Al-Thani said.
Qatar was also working to ensure there would be a complete ceasefire across the country and that stability prevailed, he added.
