The state-run Pakistan Airlines has resumed its special flights to Kabul, in order to evacuate Pakistanis and foreigners stranded in Afghanistan. Information Minister Fawad Chowdhury said in a tweet, that Pakistan Airlines will send two of its planes to the Afghan capital on Friday to evacuate 350 passengers.

Chaudhry added that the Pakistani Ministry of Interior is also facilitating the evacuation of Pakistanis and foreigners from Afghanistan through border crossings.

This latest development comes days after Pakistan Airlines suspended all flights to Kabul to protect passengers, crew, and aircraft after consulting the Afghan civil aviation authorities.

The Pakistani government has been trying to evacuate its citizens and foreigners by air and land since the Taliban took control of Kabul.

Pakistan issues visas on arrival to all diplomats, foreigners, and journalists who wish to leave Kabul due to security concerns.
