Taliban have invited border police of the previous Afghan government to return to their jobs in Kabul International Airport to work alongside them.

On Sunday, September 12 a number of the former border police were seen on their jobs in the airport alongside armed members of the Taliban.

Although the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan has invited some civil servants across Afghanistan including those in customs, this is the first time that military officials of the former government are returning to jobs.

Traffic personnel, municipality staff, and school teachers are the only government employees who have not been bothered since the Taliban takeover.

Earlier, the ministry of finance had called on the staff of all customs to return to jobs lest they will be considered absent and will not be gotten paid.

In the meantime, officials of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan said that the finance ministry is working to pay the salaries of the staff of some ministries.

People are asking the Taliban to call on the former government employees to run their jobs as they were fully familiar with the governance and the digitalized system.
