US embassy in its latest alert asked its nationals to leave Afghanistan urgently using commercial flights in hand due to the worsening security situation of the war-stricken country.

The statement released in this regard stated the reduced staffing of the embassy which cannot assist even in the Afghan capital, Kabul.

It comes only one day after the British embassy in Kabul released a similar alert asking its nationals to leave Afghanistan immediately using commercial means.

The press release of the US embassy suggests repatriation loans for US nationals who cannot afford commercial flights to the United States. It urges US citizens to contact for the afore-mentioned cause.

Kabul-based US embassy reminded its citizens of the alert given by the state department on April 27 this year. Based on the alert, the US staff in the Kabul embassy was asked to leave Afghanistan due to crimes, kidnapping, Covid-19,  armed conflict, terrorism, and civil unrest.

“US citizens in Afghanistan are advised to leave Afghanistan as soon as possible using commercial flights and to not rely on US government flights.” Reads the statement.

It comes as the US government has repeatedly acknowledged that its diplomatic mission in Afghanistan will remain functional even beyond full withdrawal.

US remaining troops which amount to roundabout 650 are due to leave Afghanistan by September.
