On Sunday, a tweet by the US Embassy in Kabul confirmed that the US Embassy in Kabul “is open and will remain open.”
The statement noted that there is no plan to close the US embassy in Afghanistan. However, based on reports on Saturday, the Embassy will be closed and US personnel, along with thousands of other Americans in the country, will leave Afghanistan.
The US Embassy said that claims that US officials stepped up work on a possible evacuation of the US Embassy in Kabul are false and rejected the emergency evacuation plan.
In a statement, the US embassy said: “The US Embassy in Kabul is open and will remain open. As directed by President Joe Biden, we will continue to have a robust diplomatic presence in Kabul to carry out the range of work we do with the government and people of Afghanistan. We have no plans to close the Embassy.
Wall Street Journal had reported on Friday that US government plans for emergency evacuation from the Kabul based embassy after the last soldiers in Bagram airbase left Afghanistan for US.
