In a press release published by Pakistani embassy based in Kabul, the embassy has said that all the four thousand Pakistani citizens stranded in Kabul will be repatriated back to Pakistan through Torkham crossing.
The statement further reads that, in accordance with prime Minister Imran Khan’s direction regarding helping Pakistanis abroad, the embassy has made effective arrangements to send the citizens back after Saudi Arabia suspended flights from several countries among them Afghanistan.
As per the press release, Pakistani embassy has provided its citizens in Kabul with decent place for temporary stay, food and cash to help them get to Torkham dry port.
On the other hand, Kabul based Pakistani ambassador Mansoor Ahmad Khan has also released certain telephone numbers available for the stranded Pakistani citizens to call them in case of emergency or any trouble.
Hundreds of Pakistani citizens had come into Kabul to get to Saudi Arabia after the country suspended flights from Pakistan owing to surge in corona virus positive cases.
The Gulf nation too suspended flights from Afghanistan after rapid rise in cases of corona virus. Nearly four thousand Pakistanis waiting for Saudi Arabia flights now will return to Pakistan.
