“This is a peace mission. This is in support of peace and stability,” he [Afghan ambassador to Turkey Amir Mohammad Ramin] said, adding that Turkey’s extended mission at the airport “will continue to have the support of the Government of Afghanistan, as well as the support of the other NATO members, especially the U.S..”
Ankara has been running the military and logistic operations of the Kabul airport for six years as part of the NATO-led Resolute Support Mission.
“Turkey has been a very strong supporter of peace and stability in Afghanistan through NATO, but also bilaterally, economically, and politically. In terms of education, thousands of students come here and study,” he added.
