Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan seeks U.S. trust to hand him over guarding and running of Kabul- Hamid Karzai- Airport after the withdrawal of U.S. led NATO forces from Afghanistan.
Axar.az reports citing foreign media that Turkey would be the “only reliable” country left to stabilize Afghanistan after the US pulls out its troops, he said, indicating Washington could rely on its NATO ally.
His remarks come days after the Taliban’s announcement that all countries present as part of NATO allied in Afghanistan must exit based on the peace deal signed between the U.S. and insurgent group.
“America is preparing to leave Afghanistan soon and from the moment they leave, the only reliable country to maintain the process over there is obviously Turkey,” Erdogan told reporters at an Istanbul airport on Sunday before leaving for Brussels.
