Turkey is ready to take over the management of the Kabul airport if the United States provides the necessary support.
Axar.az reports citing foreign media that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Tuesday during his visit to the self-proclaimed Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus.
"A new era is beginning in Afghanistan and in the region, with Turkey standing along with the United States and NATO. The United States has decided to withdraw its troops from Afghanistan, and it wants Kabul’s airport to continue to operate. We view that in a positive light, and, of course, we have several conditions for the United States both in diplomatic relations and in logistics," he stressed in an interview with the TRT TV channel. "If the necessary support is provided to us, we will think about taking over the management of the Kabul airport."
Erdogan also announced plans to discuss the situation in Afghanistan with the Taliban radical group (outlawed in Russia).
