Moldova aligned itself with the joint declaration of the international community backed by more than 70 countries, calling for Afghans and foreign nationals wishing to leave Afghanistan to be allowed to leave and for airports and border crossings to remain open.

The Moldovan Ministry of Foreign Affairs mentions that no repatriation requests were received from Moldovan citizens.

“The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is closely monitoring the security situation in Afghanistan. If necessary, the ministry will be fully involved in the process of evacuating Moldovan citizens by ensuring coordinated communication through diplomatic channels with partner countries that have a diplomatic representation in Kabul. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs diplomats are already in contact with counterparts from the foreign ministries of Romania and Ukraine in order to intervene promptly, in case of need, in order to assist our compatriots,” said the representatives of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The Moldovan Civil Aviation Authority issued a press release on Monday, August 16, stating that only one Moldovan aircraft is on the territory of Afghanistan, and among the crew members are also citizens of Moldova.

A joint statement, backed by more than 70 countries, calls for Afghans and foreign nationals wishing to leave Afghanistan to be allowed to leave and for airports and border crossings to remain open.
