US Secretary of State Antony Blinken has urged the Taliban to allow charter flights to depart from Afghanistan as planes carrying Americans and vulnerable Afghans reportedly have been stranded at Mazar-i-Sharif International Airport.

During a press conference with German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas in Germany, he denied that the Taliban have barred Americans to fly out from Mazar-e-Sharif International Airport, however, he said that they are not permitting the charter flights to depart as some people lacked valid documents.
