The Taliban will no longer allow evacuations of Afghans wishing to leave their country until the situation of those already evacuated abroad improves, their spokesman announced on Sunday.

The government has a responsibility to protect people, so [les évacuations d’Afghans] will be arrested until we are sure their lives are not in danger in the countries where they are being evacuated, Zabihullah Mujahid, spokesman for the Taliban regime, told a press conference.

More than 120,000 Afghans and dual nationals were evacuated until August 31 and the departure from Afghanistan of the last American soldiers, two weeks after the capture of Kabul by the Islamist fundamentalists.

Hundreds more were later allowed to leave the country by air, but the last official evacuation by air took place on December 1.

Occasional evacuations still take place by road via Pakistan.

Zabihullah Mujahid said the Taliban had received reports of thousands of Afghans living in very poor conditions in Qatar and Turkey.
