In Afghanistan, Taliban co-founder Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar has returned to the country from Qatar.

Meanwhile, the US has said that over one thousand Americans have been evacuated from Afghanistan on 13 US military flights yesterday.

In addition to this, nearly 2,000 Afghan nationals had also been relocated to the US.

Meanwhile, the US State Department has reportedly issued a notice to American nationals waiting to be evacuated from Afghanistan to reach Kabul airport.

In a related development, the United Kingdom Government has promised that it will allow thousands of Afghan refugees to settle in the country.
