New Delhi: The Taliban government of Afghanistan has written to the Directorate General of Civil Aviation of India, inviting it to resume commercial flights between the two countries.
The Civil Aviation ministry has received a letter from the Taliban and is reviewing it.
The Taliban had announced on Sunday that the Kabul international airport was fully operational for domestic and international flights. It had expressed hope that all airlines that had previously flown to Kabul would resume their flights.
In a tweet from the ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Taliban had said, “As the problems at Kabul International Airport have been resolved and the airport is fully operational for domestic and international flights, the IEA assures all airlines of its full cooperation and expects all airlines and countries that had previously flown to Kabul to resume their flights as before. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs once again assures full cooperation on its part.”
As part of its efforts to reach out to the international community, the Taliban invited India, too, to resume its flights.
India’s last flight from Kabul was on August 15.
An international flight from Pakistan became the first one to fly in and out of the Kabul airport earlier this month.
