Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavushoglu and U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken discussed the latest developments in Afghanistan in a phone call on Saturday, Trend reports citing Daily Sabah.

“Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu and I spoke again today about our continuing joint efforts to ensure a safe and orderly evacuation from Afghanistan,” Blinken said.

“Turkey is an important NATO Ally and we're grateful for its partnership,” he added.


In a dramatic turn of events that brought an effective end to the 20-year-old war, the Afghan military collapsed in the face of the Taliban's lightning offensive and so did its government in Kabul under former President Ashraf Ghani, who fled the country.
