Statement by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs regarding the safe arrival in Greece of two Greek citizens evacuated from Afghanistan

Upon relevant instructions from the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Nikos Dendias, and following continuous consultations between the competent Services of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Ministries of other countries, two more Greek citizens working in Afghanistan returned safely to Greece. The first citizen arrived on Saturday night (21/08) from London where he had been transferred after a successful U.K. evacuation operation from Afghanistan and the second one arrived today from Doha where he had been transferred after a similar U.S. evacuation operation.

In both cases, the Greek authorities were in constant contact with the two citizens and our Embassies in London and Doha provided them with all possible assistance.
