Kabul: The Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul will be ready for international flight services in the next three days, said a media report citing Taliban officials and technical teams on Thursday

As per the Khaama News report, the technical teams from Qatar and Turkey are working alongside Afghan engineers to help with the repair works at the airport.

"The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan asked Qatar and Turkey to send their experts and help them in repairing the airport which was made ready for domestic flights in three days but international flights are yet to take off and land from the airport," said the report.

"Big screens, computers, scanners, and other electronics have been donated by Qatar and UAE and the technical teams are now busy installing them in terminals," the report added.
