UN again relocates staff from Afghanistan

United Nations, Aug 23: The United Nations on Sunday flew 120 persons from Kabul to Almaty, Kazakhstan, in addition to the relocation of 100 UN staff members on Wednesday.

Passengers included UN personnel and members of several nongovernmental organizations that serve as implementing partners of the UN in Afghanistan, said Stephane Dujarric, spokesperson for UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.

Part of the UN personnel who left Kabul on Sunday will continue to work remotely in Almaty, he said.

The UN in Afghanistan is currently focused on the safety of the thousands of its personnel and partners who remain on the ground, as well as the delivery of critical humanitarian and other assistance to millions of Afghans in need, Dujarric said.
