Foreign Minister Haavisto: Finns will try to be taken out of Afghanistan today

Minister of Foreign Affairs Pekka Haavisto (Greens) in an interview with Yle this morning said that the Finns in Afghanistan will try to be transported to Finland today.

Local residents who worked for the Finns also want to be taken to a safe place today or tomorrow at the latest.

According to Haavisto, chaos reigns at the Kabul airport. Therefore, it depends on the organization of the airport’s work when the Finns and the Afghans who worked for them can be evacuated.

Haavisto said that the Finnish diplomats are safe.
