The evacuees included people who worked for Poland’s diplomatic mission and military contingent.

The plane took off from Navoi International Airport, Uzbekistan, with a stopover in Tbilisi, Georgia, where a group of employees of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) disembarked.

IMF director Kristalina Georgieva thanked Poland’s Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki for the country’s assistance in evacuating the organization’s personnel from Afghanistan.

Over 350 people have been airlifted out of Afghanistan to Poland so far, Polish deputy foreign minister Marcin Przydacz said on Sunday.

According to the Polish prime minister’s top aide, Michał Dworczyk, future evacuation flights will depend on the political situation in Kabul.

Over 18,000 people have been airlifted out of Afganistan since the Taliban took over the capital Kabul, NATO has announced.
