Pakistan has been keeping a close eye on the situation in Afghanistan, said National Security Adviser Moeed Yusuf on Monday after the Taliban consolidated their hold over the country two decades later.

Addressing a press conference in Islamabad, The adviser said the situation in Afghanistan was better. “Pakistan is working to evacuate its citizens from Kabul,” he added.

For this purpose, a special cell has been set up at the interior ministry which will function 24 hours a day.

He urged embassies of other countries in Pakistan to get in touch with the cell.

Moeed said that so far, no country had made any statement against Pakistan. “This is our success.”

Even India is silent and no one has talked about Pakistan, he said, adding that “work on finding a scapegoat is still continuing.”

The adviser said that Kabul was captured by the Taliban much earlier than expected.

Moeed said that visa facilitation will be provided by Pakistan to the citizens of all countries trapped in Kabul.

“If anyone wants to get out, we will help,” Yusuf said.

He also said the World Bank and International Monetary Fund want to monitor Afghanistan from Pakistan.
