Taliban will allow 200 Americans and other civilians to leave Afghanistan, according to a US official.

According to a US official, Taliban authorities have agreed to let 200 American civilians and third-country citizens who remained in Afghanistan following the end of the US evacuation operation to depart on charter planes from Kabul airport.

According to the person, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to Reuters, the Taliban were urged to accept the exit of US Special Representative Zalmay Khalilzad.

The departures were expected on Thursday. The official could not say whether these Americans and third country nationals were among people stranded for days in Mazar-i-Sharif because their private charters have not been allowed to depart.
