Turkey and Qatar have agreed to jointly operate Kabul Hamid Karzai International Airport in Afghanistan, diplomatic sources told Anadolu Agency on Thursday.

Following talks between committees from both countries, a memorandum of understanding was signed between Turkish and Qatari companies on the operation of the airport in cooperation on an equal partnership basis, sources told Anadolu Agency.

According to sources, the memorandum was signed during Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoγlu’s visit to Doha for the seventh meeting of the Turkey-Qatar High Strategic Committee.

A joint committee of Turkish and Qatari officials will visit the Afghan capital, Kabul, to discuss the agreement with the interim government, as well as the demands and expectations of the Afghan side.

Flights were suspended at Afghanistan’s main international airport in Kabul after the Taliban seized power in August and US troops destroyed equipment and radar systems at the facility before leaving the country.
