Geneva: The Kabul airport will be unavailable for humanitarian supplies for at least a week following the terrorist attacks, and international organizations are considering the possibility of using the international airport in Mazar-i-Sharif instead, World Health Organization (WHO) Regional Emergency Director Rick Brennan said on Friday.
“Due to security issues and other problems it won`t be an option. At least for a week,” Brennan said at a briefing.
The Mazar-i-Sharif airport is an alternative that is currently under consideration, the WHO official added.
According to UN estimates, there are currently about 100 foreign and 3,000 local staff in Afghanistan.
