Several dozens French nationals still in Afghanistan: Foreign Minister Le Drian

Doha, Sep 13 (UNI/Sputnik) Dozens of French citizens remain in Afghanistan two weeks after the end of the evacuation mission, French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said on Monday.
About 200 of the country's nationals were taken out from the Kabul airport during the airlift operation in the second half of August. A Qatar Airways flight via Doha has taken 47 French passengers from Kabul earlier in the day.
"We appreciate Qatar's efforts in the evacuation of French citizens from Afghanistan. No more than a few dozen French citizens remain in Afghanistan after about 200 [French] people have already left this country," Le Drian told a press conference in Doha, where he arrived on Sunday on a working visit.
