NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg thanked Azerbaijan for its vital role in securing the Kabul airport, according to the Alliance’s website.

Around 800 NATO civilian personnel have worked to keep the airport open. Providing air traffic control, fuel, and communications. I pay tribute to them as they work in very difficult circumstances,” Stoltenberg said during a press conference following the extraordinary meeting of NATO Ministers of Foreign Affairs.
"I also thank the military forces of NATO Allies, in particular Turkey, the United States, and the United Kingdom, and our partner Azerbaijan, for their vital role in securing the airport,” he added.
