The United States has thanked Ukraine for helping to evacuate people from Afghanistan.

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken wrote about this in Twitter, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

“It was a pleasure to join President of the U.S. (Joe Biden’s) meeting with Ukrainian President (Volodymyr) Zelenskyy. The U.S.-Ukrainian partnership is stronger than ever and we're committed to Ukraine’s bright and prosperous future. I commend Ukraine for its assistance helping evacuate those at-risk in Afghanistan," Blinken wrote.

He made it clear that he took part in a meeting between President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and U.S. President Joe Biden in Washington.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, on September 1, Zelenskyy and Biden held a meeting in Washington, which lasted just over two hours.

It took place first in an expanded format, later tete-a-tete.

Since the beginning of the evacuation from Afghanistan, Ukraine has taken out more than 700 citizens and intends to continue the evacuation after August 31.
