Spanish sites to temporarily hold US collaborators in Afghanistan – News

MADRID, Aug 22, 2021 (AFP) – The United States on Sunday said it would use its bases in Moran and Rota Spain to temporarily recruit its collaborators to be expelled from Afghanistan.

In a phone call, the Spanish government stated that US President Joe Biden and Spaniard Pedro Sanchez had “temporarily agreed to allow US cooperation to relocate Afghanistan using the Rota and Moron sites”.

The U.S. military has been stationed at these two military bases in the south of the country since the middle of the last century.

In the early hours of Saturday to Sunday, a third return flight sent by Spain landed at the Torrejan de Ardos military base with 46 crew from Spain and 64 crew from the United States.

This Sunday, two other planes departed from Kabul for Spain and were grounded in Dubai, leaving 177 evacuees, 67 of them U.S. collaborators.

The site in Torrejón de Ardoz, near Madrid, has become a gateway for EU corporate collaborators to be expelled from Afghanistan.
