Officials on Sunday said Afghan police at Kabul airport have returned to work, manning checkpoints alongside Taliban security for the first time since the Islamists seized power.
When the Taliban swept into Kabul on August 15 ousting the government, police abandoned their posts, fearful of what the Islamists would do.
Two police officers said they returned to work on Saturday after receiving calls from Taliban commanders.
On Sunday, border police members were deployed at several checkpoints outside the main buildings of the airport, including the domestic terminal.
The Taliban say they have granted a general amnesty to everyone who worked for the former government including the army, police and other security branches.
Officials say they want to integrate the opposing forces, but have not spelled out how this will happen or how they will sustain a security apparatus made up of around 600,000 people.
The Taliban have been scrambling to get the capital’s airport operating again with Qatari technical assistance.
The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has set up an air bridge to deliver tons of aid to Afghanistan, with aircraft bringing in hundreds of tonnes of medical and food supplies.
An airport employee who handles security for a private company also confirmed that the border police had been deployed around the airport since Saturday.
Qatar Airways have operated charter flights out of Kabul recently, carrying mostly foreigners and Afghans who missed being taken out during the evacuation.
An Afghan airline resumed domestic flights last week, while Pakistan International Airlines is expected to begin flights from Islamabad to Kabul in coming days.
