Gratitude to Finland for Facilitating the Transit of U.S. Citizens and Evacuees from Afghanistan

The United States is grateful to Finland for its humanitarian efforts and its gracious offer to facilitate the safe transit of U.S. citizens and evacuees.  The United States greatly appreciates the Finnish government’s support; it is emblematic of our strong and enduring partnership.

We deeply appreciate the support and are proud to partner with Finland in our shared support of the Afghan people.

We have no higher priority than the safety and security of U.S. citizens overseas, including our military and diplomats serving in Afghanistan.  We thank our Finnish partners for their support in this effort.
