The government has decided to recall Sri Lankans employed in Kabul, the Capital of Afghanistan, amidst the present conflict.
A spokesperson of the Foreign Ministry said around 50 Sri Lankans are employed in Kabul at present.
Meanwhile Afghan media reports, Taliban insurgents entered Kabul.
The Taliban have moved closer to retaking full control of Afghanistan, with the capital Kabul now the only major city left in government hands.
The rapid collapse of government forces has left President Ashraf Ghani under growing pressure to resign.
He appears to face a stark choice between surrender or a fight to hold the capital.
Meanwhile, the US has begun evacuating members of staff from its embassy in Kabul.
