 The Polish PM tweeted "On Armed Forces Day we do not forget our allies and especially those in greatest need".

 Earlier on Sunday, Poland's Deputy Foreign Minister Paweł Jabłoński assured that the ministry was "in contact" with Polish citizens in Afghanistan, and that actions were being taken "together with our NATO and EU partners" also to help persons who had cooperated with the Polish Military Contingent or the EU delegation.

 He added that the Foreign Ministry was very much concerned regarding the developments in Afghanistan. On Sunday, media reported that Afghanistan's Taliban insurgents had entered Kabul and that Afghan President Ashraf Ghani had left the country.

 Appeals for help to Afghan nationals who in the past had worked for the Polish Embassy in Kabul, the Polish Military Contingent or NGOs on Sunday came from Poland's former Ambassador to Afghanistan Piotr Łukasiewicz, former Defence chiefs Tomasz Siemoniak and Bogdan Klich, former Foreign Minister Radosław Sikorski and founder of Polish Humanitarian Action, currently Civic Platform MEP Janina Ochojska.

 The Polish Embassy in Kabul closed, by decision of Radosław Sikorski, at the end of 2014 (since then affairs were handled by the Embassy in New Delhi, India).

 Soldiers from the last Polish Military Contingent in Afghanistan serving within the Resolute Support mission returned home on June 30. Polish troops had served in Afghanistan for 20 years.
