The United States has screened and processed people evacuated to these two major overseas sites and others after evacuating them from Afghanistan.
Stopping flights is a problem for the United States in part because many evacuees have already stayed at the Ramstein military base longer than the 10-day limit set by Germany to allow us the United States and the country as a transit site.
The US document viewed by the PA said the stop would have " a serious impact " "on the operations of the American base in Germany and would have a" negative effect "on the nearly 10,000 evacuees from Ramstein, many of whom weret been here for over 10 days and are getting more and more tired.
