OTTAWA: The Canadian mission in Afghanistan has ended and most Canadian military personnel left the airport about eight hours ago, according to CBC Thursday morning.

Acting Chief of Canadian Defense Staff Wayne Eyre said a small contingent has stayed behind to support allies, adding that Canada has helped evacuate more than 3,700 people from Kabul.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced on Tuesday that Canada will keep its military personnel in Afghanistan despite U.S. President Joe Biden's commitment for an Aug. 31 American military deadline in the country.

The country will continue to put pressure on Taliban to allow people to leave Afghanistan, Trudeau said.

Trudeau's remarks came after the Tuesday virtual summit of G7 leaders who met to discuss whether an extension of the American military commitment to Afghanistan is needed for evacuating all foreign nationals and vulnerable Afghans who helped the Americans and the NATO allies.
