US Chargé díAffaires Ross Wilson said Tuesday the American embassy in Kabul has not closed down and that reports to this effect were false.
In a message posted on Twitter, Wilson said: "Contrary to false reports, @USEmbassyKabul staff & I remain in #Kabul working hard to help 1000s of U.S. citizens and vulnerable Afghans & continuing engagement here."
"Our commitment to the Afghan people endures," he said.
This comes after US President Joe Biden said at a press briefing on Monday night that the embassy has been closed.
"We have safely shut down our embassy and transferred our diplomats.
"Our diplomatic presence is now consolidated at the airport as well," he said.
He also said that over the next few days, the US intends to transport out thousands of American citizens who have been living and working in Afghanistan.
"Weíll also continue to support the safe departure of civilian personnel - the civilian personnel of our Allies who are still serving in Afghanistan."
