#Kabul: The Taliban are unlikely to form a government until all US troops have withdrawn from Afghanistan. An Afghan official involved in talks with the Taliban reported the news The United States has said it will keep troops in Afghanistan until August 31
According to the Associated Press, the Afghan official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Anas Haqqani, the Taliban’s main mediator, had given the indication to former government officials. The Haqqanis say they will not be able to do anything until US troops are withdrawn from Afghanistan under their agreement with the United States. Haqqani, however, did not specify whether doing nothing would be limited to political action.
After Haqqani’s claim, the question is, will the Taliban show their true colors after August 31? Questions have also been raised about whether they will include officials working under the previous government in the new government. On top of that, the Taliban have not yet clarified what the future holds for the Afghan National Security Forces It is unclear who will replace the Afghan military with the Taliban.
A U.S. military official says a total of 5,200 troops are still stationed in Afghanistan. The U.S. military is currently assisting in the rescue of U.S. citizens from Afghanistan as well as citizens of other countries They are even helping the Afghans
Many are surprised that the Taliban have taken over the country so quickly before the withdrawal of US and other troops from Afghanistan. Many parts of Afghanistan now have virtually no administration
However, US President Joe Biden has made it clear that despite the August 31 withdrawal deadline, US troops will remain in Afghanistan until all US citizens have been withdrawn. The Joe Biden administration is now focusing on the safe rescue of the Americans from Afghanistan According to the survey, the decision to withdraw troops from Afghanistan during President Biden’s tenure has been the most popular since he came to power. However, this issue did not get that much importance in the US elections However, Biden’s handling of the troop withdrawal has drawn criticism from some Democrats.
