The US President, Joe Biden, has announced that the US troops will not go to war with the Afghan Taliban.
Disclosing this in a tweet, Wednesday, night, Biden said:
“we went to Afghanistan because of the horrific attacks on 9/11 that happened 20 years ago. That cannot explain why we should remain there in 2021. Rather than return to war with the Taliban, we have to focus on the challenges of the future.”
The president’s announcement came hours after the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan issued a threat to all foreign forces to withdraw their troops from Afghanistan.
In a statement issued by the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan on Wednesday, the spokesman, Zabihullah Mujahid, said:
“The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan seeks the withdrawal of all foreign forces from our homeland on the date specified in the Doha Agreement.
“If the agreement is adhered to, a pathway to addressing the remaining issues will also be found.
“If the agreement is breached and foreign forces fail to exit our country on the specified date, problems will certainly be compounded and those whom failed to comply with the agreement will be held liable.”
