Taliban demands US to keep promise to withdraw troops from Afghanistan / Article / LSM.lv


Afghan Taliban insurgents categorically oppose the postponement of the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan. Taliban spokesman Zabihulla Mujahideen said this.

Under former US President Donald Trump, he promised to withdraw troops from Afghanistan by May 1 this year. However, the administration of the new President Joe Biden and NATO believe that it may be premature.

The Taliban say that if the agreement is violated, there will be no other way than war. However, they will only decide on the next steps in May, when US and Allied troops must have left Afghanistan.

In February 2020, US and Taliban representatives signed a peace agreement in Qatar. According to them, the Taliban should stop attacks on US forces, drastically reduce violence and enter into dialogue with the Afghan government. For its part, the United States undertook to reduce its armed contingent in Afghanistan first, as well as to withdraw troops from Afghanistan within 14 months, together with its allies. But now NATO is considering postponing the move, fearing that the Taliban could seize power in the event of a premature departure of NATO forces, and that the violence in Afghanistan continues.

CONTEXT:

Between 1996 and 2001, when the Taliban came to power in Afghanistan, the country had Sharia law in place, such as banning women from education, employment and politics. The accused of theft, on the other hand, were punished by cutting off their hands.

The Taliban regime was overthrown in 2001 when a US-led international coalition invaded Afghanistan. Since then, the Taliban have regularly attacked Afghan and foreign soldiers, but the civilian population has suffered the most.

Despite peace talks, violence has increased in Afghanistan.

Since the September 11, 2001 invasion of Afghanistan, Americans have spent more than $ 1 trillion on fighting and reconstruction in Afghanistan. More than 2,000 US troops have been killed, as well as tens of thousands of Afghan troops, Taliban fighters and Afghan civilians.
