Withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan will not be rushed, says US

Washington: US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin has said that the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan will not be rushed.

Speaking at the NATO summit, US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin said that the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan would not be completed in a hurry, adding that the peace agreement between the United States and the Taliban was being closely monitored. And it is being ensured that the parties accept all the terms of the agreement.

The Secretary of Defense reassured all allies about the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan and said that the United States would not withdraw its troops from Afghanistan without any order or haste.

Last year, the Taliban and US President Donald Trump signed a peace agreement under which the United States withdrew all foreign troops by May 2021, but the Biden administration accused the Taliban of not abiding by the terms of the peace agreement. He said the agreement would be reviewed.
