Britain intends to withdraw troops from Afghanistan after the United States

The British authorities intend to withdraw almost the entire military contingent from Afghanistan, The Times writes, citing sources.

It is noted that this decision was made shortly after the day before the United States announced the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan in time for September 11 of this year.

There are currently 750 British Army soldiers in Afghanistan. According to the publication, in the event of the departure of American soldiers from the country, the British will be difficult to stay there because now they rely on the bases and infrastructure of the Americans.

The issue of transferring control of the academy, where the British trained local military personnel, to the Afghan government, is also being considered.

Before that, Washington planned to withdraw its military units before May 1. US President Joe Biden said it would be difficult to meet the deadline set by the agreement and withdraw troops from Afghanistan by the beginning of the last spring month. He explained this for “tactical reasons.” At the same time, the American leader said that he does not intend to leave troops in the Islamic Republic for a long time.
