Stoltenberg unsure about Afghanistan’s future after troop withdrawal

According to the NATO Secretary-General, the decision to withdraw entails certain risks.

There is no guarantee that the Afghan government and its security forces will succeed or even survive after the last US and coalition military units leave the country, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said.

“We need to recognize the reality, which is that, of course, uncertainty is high,” Stoltenberg said at a virtual event before meetings at the Pentagon and the White House.

“The decision to withdraw comes with risks,” he added.

According to the US Central Command, which oversees US troops in the Middle East and South Asia, the withdrawal of US troops is almost half complete. It is planned that the last US military, civilian contractors and equipment will be withdrawn from Afghanistan no later than the beginning of September.
