Washington has declared its readiness to maintain a high level of support for Kabul.
The United States will again launch airstrikes in support of the armed forces of Afghanistan if the militants of the radical Taliban movement continue the offensive they have been waging since the beginning of May, the head of US military operations in this country has warned. This was reported on Sunday by Agence France-Presse.
“In recent days, the United States has stepped up its airstrikes in support of Afghan forces, and we are ready to maintain this high level of support in the coming days if the Taliban continue their attacks,” said General Kenneth McKenzie, head of the US Central Command, who is in Kabul.
The security situation in Afghanistan deteriorated significantly in April this year after the statement of US President Joe Biden about the completion of the operation of American forces in the republic. The security situation in the country is deteriorating because the Taliban militants are increasing the pace of their offensive in some directions. Meanwhile, on July 20, Acting Afghan Defense Minister Bismillah Mohammadi said that the Afghan Armed Forces had achieved a turning point in their favor in the war with the Taliban.
