The Pentagon has begun to withdraw from the territory of Afghanistan military units engaged in ensuring the safety of evacuation from the Kabul airport. This was reported by the Fox TV channel.
Over the past few days, the United States has deployed about 6.5 thousand troops to Kabul. Most of the military personnel were transferred to the airport of the Afghan capital from the Middle Eastern states, where the US military bases are located.
The soldiers and officers of the US army were tasked with ensuring the safety of the evacuation of US and NATO military and civilian personnel, as well as Afghan refugees.
At the same time, US President Joe Biden said earlier that he was not going to back down from his plan to withdraw US troops from Afghanistan by August 31, 2021. There is also an agreement on the timing of the withdrawal of troops with the Taliban (the Taliban movement is banned in the Russian Federation as a terrorist organization). The militants of the movement promised the American side that they would perceive as an occupation attempts to delay the withdrawal of troops after August 31, and then there will be corresponding consequences.
