 Not only Syria! US Media: About 7,000 US troops will be withdrawn from Afghanistan


Overseas Network, Dec. 21, according to the New York Times, two U.S. military officials said the Trump administration would withdraw about 7,000 soldiers from Afghanistan in the coming months. The announcement came after the White House announced its withdrawal from Syria.

According to reports, the number of about 7,000 U.S. soldiers is about half of the current number of U.S. troops stationed in Afghanistan, and there are about 14,000 U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan. An official revealed that the purpose of this partial withdrawal was to make Afghan troops rely more on themselves than on Western support. Earlier, US media reported that on Wednesday (19), an official of the US Department of Defense said that the Trump Administration had decided to withdraw all US troops from Syria immediately. Meanwhile, the White House confirmed in a statement that the US government had begun to return from Syria to the US army, but stressed that Syrias coalition efforts would continue. A senior U.S. government representative said pressure on Syria and Iran will continue after the withdrawal of U.S. troops. The withdrawal of troops caused quite a stir in the United States, and many Republicans and Democrats voiced their opinions one after another. Some Republicans called the withdrawal a mistake similar to the Obama administration and staying there is an insurance policy. Some Democrats praised it.
