 The Taliban in Afghanistan reiterated their adherence to the US Tajikistan agreement to reduce US withdrawal concerns


Afghanistans Taliban reiterated on February 19 that they abide by the agreement reached with the United States, especially to ensure that the United States and other western countries will not be attacked from Afghanistan, so as to reduce the concerns of the United States about withdrawing troops.

Kenneth McKenzie, commander of the US central command, said at a forum hosted by the Aspen Institute on the 18th that according to the agreement reached with the Taliban, the US side has reduced its troops in Afghanistan to about 8600. He urged the Taliban to ensure that conditions are met for the complete withdrawal of U.S. troops next year, that is, the U.S. homeland will not be attacked from Afghanistan.

Mackenzie said that the Taliban and the extremist organization Islamic state are not friends, but the United States needs to see the Talibans actions rather than words against al Qaeda. So we pay close attention to what the Taliban are doing and how they are involved in these negotiations as they move forward.

The Taliban reiterated their adherence to the agreement on the 19th, promising that the United States and other western countries will not be threatened from Afghanistan. Our country will not be used against anyone, the rebel spokesman, zabiula mujahid, told AFP. They should not be worried.

The United States and the Taliban signed an agreement in Doha, the capital of Qatar, on February 29. The United States has promised to gradually reduce the size of the U.S. military in Afghanistan and promote the release of detainees by the Afghan government and the Taliban. The Taliban promised not to allow its members and other organizations such as Al Qaeda to use Afghan territory to threaten the security of the United States and its allies.

An independent observer of the United Nations recently submitted a report to the United Nations Security Council, believing that the Taliban and Al Qaeda are still closely related and regularly consult Al Qaeda during negotiations with the United States.

The Afghan government has always believed that the Taliban provide a platform for organizations such as Islamic state and Al Qaeda to launch attacks in Afghanistan. (Bao Xuelin) [Xinhua News Agency micro feature
