Joe Biden Set to Withdraw US Troops from Afghanistan By September 11


resident Joe Biden has announced a new deadline for the return of American troops to Washington. US officials said that 2500 troops present in Afghanistan would now be withdrawn by 11 September 2021. This year is also the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center. Due to this attack, the US targeted the Taliban in Afghanistan. Earlier, the Trump administration had set 1 May 2021 as the last date for the withdrawal of US troops during negotiations with the Taliban.

On the other hand, the Taliban has announced that it will not participate in any peace talks with Afghanistan until the withdrawal of US troops. For peace in Afghanistan, the Taliban and Afghanistan held several rounds of talks in Doha, the capital of Qatar, although it did not yield any results. Now Turkey has announced that it will act as an intermediary between the Taliban and the government to make peace in Afghanistan.

White House said that President Joe Biden will announce his decision publicly on Wednesday. A senior Biden administration official said that the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan will begin from May 1, while we are planning to end it by September 11.

Afghan President Ashraf Ghani bluntly said that peace in Afghanistan does not mean a political deal to share power. He said that it is to fulfil the wishes of the people who want to end violence and bloodshed in a war-torn country. Everyone wants to see violence end in the country. No matter how much the enemy tries to harm the country, Afghanistan will stand back.

If a peace deal is reached between Afghanistan and the Taliban, it could harm India. According to experts, if the Taliban is strong in Afghanistan, it will be a matter of concern for India. The Taliban is traditionally close to the Pakistani intelligence agency ISI. In such a situation, if the Taliban comes to power or is strong, it can harm India's interests at the behest of Pakistan. India has invested billions of dollars to develop Afghanistan. According to the report, India has given more than $ 3 billion in aid to Afghanistan so far.
