The United States currently has 3,500 troops in Afghanistan.

Washington: President Joe Biden will provide details today on his plan to withdraw US troops from Afghanistan by September 11, White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki confirmed.

The Latin American Information Agency reports that it is the 20th anniversary of the attacks against the Twin Towers in New York and other North American sites, which led Washington to unleash what it called its war against terrorism.

According to statements by Psaki, issued the day before, Biden will make comments at the executive mansion about the schedule to achieve the aforementioned objective in close collaboration with allies and partners of the United States.

Before the spokeswoman’s affirmations, a senior US official announced in a telephone press conference the president’s intention, whose date extends that of May 1 with which Donald Trump, Biden’s predecessor, pledged to remove the uniformed men from Afghanistan.

This source requested anonymity and stated that the United States will end the war in that Asian country, the longest in its history, almost 20 years after starting participation in that warfare.

He also specified that no conditions will be imposed on the Afghan government or the Taliban for the withdrawal.

Biden concluded that a conditions-based approach, used for the past two decades, is a recipe for staying in Afghanistan forever, he argued.

Official data indicate that the United States currently has 3,500 troops in Afghanistan, and the criticized North Atlantic Treaty Organization and Washington partners support another 7,000 troops.

Through the coordination of all parties, the complete withdrawal of the military will be achieved within the same deadline set by Biden, said the official.
