Washington will demonstrate "enduring" support for Afghanistan even after the U.S. withdraws its troops from the country later this year, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said during an unannounced visit to Kabul on Thursday. "The reason I'm here … is to demonstrate literally, by our presence, that we have an enduring and ongoing commitment to Afghanistan," Blinken said during a press conference at the U.S. Embassy in Kabul on April 15. "Even when our troops come home, our partnership with Afghanistan will continue," America's top diplomat vowed . The U.S. said Wednesday it plans to completely withdraw all 2,500 of its remaining troops from Afghanistan by September 11, 2021, and that it will begin the process on May 1. The administration of former U.S. President Donald Trump had scheduled the Afghan troop withdrawal to be completed by May 1, 2021, meaning the new withdrawal deadline proposed by U.S. President Joe Biden on Wednesday serves as an extension of the U.S. presence in Afghanistan by over four months. رئیس جمهور محمد اشرف غنی ظهر امروز با انتونی بلینکن وزیر امور خارجه ایالات متحدۀ امریکا که در راس یک هیات عالی رتبۀ آن کشور به کابل آمده بود، دیدار کرد. pic.twitter.com/7UrqM8yDcA — ارگ (@ARG_AFG)… Read full this story
