As the Afghan crisis escalates and the Taliban are more likely to fall to the Taliban than ever before, in the latest case, US President Joe Biden reiterated his decision to withdraw US troops. Afghanistan has defended itself, saying it has no regrets.
“Now the Afghan military has to fight for itself, and the Afghan government has more than 300,000 troops, more than “It’s a Taliban fighter.” He reiterated his decision to withdraw US troops from Afghanistan, saying that defeating the Taliban needed to unite the collective views of Afghan politicians and that the two sides would stand side by side against the Taliban.
Biden added that Afghanistan has a new defense minister, who called acting defense minister Bismillah Mohammadi a “serious fighter,” adding that there was still room for change in Afghanistan’s war situation and the defeat of the Taliban. Biden speaks of his credibility with the Secretary of Defense, while the government has, in the latest case, made a series of changes to critical structures in the system. Hebatullah Alizi has been appointed as the Chief of Staff of the Army and General Seyyed Sami Sadat as the Commander of the Special Operations Corps.
The president stressed the unity of Afghans to protect their country and said the United States would continue its commitment to supporting the Afghan military and providing weapons. Meanwhile, Taliban attacks on provincial capitals have increased. The Taliban has reportedly claimed control of seven provincial centers, and the Taliban are still in the lead.
At the same time, President Ashraf Ghani went to Balkh province on Wednesday (8/10/2021) to review the general situation in the northern part of the country. In a meeting with several political and jihadi figures in Balkh, he discussed equipping, strengthening, and mobilizing popular uprisings under the umbrella of the security and defense forces and seeking the recapture of areas for figures such as Atta Mohammad Noor, Marshal Abdul Rashid Dostum. Haji Mohammad Mohaqeq and Juma Khan Hamdard have been assigned special duties.
