[Washington 29th Reuters]-US President Trump said the US troops will stay on the 29th, even after reaching a ceasefire agreement with the Afghan rebel army Taliban.
In an interview with FOX News Radio, President Trump stressed that “the US military needs to be maintained” in Afghanistan. “The US troops stationed will be significantly reduced, but their presence will always be maintained,” he said.
On that basis, he stated a policy to reduce the number of stationed troops to 8,600, and said, “I will make a decision after that”.
The US government and the Taliban are continuing peace talks, including the withdrawal of the US military stationed, and the Taliban spokesman said the day before that it was approaching the “final agreement”.
The chairman of the United States General Staff of Danford said yesterday that he would not use the word “withdrawal” at the moment and that it was “too early” to talk about the US military presence in anti-terrorism in Afghanistan. .
