On Friday, Joe Biden (President of America) is going to meet with Ashraf Ghani (President of Afghanistan) and Abdullah Abdullah (the chairman of Afghanistan’s High Council for National Reconciliation) at the White House to negotiate American troops’ withdrawal as violence increased between the Taliban and Afghan forces across the nation.
In a statement, the White House explained that Joe Biden (first in-person meeting) wants to make sure Ashraf Ghani and Abdullah Abdullah regarding American help for the Afghan public, including humanitarian, economic, and diplomatic support. Moreover, he will even reiterate his vow to make sure that the nation is never going to be a safe haven for extremist or terrorist groups.
Violence surged as troops pulled out
The White House described that the visit by Ghani and Abdullah is going to underline the enduring connection between American and Afghanistan as troops drawdown continues.
Around thirty districts have been apprehended by the Taliban since April when President Joe Biden had made a decision to withdraw troops ahead of 11 September to wind up the longest war of America after around twenty years of a skirmish.
The Taliban has boosted its influence throughout the country after America started pulling out the military on 1st May and seized some bases.
The tour would be useless – The Taliban
On the other side, the Taliban described that the tour would be useless. Zabihullah Mujahid (Taliban spokesman) explained that they (Ashraf Ghani and Abdullah Abdullah) will negotiate with the American regulators for the preservation of their personal interest and power, but it is not going to benefit Afghanistan.
No quick response was detected from the office of Afghanistan’s President, but a top Afghan regulator described that President Ghani would be getting word from America over its sustained assistance for the security forces of Afghanistan in a result of troops withdrawal.
The tour comes in the face of dull and slow growth in discussions between the Afghan government and the Taliban representatives in Qatar. Furthermore, officials have described that the Taliban is still to submit a written peace proposal that would act as an initial step for substantive discussions.
American intelligence experts, in May, released an evaluation that the Taliban would roll back most of the development made in the women’s rights in Afghanistan in case if the Islamist extremists re-attained the national power.
