The United States will expel some embassy officials from the US embassy in Afghanistan. They will not recognize any government. In the evening, the EU sent a similar message to the world.
Foreign Ministry spokesman Netflix said Thursday afternoon that the footprint of our citizens continues to be reduced in light of the growing security situation in Kabul.
The United States is sending 3,000 troops to Kabul airport to evacuate some diplomats. The embassy is open. At the same time, the United States will expedite the expulsion of Afghan translators who have worked for the United States. “We will have a key diplomatic presence in Afghanistan in the coming weeks,” Price said. Price did not immediately provide a specific number of evicted persons. At the beginning of July, the embassy employed about 4,000 people, including about 1,400 Americans.
The United Kingdom is sending 600 troops to Afghanistan. They should help the British troops and the British to drive out Afghanistan.
The announcement by the US and UK state departments shows how bad the situation is in Afghanistan. The Americans fear that the Taliban will soon seize the country’s capital. Not entirely unreasonable. The Taliban captured the city of Ghazni on Thursday, 150 kilometers southwest of the Afghan capital Kabul. In addition, they captured two other provincial capitals.
The international community will not recognize the new Afghan government once it has seized power by force. U.S. State Department spokesman Nate Price said Thursday. He said the news would then be spread by several international partners.
The Taliban’s violent takeover will isolate Afghanistan internationally and stop aid payments. “In addition, the potential for continued conflict and instability in Afghanistan hangs in the balance,” said EU High Representative Joseph Borel.
Considering the ongoing peace talks between the Afghan government and the Taliban in Qatar, Price called on all parties to agree on a common political process for the future of the country.
