The new Afghan authorities are categorically against the presence of foreign armed forces on the territory of the country, Deputy Minister of Culture and Information of the interim government Zabihullah Mujahid said.
“We can interact with the world, the Americans and others, but we will not allow our land to be used for aggression against other states. Therefore, we will not allow foreign military personnel to be on the territory of Afghanistan,” he said.
At the end of the summer, the Taliban militants carried out a rapid offensive on the positions of government forces and took control of all regions of the country. In parallel, the U.S. troops were withdrawing. On the night of August 31, the U.S. military left the Kabul airport, ending almost 20 years of military presence.
