US Forces Under Pressure To Be Out Of Afghanistan By August 31

The Taliban, on Monday, warned that there would be consequences if the United States allies stay in Afghanistan beyond August 31.

The warning came as Washington prepared to wrap up all its evacuation efforts for people desperate to flee.

Thousands of troops returned to the country to see to it that the chaotic evacuation of refugees happens without interference.

The warning, however, is not the only source of pressure for US president Joe Biden. More pressure has been mounting on him from his allies to extend the deadline for the American troops in Afghanistan.

His allies hope that he will extend the August 31 deadline.

Biden and his group of seven counterparts, several of whom are pressuring him to extend the deadline will be meeting later today. They are to set to devise means of handling the hardline Islamist Taliban in Afghanistan as a top priority.

‘’The goal is to get as many people out as fast as possible. The focus is on trying to do this as best we can, by the end of the month,’’ Pentagon spokesperson John Kirby said.

Another report showed that the White House is confident they can evacuate all Americans from the country by the deadline. However, the biggest number of those being evacuated are Afghan nationals.

The Taliban have shown no interest to compromise.

‘’If the US or UK were to seek additional time to continue evacuations, the answer is no, there would be consequences,’’ Suhail Shaheen, a spokesman said.
