While informing of the last 2,500 US troops in Afghanistan, Biden said that he is in the process of making the decision as to when they will leave.

Reacting to the deadline set in an accord struck with the Taliban under former President Donald Trump in February 2020, Biden said, it was not a very solidly negotiated deal that the then-president oversaw.

The Taliban reacted to Biden’s comments, with a spokesperson telling that there would be consequences if the United States did not stick to the agreed timetable — further raising pressure on the fragile peace process.
