Taliban attacks worsen as Biden warns of American withdrawal


U.S. – Taliban peace deal

WASHINGTON – Towards the end of 2020, attacks perpetrated by the Taliban terrorist group in Afghanistan sharply increased, as the administration of U.S. President Joe Biden has recently made statements indicating that the Taliban have not lived up to U.S. military withdrawal terms laid out between the Taliban and former U.S. President Donald Trump. In may of 2021, U.S. forces are to withdraw from the 20-year war ravaged region of the middle east should the Taliban fulfill the U.S. terms of withdrawal, however seeing as Taliban attacks on the Afghan city of Kabul have increased, the deadline will be likely put off to a later date. International troops are, however, likely to remain in the region after United States forces withdraw from the region.
