Many Happy Returns In this Month for US & NATO Forces from Longest War Afghanistan to Back Home

NATO to leave this month their 9,600-strong mission in Afghanistan after Biden says it’s time to end Washington’s longest war.

NATO allies will begin withdrawal from Afghanistan from May 01, 2021. The return of forces will be an orderly, coordinated, and deliberate process, says NATO officials.

“Nato Allies decided in mid-April to begin the withdrawal of Resolute Support Mission forces by May 1 and this withdrawal has started. This will be an orderly, coordinated, and deliberate process,” a Nato official said.

Biden has recently announced once and again that he would withdraw his forces from Afghanistan. Taliban leaders have also demanded this during the peace Talks.

At the time of President Donald Trump, the decision of withdrawal of members of the US-backed alliance was made repeatedly but it could not implement and the dominant reason was the fear of Afghan Taliban in regaining power in country. But this time a strong decision has been made under the administration of President Biden to wrap up 9,600-strong mission Washington’s longest war in Afghanistan.

Baiden seems more committed than Trump

The Nato official said the safety of the alliance’s troops “will be a top priority every step of the way, and we are taking all necessary measures to keep our personnel from harm”.

“Any Taliban attacks during the withdrawal will be met with a forceful response. We plan to have our withdrawal completed within a few months,” the official said, refusing to give any further details on the timeline.

Biden said the US withdrawal would be completed by Sept 11, the twentieth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on America that sparked its military involvement in Afghanistan.

Germany’s defence ministry has said it planned to get its 1,300 troops out of the country by early July.

Nato’s training and support mission, which includes around 2,500 US troops and relies heavily on Washington’s military assets, has personnel from 36 alliance member nations and partner countries.

The US has said it is temporarily deploying extra troops to protect international forces as they withdraw and has prolonged the presence of an aircraft carrier in the region to support the pull-out.

Trump struck a deal with the Taliban last year that was meant to see US and allied troops leave Afghanistan by the start of May provided attacks decreased and peace talks progressed.

Biden decided to call time on the two-decade deployment of troops despite insurgent violence flaring and negotiations between the Taliban and the Kabul government stalling.

The US insists it has achieved its aim of stopping Afghanistan serving as a “haven for terrorists” after uprooting Al Qaeda networks, and says it risks a never-ending military involvement if it does not pull out.

Top US general Mark Milley said it was not possible to predict Afghanistan’s fate after the withdrawal and warned of a “worst-case” outcome of a government collapse.

But along with its fellow Nato members, Washington insists it remains committed to Afghanistan. the alliance said in a statement last month.

“Nato Allies and partners will continue to stand with Afghanistan, its people, and its institutions in promoting security and upholding the gains of the last 20 years,”

“Withdrawing our troops does not mean ending our relationship with Afghanistan. Rather, this will be the start of a new chapter.”
