Secretary of State Blinken Visits Afghanistan Day After US Announces Plans for Withdrawal
Secretary of State Antony Blinken arrived in Kabul, Afghanistan, Thursday in an unannounced visit to the country where US troops have been fighting for nearly 20 years, CNN reports.
"The partnership is changing, but the partnership is enduring," he said.
Ghani said that he respected the US decision and "are adjusting our priorities."
"What you and your predecessors did over the last 20 years is really extraordinary."
President Joe Biden said Wednesday he would withdraw US troops from Afghanistan before September 11, the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon that launched the war.
Biden said the withdrawal will begin on May 1, in line with an agreement President Donald Trump's administration made with the Taliban. Some US troops will remain to protect American diplomats, though officials have declined to provide a precise number.
