International soldiers intend to remain in Afghanistan past the May deadline time imagined by the guerilla Taliban's arrangement with the United States, four senior NATO authorities said, a move that could raise pressures with the Taliban requesting a full withdrawal.
The administration of then-President Donald Trump consented to an arrangement with the Taliban early a year ago requiring the withdrawal of all foreign soldiers by May in return for the peace and security guarantees from the Taliban.
Trump hailed the understanding - which did exclude the Afghan government - as the finish of twenty years of war. He diminished U.S. troops to 2,500 by this month, the least since 2001. Plans on what will occur after April are currently being thought of and prone to be a top issue at a key NATO meeting in February, the NATO sources said.
