Afghan President Ashraf Ghani to visit US amid military drawdown




U.S military drawdown and a surge in  fighting between afghan forces  and taliban afghanistan's president  ashraf ghani will be visiting the united  states this week to hold talks with u.s  president joe biden  chairman of afghanistan's high council  financial reconciliation abdul abdullah  will accompany ghani on his first  face-to-face meeting with biden  u.s troop withdrawal is on the agenda  for the meet  now where joe biden will also repeat his  pledge to ensure that the country never  becomes a safe haven  for terrorist groups since biden's  decision to end america's longest  war after nearly 20 years of conflict  at least 30 of ghani districts have been  seized by the taliban  criticizing the recent taliban attacks  on various parts of the country  that time ashram county has issued a  warning to the taliban  saying that if they want enmity they  will face  serious response agane said that the  taliban should decide if they want to  seek a true political solution  or to continue the enemy that statement  came  amid slow progress between the taliban  and the afghan government  the taliban meanwhile has said that they  all committed two peace talks  adding that they wanted a genuine  islamic system  in afghanistan they head of the  taliban's political office  believes a genuine islamic system is the  best means  for a solution of all issues of the  afghans  officials have raised concerns over the  negotiations  and have said the taliban has not yet  submitted a written peace proposal  while there are growing fears of the  taliban returning to power and  eventually  reimposing their harsh version of  islamic law  afghanistan's former president ahmed  karzai has said that the u.s  failed at both fighting extremism and  bringing stability to the war-torn  region  he added that the u.s troops were  leaving behind  a disaster as extremism was at its  highest point  the heavy-handed totally wrong  u.s nato military campaign in  afghanistan  the campaign was not against extremism  or terrorism  the campaign was more against afghan  villages and homes  putting afghan people in prisons  creating prisons in our own country  against our people  and bombing our marriages  that was very wrong they're leaving  behind  a country in conflict  with so much loss of life  with so much suffering  we are correspondent sarah walton joined  us earlier from new york for more on  this listening  well when ghani meets uh joe biden for  the first time face to face at the white  house  this coming friday one of the things joe  biden will be looking to give the afghan  leader and the afghan people is  reassurance that  america will be there to support  afghanistan  in the long term if not militarily in  other areas economically and in  humanitarian aid  i think one thing that uh mr ghani will  probably not hear  when he goes to the white house is that  the u.s is planning to change  its withdrawal plans in any way despite  the  the situation on the ground in  afghanistan which as you've been saying  has really deteriorated  since joe biden made the announcement  that u.s troops will be withdrawn  by september the 11th that announcement  was made in in the april time and since  then  the taliban has overrun dozens of  districts  nevertheless we actually heard from the  national security adviser jake sullivan  who appeared on the morning news  breakfast shows in the u.s on sunday  morning and he said that there is no  plan to the  for the us to to change its uh program  of withdrawal in fact he said that they  are withdrawing troops  at a record pace and it's thought the  last u.s troops will actually be in a  position to  to leave afghanistan before that  september 11th deadline.
