Afghans are going to have to decide their future



now moving on to our next story during a  meeting with his afghan counterpart u.s  president joe biden emphasized that  afghans would have to decide their future  now biden promised continued support for the country  even though the u.s and nato troops are  set to finish their withdrawal  on the 11th of september here's a report  by wyong correspondent susan tehrani  u.s president joe biden's message was  clear when he met  his afghan counterpart ashraf hani at  the white house on  friday along with abdullah abdullah  chair of afghanistan's high  council for national reconciliation  american troops were leaving the afghan  president while emphasizing that  america's decision  is a sovereign one he said his country  is experiencing an  1861 moment by president lincoln  fighting off the confederacy  as the tatavan advances on afghan forces  and sends the country further into a  crisis  us intelligence officials believe that  the afghan government  may fall as soon as six months after  american troop withdrawal what are the  challenges  that lie ahead first and foremost uh is  the the viability of the afghan national  security forces  and their ability to stem the momentum  that we're clearly seeing  uh in many parts of the country uh and  in the degree to which they're able to  repel uh  what we're seeing is a increasingly  assertive a taliban  uh uh plan um the other thing here to  keep in mind too is that more broadly speaking is the the political uh  question in terms of the afghan government and how cohesive it will  remain in the face of this oncoming pressure  president biden pledged 266 million  dollars in humanitarian assistance and  3.3 billion dollars  in security assistance for the afghan  leadership this meeting was crucial to  demonstrate that the government still  has the financial backing  from the west even without a u.s  military presence  the taliban have made significant  territorial gains since president biden  announced the withdrawal plan in may  and have often been met with a  demoralized afghan military force  despite the fact that there seems to be  a grim  overview on what will happen in  afghanistan  if u.s and allied troops leave at this  point  why do you think the u.s is so adamant  in withdrawing its forces  it its limited amount of forces  well this is you know on the political  side of things i think the biden  administration was placed in a very  precarious position when it it took  office in late january given that  the trump administration's had a signed  agreement with the taliban  with a a very firm and defined  uh end date for the us presence and  being in early may  and really to do anything you know much  beyond that  i think would have required a lot of  political capital  on the behalf of the biden  administration if they were going to  uh enter into a phase that might even be  more escalatory  given that the taliban by the word of  the agreement  would have some justification in  increasing attacks against u.s  personnel and interests within  afghanistan  president biden has set a formal  deadline for the withdrawal of u.s and  foreign forces from afghanistan by  september 11th  susan tehrani from new york.
