Afghanistan: Foreign troops extension ‘a clear violation’ – Taliban

The Taliban say they will not extend the deadline for Western forces to leave Afghanistan.

A spokesman, Suhail Shaheen, told the BBC’s Yalda Hakim that the 31 August was a red line and that any extension would be a “clear violation” of the Doha agreement between the United States and the Taliban.

He said that the militants were “not creating any hurdles” for anyone with a passport wanting to leave the country, who “can go on commercial flights at any time”.
