Biden: Taliban takeover of Afgan not inevitable

Thursday, 08. July 2021 20:24

The Taliban are not guaranteed to take over Afghanistan after the United States military pullout, President Joe Biden stated on Thursday, arguing that the capacity of the Afghan military should be enough to stop the military movement.

The Afghan forces are "better trained, better equipped, and more competent in terms of conducting war," Biden asserted.

"There is not a conclusion that the [country's government] can defeat the Taliban," the leader said, noting that he believes "the only way there is going to be peace and security in Afghanistan is that [Kabul works] out a modus vivendi with the Taliban."
