Taliban ask the US to leave Afghanistan by August 31


Islamist Taliban have asked the United States to leave Afghanistan by August 31.


The Taliban's warning has come after US President Joe Biden recently said US troops might remain in Afghanistan longer to oversee a "hard and painful" evacuation of its nationals and Afghan allies.

"It will create mistrust between us. If they are intent on continuing the occupation it will provoke a reaction," Shaheen said in remarks given to UK broadcaster Sky News.
