They ensure that citizens will be able to leave the country after the date if they have the necessary documentation.

One of the spokesmen of the Taliban, Suhail Shahin, has warned this Monday that there will be “consequences” if the United States and the rest of foreign countries do not complete the withdrawal and evacuations from Afghanistan by August 31, the deadline he established. the American president, Joe Biden.

In an interview with Sky News, Shahin has warned that August 31 “is a red line”, a date that is approaching as countries try to evacuate by forced marches and when Biden considers that US troops leave the Asian country after that date.

“Biden announced that on August 31 he would withdraw all his military forces,” said Shahin, who remarked that if the president extends the term “it means that there is an extension of the occupation when there is no need for it.” “If the United States or the United Kingdom seek more time to continue evacuations, the answer is no. Or there will be consequences,” he added.
