Afghanistan government nervous over US troops withdrawal reports

KABUL - Afghan Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah has said the United States has assured Afghanistan’s government that any U.S. Troop pullout would not affect the combat abilities of remaining forces.

In an interview in Davos Abdullah said news last month that president Donald Trump was planning to withdraw 5,000 U.S. Troops had caused unease in the government.

He said since then, however, U.S. Officials had told the afghan government that no final decision had been made, and that Washington remained committed to supporting Afghan defense and security institutions.
