The U.S. intends to close the embassy in Kabul
There won't be a U.S. diplomatic mission in Afghanistan after the withdrawal of U.S. troops.
The U.S. will most likely close its embassy in Afghanistan after the withdrawal of U.S. troops. US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said this, the NBC TV channel reports.
He noted that the U.S. intends to continue to assist вЂњthose citizens who seek to leave Afghanistan and have not had time to do so by September 1.вЂќ
вЂњWe have ways, we have mechanisms that can make it easier for people to leave Afghanistan if they choose to leave,вЂќ Blinken said.
He said he hopes the Taliban will keep their promise and leave Afghanistan's borders open after Aug. 31.
вЂњRight now, of course, we don't take the Taliban at their word. We judge them by their actions, and we also watch them,вЂќ the secretary of state said.
Recall that the Taliban are demanding that Americans leave the country by September 1.
