And a Washington Post report earlier, Tuesday, quoted people familiar with the matter as saying that Biden had decided to withdraw troops by September:

The newspaper said that the decision, which Biden is expected to announce, on Wednesday, will keep thousands of American soldiers in Afghanistan, after the date of May 1 that was agreed upon between the administration of former President Donald Trump and the Taliban.

Biden previously announced that the United States does not intend to stay for a “long period” in Afghanistan, but he pointed to the “difficulty” of adhering to the May 1 deadline for the withdrawal of US forces.

In February 2020, under the administration of Donald Trump, the United States concluded a historic agreement with the Taliban, providing for the withdrawal of all American soldiers from Afghanistan by May 1 in exchange for security guarantees and the start of direct negotiations between the militants and the authorities in Kabul.

Only 2,500 American soldiers remain in Afghanistan, where Washington began its intervention after the attacks of September 11, 2001.

Shafaq News / The American envoy to the Iranian file, Brian Hook, confirmed, on Wednesday, that the Iraqi Prime Minister, Mustafa Al-Kazemi, confronted Kataib Hezbollah early.

Hooke’s speech came in a speech, in which he also asserted that the Iranian general, Qassem Soleimani, had planned an attack against America’s interests, so Trump decided to strike him. The reports also document the weakness of Iran’s proxies as a result of the maximum pressure campaign.

He added that Iran has chosen to resist calls for dialogue as long as it is allowed to be wealthy, so the question is legitimate about nuclear weapons.

The US envoy on the Iranian file said, ” We have put in place the necessary tools with regard to pressure on Iran to get what we want. Trump made it clear that Tehran will not get a nuclear weapon, and there are discussions currently underway regarding an arms embargo on Iran.”
