KABUL: Czech President Milos Zeman has expressed concerns over the U.S. and NATO forces withdrawal from Afghanistan, warning the country could be a new hotspot for the terrorism, a spokesperson said.
The U.S. led allied forces are on track to depart Afghanistan before September 11.
“At the summit, President of the Republic Milos Zeman criticized the withdrawal of NATO troops from Afghanistan. He recalled that Czech soldiers had laid down their lives in the fight against terrorism in Afghanistan. He also warned that the Taliban, after taking over the entire country, could turn Afghanistan into a new center of terrorism,” Jiri Ovcacek tweeted.
This comes as Afghanistan is currently griped with a sting of sever violence as the armed conflicts between the Afghan security forces and Taliban have been intensified across the country.
The UN Security Council said in a recent report that the Taliban group have been posing high threats to the Afghan government.
