Blinken Says Troop Pullout From Afghanistan ‘Doesn’t Mean We’re Leaving’ – sputniknews.com

From sputniknews.com Excerpt: WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – US Secretary of State Antony Blinken says there will still be US presence in Afghanistan after the pullout of American forces is completed.

“We’ve been engaged in Afghanistan for 20 years, and we sometimes forget why we went there in the first place, and that was to deal with the people who attacked us on 9/11. And we did. Just because our troops are coming home doesn’t mean we’re leaving. We’re not,” Blinken said on Sunday on CBS News’ “60 Minutes.”

Blinken pointed out that the US embassy will remain in Afghanistan and the US will continue providing economic, humanitarian, and developmental support in the country.

Asked whether the Taliban could end up taking over in Afghanistan, Blinken said that “We have to be prepared for every scenario and there are a range of them.”
