Canada Will Keep Troops In Afghanistan Even After August 31: PM Trudeau

Read Time:1 Minute, 27 Second

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said that his country’s military officers stationed in Afghanistan will not travel from there even after the August 31 deadline. Keep in mind that between the Joe Biden government of America and the Taliban, it was agreed to complete the rescue operation by August 31.

Canadian PM Trudeau said that we will continue to put pressure on the Taliban to continue to allow people to leave. It is our commitment that Afghanistan should not be annihilated in the current era. We will continue to try to get more and more people out there every day with the help of our allies. Our other allies of G-7 also have the same commitment that we will try to save as many people as possible together.

Trudeau’s statement came after a Group-7 meeting on Tuesday in which leaders discussed extending the August 31 deadline. On this day, the Taliban insists and the US agrees on the withdrawal of US forces and the closure of the rescue operation. While the governments of other NATO countries, including the US, are running airlift operations to evacuate their citizens and Afghan citizens associated with them.

Meanwhile, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has made a discussion on this subject by urging this virtual conference. Canada is also part of this ongoing military operation from Kabul Airport, which is being led by the US Army. On Monday, a Canadian military plane evacuated more than 500 people from Kabul. Canadian Defense Minister Harjit Sajjan tweeted that Canada will continue to operate rescue operations as long as the situation permits. Before the conference, Trudeau also said that the Taliban’s withdrawal in Afghanistan will now require a rethink on the amount of aid given to it.
