Afghan troops ‘fully capable’ of defending country, says Ghani


Afghan President Ashraf Ghani on Wednesday said his forces were “fully capable” of defending Afghanistan, as he revealed he had spoken to his US counterpart Joe Biden about the withdrawal of American soldiers.

“Tonight, I had a call with President Biden in which we discussed the US decision to withdraw its forces from Afghanistan by early September. The Islamic Republic of Afghanistan respects the US decision and we will work with our US partners to ensure a smooth transition,” Ghani tweeted.
