The leader of the resistance in the Afghan province of Panjshir, Ahmad Massoud earlier told the media he would give up his struggle if the Taliban* forms an inclusive government and guarantees equal rights for all Afghans.
US President Joe Biden addressed the nation on 31 August and said the American evacuation mission in Afghanistan was an “extraordinary success” the day after the last US warplane left the Kabul International Airport. Biden noted that Washington still has leverage to ensure that the Taliban movement meets its commitments to safe passage for those wishing to leave Afghanistan. The decision to withdraw American forces from Afghanistan was about ending the era of major nation-building operations, the American president concluded.
On the same day, US Department of State spokesperson Ned Price said in a press briefing that Washington has been in contact with Americans who are still on the ground in Afghanistan and provided them with information on how to continue to stay in touch after the US troop withdrawal.
The Taliban is also expected to announce the formation of a new Afghan government on 3 September, but its composition remains uncertain as of now.
