Taliban condemn US exit strategy from Afghanistan

Afghan police officials arrive at the site of a suicide attack in Kabul on May 26, 2014Taliban insurgents Wednesday denounced US plans to keep troops in Afghanistan up to the end of 2016, threatening to wage war against the “occupation” until the very last foreign soldier pulls out. But outgoing President Hamid Karzai welcomed the timetable for the US’s complete withdrawal and called on the insurgents to seize a “historic” opportunity to seek peace after more than a decade of war. Outlining the US strategy to end America’s longest war, President Barack Obama confirmed on Tuesday that the 32,000-strong US deployment in Afghanistan would be scaled back to around 9,800 by the start of 2015. But underscoring the instability still roiling Afghanistan, two Americans were slightly wounded in an attack on a US consulate vehicle in Afghanistan’s western city of Herat on Wednesday.
