Canadian Troops To Stay Beyond Aug 31 Deadline In Afghanistan: PM Justin Trudeau

Ottawa: Canadian forces in Afghanistan will stay beyond August 31 despite Taliban warning not to miss the deadline. The announcement was made by Canadian PM Justin Trudeau after a virtual meeting of the G-7 leaders.

“Our commitment to Afghanistan doesn’t end when this current phase comes. We will continue to put pressure on the Taliban to allow people to leave the country,” Trudeau was quoted by ANI.

Meanwhile a Canadian plane left Kabul with around 500 evacuees on Monday. “Our regular aid, investments and agencies need to be looked at carefully to make sure we are not supporting the Taliban indirectly,” Trudeau had said before the summit.

With the threat of missing the deadline looming large, foreign forces especially that of the US and UK are scrambling for a complete pull out. Are they afraid of the hardliners?
