NATO says Afghanistan withdrawal has started

BRUSSELS — NATO has begun to withdraw its own mission from Afghanistan following a decision by US President Joe Biden to bring US forces home, an alliance official says today.

“NATO Allies decided in mid-April to start the withdrawal of Resolute Support Mission forces by May 1 and this withdrawal has begun. This will be an orderly, coordinated, and deliberate process,” a NATO official tells AFP.
