US will remain in Afghanistan on diplomatic level - WH

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki told the reporters on Tuesday that despite withdrawing American troops from Afghanistan the United States will still keep its diplomatic presence in Kabul.

"We will continue of course to have an over-the-horizon presence, we will continue to provide a range of humanitarian and other direct assistance, we will still have an embassy at this point in Afghanistan," Psaki said, referring to Presiden Joe Biden's speech.

President Biden made the decision to pull US troops out of Afganistan and fully withdraw them by September 11, 2021, ending a 20-year military campaign that has taken away over 2,300 lives of American soldiers.
