The North American country of the United
States of America is set to withdraw a considerable number of its troop members
from Afghanistan and Iraq – where a huge number of US troops were deployed to
The withdrawal is a part of the Trump administration’s
policy on deployment of troop members in foreign countries.
At present, the strength of US troops in
Afghanistan is around 5,000, and in Iraq is not less than 3,000. In both these
countries the strength will be reduced to around 2,500.
Earlier, US President Donald Trump said he
wanted all troops to reach home by this Christmas.
Mr. Trump has recently faced a humiliating
defeat in the US Presidential Election against Democratic Candidate Joe Biden.
The entire withdrawal process is expected to
end within few months – most probably before 15th January, 2021.
Trump’s decision has received criticism from his own party colleague. The Republican has said that terrorist would love the decision taken by Mr. Trump.
