Afghanistan has been in a state of severe pressure for the past few weeks. After the Taliban's took control over Afghanistan, Afghans started to find a way to escape from their land. People were settling in Kabul airport to get away from Afghanistan by means of any planes.

The U.S. military, which has been stationed in Afghanistan for the past 20 years, has announced its decision to withdraw its troops. When the American forces started to leave Afghanistan, the Taliban's begun to capture the city little by little and took the rule in Kabul after the escape of the Afghanistan President.
Jo Biden said, "In the last 17 days our forces have operated the largest air traffic in American history, expelling 120,000 American citizens, citizens of our allies and US allies in Afghanistan." He also called on the Taliban to allow those who want to leave Afghanistan. This demand has been made to the Taliban all over the world.
"I urge the Secretary of State to continue to coordinate with our international allies to ensure a safe route for Americans, Afghans and foreigners who wish to leave Afghanistan. This includes the UNSC resolution passed today."
"Tomorrow afternoon, I will inform the people of my decision not to extend our presence in Afghanistan beyond August 31st. This is the unanimous recommendation of all the Joint Leaders and our Commanders to end our flight as planned. We will work with the Taliban to reopen the airport for those who want to leave Afghanistan."
The Taliban have announced that Afghanistan has gained independence, with U.S. forces completely evacuating, including embassy officials. The Taliban reportedly fired into the air in various parts of the country, celebrating the withdrawal of U.S. troops.
United States Secretary of State Antony Blinken, on the full return of U.S. troops," U.S. military planes have completely evacuated. Our troops withdrew from Afghanistan. The new chapter of the United States with Afghanistan has begun. No longer will the political relationship continue.
As of today, we have shifted our presence in Kabul and our operations to Doha, Qatar. For now, we will be in Doha to manage our new relationship with Afghanistan. The United States will continue to provide humanitarian assistance to the people of Afghanistan." He continued by saying, "It will not, however, be through the government. Rather it will be through autonomous systems hope neither the Taliban nor any other faction will stop or obstruct this."
