US will resettle Afghans elsewhere (symbolic picture)
The Biden administration is preparing to relocate thousands of Afghan interpreters and others who worked with US forces during the war. Action is being taken on their applications for entry into America. A senior administration official gave this information on Thursday.
The official said preparations to resettle Afghans and their families in other countries or American territories, who helped Americans during the nearly 20-year war, have intensified in recent days and their applications have been shelved. The official, on condition of anonymity, said that the plans are yet to be made public.
Groups being identified
On Wednesday, the White House began to outline its plans to lawmakers. The official said the administration has already begun identifying groups of interpreters who are to be resettled out of Afghanistan before the full withdrawal of US troops by September. The Taliban has gained “significant momentum” since President Joe Biden’s decision to withdraw US troops from Afghanistan.
Afghan government may fall
US intelligence officials have warned that the Afghan government could fall only six months after US forces leave the country. The Taliban broke into northern Afghanistan last week and captured dozens of districts and nearby major cities. Afghan security forces surrendered without a fight. They left equipment such as the Humvee and other American supplies to the Taliban.
US intelligence experts believe that President Ashraf Ghani, who is due to meet President Biden in Washington on Friday to discuss US support for Afghanistan. Biden will assure them of American help for the next two years. However, intelligence analysts and senior US military officials believe the government of Afghanistan and its capital, Kabul, may collapse six to 12 months after the US military’s departure.
