The Afghan government could fall under the onslaught of terrorists as early as six months after the withdrawal of the American military, The Wall Street Journal reported citing data from the US intelligence community.

According to various estimates, the article says, the government of the incumbent President will stay in power from three months to a year.

The United States has already withdrawn from the country more than three and a half thousand of its military personnel and equipment.

The rest of the contingent must leave the region before September 11. Such a deadline was set in April by the American leader Joe Biden.

Now, according to the newspaper, the United States is calling on the military to slow down the pace of withdrawal of troops amid reports of the advancement of militants of the Taliban terrorist movement banned in Russia

According to the UN Special Representative for Afghanistan, the militants of the terrorist organization Taliban, banned in Russia, have taken control of more than 50 regions of Afghanistan since the start of the offensive in May and, presumably, are now preparing operations to seize a number of provinces.

According to media reports, since the beginning of May, more than 50 districts of Afghanistan, located in the immediate vicinity of the provincial administrative centers, have come under terrorist rule.

The US thinks that this suggests that the Taliban are taking up positions to try to take over these administrative centers when the withdrawal of foreign troops is complete.
