US did not leave any military equipment there at the time of its withdrawal from Afghanistan.

US national security spokesman John Kirby has said that the US did not leave any military equipment there at the time of its withdrawal from Afghanistan.

This statement of the US National Security Spokesperson has come at a time when Pakistan’s Caretaker Prime Minister Anwar Haq Kakar, talking to foreign media representatives a few days ago, claimed that the weapons left by the US in Afghanistan are the banned Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan. (TTP) with the help of which they are targeting Pakistani security forces.

When John Kirby was asked if the American weapons left in Afghanistan had fallen into the hands of terrorists? The spokesman said that the war equipment you are talking about was handed over to the Afghan Defense Forces a long time ago to enable them to take responsibility for the security of their country.

He said that when the Taliban advanced toward Kabul and many other areas, the Afghan forces left this equipment. The US did not leave these weapons there.

It should be noted that the US completed its withdrawal from Afghanistan in August 2021 after a war that lasted for almost 20 years, after which the Taliban took over power.

The US forces disabled helicopters and other equipment in Kabul before the withdrawal.

According to John Kirby, the military equipment that was left in Afghanistan included airport mechanical equipment, two fire trucks, and ladder trucks.

Recent months have seen a gradual increase in attacks on Pakistan’s security forces. On Wednesday, the TTP allegedly infiltrated across the border and attacked two posts of the Pakistan Army in the border district of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

04 personnel were killed in TTP attacks while authorities claimed to have killed 12 terrorists in retaliation.

Speaking about the security threats facing Pakistan, the spokesperson of the US National Security Council said that Pakistan has been facing threats of terrorism for a long time.

He said that he will continue to work with Pakistan to deal with the threat to the people of Pakistan and its borders as it is not an insignificant threat.

John Kirby added that President Joe Biden understands the border threat Pakistan faces and is committed to continuing to work with Pakistan.
