Al-Qaida Grouping no longer pose a threat to the world community. This was stated by the head of the US Department of State Anthony Blinken in a conversation with journalists CNN TV channel, justifying the conclusion of the American contingent from Afghanistan.
“We should remember why we initially entered Afghanistan,” said the head of the State Department, stating that the main reason was the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.
“We entered Afghanistan to bring to the responsibility of those who attacked us, and to do everything possible to do not happen again. We mostly achieved our goals,” Blinken said, reminding that the former leader “Al- Caida “” Usama Ben Laden was brought to reply 10 years ago. “
According to US Secretary of State, the threat from Afghanistan from Al-Qaida “against the United States or anyone else has been significantly reduced, if not completely eliminated.” “So this task is mostly fulfilled,” Blinken believes. He also stated that the United States “spent 20 years, $ 1 trillion, 4.5 thousand Americans lost their lives.”
