Afghanistan: The Taliban are approaching Kabul!

International concern

The Taliban operation continues. The last stronghold of the Afghan government – the capital Kabul – is taking days to fall into their hands.

In fact, at a time when Westerners are watching the country in turmoil with embarrassment, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan seems determined to capitalize on the situation, seeking channels of communication with Islamist fighters.

The Afghan government is watching the developments numbly. It has shown that it is unable to recapture the strategically important provincial capital of Kala-i-Naou from the Taliban, nor to fill the void left by the American withdrawal.

This is a government that lacks strategy and leadership. Nearby countries are seriously concerned. Russia is also following developments with particular concern. China wants to “set foot” in the country, under the pretext of rebuilding Afghanistan.
