Moreover, the US-Taliban deal, signed in Doha last year in February that calls for the full withdrawal of US forces from Afghanistan by the end of May, has resulted in an increase in violence.
Taking stock of the situation, US President Joe Biden's national security adviser, Jake Sullivan, earlier said that they are "taking a hard look" at how the Taliban is complying with its agreement with the US before deciding how to proceed, reported TOLO News.
