“Taliban says people who worked for foreign forces in Afghanistan will be safe as long as they show ‘remorse’ and should not leave the war-ravaged country. ‘They shall not be in any danger on our part … None should currently desert the country,’ a statement released by the armed group said on Monday. … The statement came as the United States and NATO forces are continuing to pull out, after US President Joe Biden set September 11 as the deadline to end Washington’s 20-year military involvement in the country. Thousands of Afghans worked with the international forces in the past 20 years as interpreters, security guards, and helpers in other capacities.” (06/07/21)
