Kabul: All American troops would withdraw from Afghanistan over the next three to five years under the Afghan peace process plan, a report published in NYT claimed.
According to a report, the rest of the international force in Afghanistan would leave at the same time. There are around 14,000 American troops currently deployed in Afghanistan.
The withdrawal of troops will help peace talks with the Taliban that are being led by Zalmay Khalilzad, the American special envoy.
Until the final withdrawal, several thousand American forces would continue strikes against Al Qaeda and the Islamic State, including on partnered raids with Afghan commandos.
