Source: Die Linke “Donald Trump’s announcement that he intends to withdraw the majority of US troops from Afghanistan by the end of the year is putting the federal government under great pressure. Germany should have implemented the withdrawal of the Bundeswehr on its own long ago and not just as a reaction to US policy, ”explains Heike Hänsel, deputy chairman of the DIE LINKE parliamentary group. The foreign policy official continued: “Only yesterday the German government replied to a written question that it was preparing for ‘possible adjustment measures within the framework of NATO’s Resolute Support mission’. This delaying tactic with a view to a policy change in the White House must not continue. This war effort was wrong from the start and shouldn’t have even started. The withdrawal of the Bundeswehr from Afghanistan is long overdue and must be decided immediately. The federal government must immediately submit plans to parliament as to how it will react to the further withdrawal of US troops. “
