Germany's Parliament extended the presence of German troops in Afghanistan for another 10 months, media reports say.
Germany has up to 1,300 soldiers in Afghanistan under NATO’s Resolute Support’s train, advice and assist mission to Afghan forces who will stay until January 2022.
The current parliamentary mandate for the German operation expires at the end of March, according to a Reuters report.
This comes as the Biden administration is still reviewing the 2020 agreement with the Taliban and it is not yet clear whether or for how long NATO troops will stay in the country.
US President Joe Biden on Thursday said it will be hard to meet the May 1 deadline for getting troops out of Afghanistan for "tactical reasons."
“We will leave--the question is when we leave,” he said.
Asked if he envisioned US troops in Afghanistan a year from now, Biden said, “I can't picture that being the case.”
