All foreign military personnel have left the territory of Afghanistan, now the state is completely under the control of the Taliban movement (recognized as a terrorist and banned in the Russian Federation), the official representative of the Taliban Politburo, Mohammad Naim, said on August 31.

"Yes, the last foreign serviceman left the territory of Afghanistan. Now the entire territory of the country is under the control of the Taliban. Now our state has become free and independent, "RIA Novosti quotes him as saying.

In addition, Naim on his Twitter congratulated all residents of Afghanistan on the end of the withdrawal of foreign troops from the country.

"Congratulations to all our compatriots and dear people. Today, all foreign forces have left our land, " the Taliban representative wrote.

The day before, the head of the United States Central Command, General Kenneth Mackenzie, confirmed in an interview with reporters the departure of the last US Air Force aircraft from Kabul and the completion of the 20-year American mission in Afghanistan.

After that, the US Federal Aviation Administration notified that the US military no longer controls the airspace over the airport of the Afghan capital. According to an Al Jazeera source, the Kabul air harbor has come under the full control of the Taliban.

On the same day, the UN Security Council adopted a resolution on Afghanistan, which calls on the Taliban movement to ensure safe departure from the country for everyone.

On February 29, 2020, the previous head of the White House, Donald Trump, and the Taliban signed a peace agreement in Doha. According to its terms, the United States, its allies and the coalition commit to withdraw all troops from Afghanistan within 14 months. The Taliban, in turn, guaranteed that they would not use the territory of Afghanistan for actions that pose a threat to the security of the United States and its allies.

The situation in Afghanistan escalated in May 2021 after the start of the withdrawal of American troops who had been in the country for the past 20 years.

On August 15, Taliban militants entered Kabul, then declared the "end of the war". On the same day, the President of the Islamic Republic, Ashraf Ghani, left the country.
