After withdrawal of US forces from Afghanistan, terrorist organizations may regroup, problems for Pak: US general

Washington: Reorganization of terrorist groups will be a major problem for Pakistan after the US evacuates its troops from Afghanistan, a top US general said.
General Kenneth F. McKenzie Jr., commander US Central Command (CENTCOM), gave this warning at a recent Pentagon event. He said the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan could lead to a repeat of Al Qaeda and IS militants.
“It is related to all the neighboring states, the biggest concern for Pakistan,” Dawn told General Mackenzie at the briefing.
General Mackenzie also said that according to a transcript released by his command and US diplomat Pentagon, the Americans were working with countries around Afghanistan on the agreement of base troops and aircraft to counter the terrorists after the pullout.
General McKenzie said, “He was now figuring out how the US would be able to conduct counter-terrorism activities in the region without being in Afghanistan.”
The Centcom chief also said that the gathering of militants was not only a threat to the US or Pakistan.
“It is a concern for all Central Asian states in the north. It is also a concern for Iran in the west. I believe everyone has a vested interest in a stable Afghanistan,” he said.
