The top US military commander in Afghanistan says the handing over of military bases and equipment to the Afghan forces has begun as Washington prepares to withdraw the remaining US forces from the country by September 11.

General Scott Miller, who has been commanding the US forces and the western NATO military alliance in Afghanistan since 2018, told reporters in the capital Kabul on Sunday that foreign forces will continue to have “the military means and capability to fully protect themselves during the ongoing retrograde and will support the Afghan security forces.”
