The US has agreed to withdraw all its troops from Afghanistan, a spokesperson for the Taliban announced on Tuesday. “Americans have agreed during the negotiations that they will withdraw all their troops and promised not to interfere in Afghanistan inĀ  the future. This is a good progress,” Taliban spokesperson Suhail Shaheen wrote on Twitter. However, there was no immediate US reaction to his claims.
