A senior US administration official said the Pentagon should focus on the situation in the Indo-Pacific region after the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan. On the eve of the administration of President Joe Biden announced a revision of the timing of the withdrawal of its troops from Afghanistan, now it is planned to do it before September 11, 2021.
The US military spokesman stressed that Washington must focus on the key challenges of the 21st century. In their opinion, they mainly lie in the Indo-Pacific region.
Part of the forces from Afghanistan will therefore be redeployed with this goal in mind. According to the military, the United States devoted “a disproportionate amount of time and attention” to Afghanistan.
