Taliban dismisses US troop withdrawal

Group demands immediate exit from Afghanistan while the Karzai government welcomes Obama’s decision.

The Afghanistan government has welcomed the news that the US will withdraw troops from Afghanistan.

The Taliban has, however, dismissed the announcement. The group says the move, announced by President Barack Obama on Wednesday, is only “symbolic” and has demanded that American troops leave the country immediately.
