Kabul: The German Defence Ministry on Wednesday announced that it is planning to pull its troops from Afghanistan by early July as the United States announced plans to withdraw by September 11.

“We want to shorten the withdrawal period. A withdrawal date of July 4 is being considered,” a ministry spokesperson told Agence France-Presse (AFP), stressing that the final decision would be made by NATO.

With 1,100 troops, Germany has the second biggest contingent of soldiers after the US in the country.

The withdrawal comes despite a deadlock in peace talks between the Taliban and the Afghan government.

NATO had agreed last week to begin their troop drawdown by May 1.

The 9,600-strong NATO training and support mission, which includes the US troops and depends heavily on Washington’s military assets, deployed personnel from 36 NATO members and partner countries in Afghanistan.
