Germany closes its consulate in Mazar-i-Sharif in Afghanistan as the US military announces the withdrawal of 90% of its forces

Diplomatic sources said that Germany closed its consulate in Mazar-i-Sharif in northern Afghanistan, as part of the withdrawal of international forces from the Asian country.
The last German troops, who were stationed in a camp on the outskirts of Mazar-i-Sharif, left the country last week, according to Reuters.
The German consulate has been present in a military base since a suicide attack in 2016, which severely destroyed its headquarters in Mazar-i-Sharif, which housed the diplomatic representation.
The consulate’s closure comes at a time when violence and bloody confrontations have escalated between government forces and the Taliban terrorist movement, following the approach of foreign forces to complete their withdrawal from Afghanistan.
On Tuesday, the US military announced that it had completed more than 90% of its troop withdrawal from Afghanistan.
The Central Command of the US Army said, in a statement, that the United States had handed over more than 7 facilities to the Afghan Ministry of Defense, according to the Reuters agency.
