Taliban have warned Turkey against extending its presence in the country when US-led forces leave the country, insisting the decision is “reprehensible”.

“The decision … is ill-advised, a violation of our sovereignty and territorial integrity and against our national interests,” the group said in a statement, Dawn newspaper reported.

The statement comes days after Turkey promised to provide troops to protect Kabul airport when foreign forces leave next month.

On 9 July, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan had said that Turkey and the US agreed on the “scope” of how to secure Kabul airport under the control of Turkish forces after Washington’s withdrawal from Afghanistan.

Turkey promised to provide security for the airport once the troops leave next month, in a move hailed as an example of improved relations between Ankara and Washington.
