EXPERT PERSPECTIVE — The US – Europe Group on Afghanistan, which includes special envoys and representatives for Afghanistan from France, Germany, Italy, Norway, the UK, the US and the EU expressed ‘grave concern’ earlier this month in a communique, about “the continued presence and operations of terrorists and terrorist groups in Afghanistan, including al-Qaeda and other groups with a stated aim to target countries in the region and beyond.”
The leaders specifically pointed to the presence of al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri, who was killed in a drone strike in Kabul on July 31.
