Annual assessment of threats to US national security regarding the consolidation of Taliban power in Afghanistan

The annual assessment of threats against US national security shows that the Taliban regime has consolidated its power in Afghanistan and suppressed its opponents in the past year.According to the report, which was released on Monday, the prospect of threatening resistance against the Taliban regime is low because “many Afghans are tired of the Taliban’s war and revenge.”The report also says that the armed forces opposing the Taliban lack “strong leadership” and external support.However, the findings of the American intelligence agencies show that the Taliban regime will not address the current humanitarian crisis and economic weaknesses of Afghanistan and “will continue to prioritize the implementation of religious rule.”According to the US, the focus of regional powers is to keep Afghanistan’s problems confined inside this country, and at the same time they are trying to expand bilateral interactions with the Taliban.In a part of the report of the US intelligence agencies, it is added that the Khorasan branch of ISIS seeks to weaken the legitimacy of the Taliban regime by targeting the interests of other countries in Afghanistan.Previously, the Secretary General of the United Nations also wrote in his quarterly report that the armed opposition groups of the Taliban have not created “any challenge” in controlling the areas against this group.
