As Turkey negotiates the terms of retaining its forces at Kabul airport with Washington many air concerns that Turkish troops will be imperilled in the wake of the US withdrawal. The Taliban is wresting back control of much of the country as Afghan government troops flee their positions with some seeking refuge in neighboring Tajikistan. The Taliban has said it wants no foreign troops left behind once the Americans go so what does this spell for Turkey? Contrary to the prevailing view Ayesha Siddiqa believes Turkey is taking a well calculated risk. Editor's note: This podcast was recorded to the Taliban's statement saying it opposed the continued presence of Turkish troops on Afghan soil and identifying Turkey by name. https://www.al-monitor.com/originals/2021/07/taliban-renew-demand-turkey-leave-afghanistan
