The seizure of the Afghan city of Kunduz by the Taliban has prompted Germany’s defense minister to mull the possibility of delaying troop withdrawal from the country.“It is important that we carefully examine the current situation and that we make a decision on the basis of the analysis and not according to rigid timelines, but based on the current situation,” German Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen said, as cited by Reuters.The minister called the events in Kunduz “worrying,” saying that NATO should take them into account when deciding on the future of its Afghan mission.
