US intelligence services believe that the Taliban militants can lay siege to the capital of Afghanistan within 3-7 days.
This was reported by the CNN TV channel, citing sources in the special services and diplomatic circles of the country.
In connection with the active advancement of the Taliban, government forces can begin the defense of Kabul much earlier than Washington originally anticipated.
The channel notes that the administration of US President Joe Biden has decided to evacuate the staff of the American embassy, instead of taking any steps to prevent the seizure of the Afghan capital.
Among other things, the employees of the embassy in Kabul were instructed to “destroy all the important documentation of the diplomatic mission.”
