Secretary of State Antony Blinken visited Brussels to try convincing NATO’s ally countries to withdrawal from Afghanistan.

During his visit Wednesday, Blinken met with NATO Secretary General Jen Stoltenberg to discuss the alliance members’ future in the region. He said neither the U.S. nor NATO has plans to desert the region despite the impending withdrawal.

There are roughly 7,000 NATO troops stationed in Afghanistan and Blinken made it clear what path the administration hopes the group will take. Meanwhile, none of the alliance members are expected to go against Joe Biden’s plans.
