U.S. Defense Secretary Mark Esper has banned U.S. military personnel from traveling abroad due to the spread of coronavirus.
The ban on traveling out of the country will continue for 60 days. The order of the head of the Pentagon applies to soldiers, civilian personnel and their families.
In this case, the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan will continue.
The reduction of US troops in Afghanistan was reported earlier in March. Within six months, the U.S. should reduce the number of its troops there to 8.6 thousand.
