The deadline and the plan for the departure of the Japanese diplomats is still known, Kyodo news agency reported.

Lately, the United States and the United Kingdom announced the dispatch of several thousand of soldiers to reinforce security during the departure of diplomats from their respective embassies in Kabul, which is surrounded by the Taliban movement.

Despite a deal between the Taliban leadership and the United States for a negotiated solution to the conflict in Afghanistan, the rebel group launched a lightning offensive throughout the country, at the same time as the withdrawal of US troops.

Local media deemed that 20 years of US military occupation and war against the Afghan population have left negative aftermaths for the nation that are now multiplying, after a death toll of over 150,000 civilian lives.
