KABUL: The Taliban on Wednesday condemned President Barack Obama's announcement that US forces would remain in Afghanistan until the end of 2016.

"Now that Obama has announced that he will keep around 10,000 troops until the end of 2016 and continue their occupation, Afghanistan Islamic Emirate condemns it and considers it a violation of sovereignty, religion and human rights," said a statement, using the insurgents' name for the country.
