The US will help build guard posts along the border of Tajikistan and Afghanistan to protect the Central Asian country from a possible Taliban* threat, according to the American embassy in the Tajik capital of Dushanbe.

The US aid to Tajikistan will help renovate the posts along the border which will allow Tajik border guards to “deploy forces more quickly to border areas in response to threats."

Tajikistan accepted over 100,000 Afghan refugees.

Russia previously announced that it will reinforce its military base in Tajikistan due to the situation with the Taliban. 

Earlier, it was reported on how the Taliban is spending their first day following the complete withdrawal of US forces.

*Taliban is a terror organization banned in the US, Russia and many other countries
