“In April 1988, nine years and four months after the Soviets first invaded Afghanistan, representatives of Afghanistan, the USSR, the United States, and Pakistan met to sign an agreement calling for the Russian army to pull its forces out of Afghanistan. Afghanistan and Pakistan agreed to stop interfering in the other’s political and military affairs. And the United States agreed to end its support for the Afghan anti-Soviet groups.” [The 15th of the month used for date sorting purposes only.]
