‘No Deadline’ for Afghanistan Evacuations, Says Blinken

VOA says the U.S. government is pledging to continue efforts to extricate Americans, U.S. permanent residents, allies and other vulnerable Afghans, even if it means going past the end-of-the-month deadline for American forces to leave Afghanistan.

There is “no deadline in getting out Americans and Afghans who want to leave past August 31,” Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Wednesday.

“They will not be forgotten,” Blinken emphasized as he responded to reporters’ questions. “And as I said, we will use every diplomatic, economic assistance tool at our disposal to pressure the Taliban to let people leave the country.”
