Joe Biden holds to Afghan pullout deadline despite criticism
TRT World says President Joe Biden has said US intends to complete its pullout from Afghanistan by August 31 and needs to withdraw rapidly because of a growing risk of militant attacks.
“The sooner we can finish, the better,” Biden said on Tuesday of the plan to evacuate Americans, Afghan nationals and US troops from Taliban-controlled Kabul.
“Each day of operations brings added risk to our troops.”
The US president said he had discussed the evacuation with Group of Seven leaders earlier on Tuesday and they agreed to “continue our close cooperation to get people out as efficiently and safely as possible.”
