Afghanistan Crisis: US President Joe Biden has made a big statement regarding American and Afghan citizens trapped in Taliban-occupied Afghanistan. Biden said on Friday that the campaign to get these people out of there is very risky and what will be its end result cannot be said. In a press conference at the White House, President Joe Biden said, “The US government is in constant contact there. We are trying to give Afghan citizens access to Kabul Airport.”
Committed to getting everyone out safely
Joe Biden also said, “Every American citizen who wants to return from Afghanistan will be brought back. At the same time, my government is also committed to bringing back the Afghan people who supported us during the 20 years of war in Afghanistan. There are 6,000 US soldiers on the spot to get all of them out safely.”
In a statement issued on Friday, the White House said, “We have brought back 9,000 people safely from Afghanistan since August 14. And since the end of July, about 14,000 people have been evacuated from there. Apart from this, 11 chartered flights have been dispatched from there under the supervision of the US Army in the last 24 hours.
Questions are not being raised on our credibility
Joe Biden has also said that no partner country has questioned the credibility of America regarding the withdrawal of its forces from Afghanistan. “None of our fellow countries around the world have questioned our credibility on this point,” he said.
