Biden steadfast on US troop withdrawal from Afghanistan by 31 August

by Ashley Roque

Washington still intends to withdraw all its military troops from Afghanistan by the end of August but is crafting a contingency plan to extend that date into September, US President Joe Biden announced on 24 August. His decision comes despite pleas from foreign partners and allies to push the date so that they can continue to use Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul to evacuate their citizens and Afghans from the country.

Biden's announcement came after the Group of Seven – Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom (UK), and the United States (US) – and other world leaders held a virtual meeting earlier in the day on the deteriorating situation inside the Central Asian country.

“On evacuation, we agreed that we will continue our close co-operation to get people out as efficiently and safely as possible. We're currently on pace to finish by 31 August. The sooner we can finish the better. Each day of operations brings added risk to our troops,” he said from the White House, citing the risk that the terrorist group ISIS-K poses to the airport and the surrounding area.
