US President Joe Biden has again spoken out in support of his decision to withdraw US troops from Afghanistan. He said the decision was made in the national interest of the United States. Biden made the remarks in a speech at the White House on Tuesday, local time, according to AFP.
A day after the final withdrawal of all US troops from Afghan territory, President Joe Biden said: “We have no clear intention of continuing this operation in Afghanistan. (And so the withdrawal of the army) decision is absolutely correct. That’s the decent thing to do, and it should end there. ”
“I do not want to prolong this war any longer, nor do I want to prolong the withdrawal,” Biden said. He said the United States ended its 20-year war in Afghanistan last night. In his words, it was the longest war in America.
On the evacuation of US citizens and allied Afghans from the country after the Taliban regained power in Afghanistan, Biden said, “We have completed the largest air transport operation in history by evacuating more than 120,000 people.” Joe Biden also claims that no country has ever done such a thing.
The United States finally left Afghanistan on Monday after a long 20-year war. That night, the last five US military flights left Afghan territory. It marks the end of one of the longest-running wars in recent history and the US chapter on Afghan soil.
However, the United States has left about 200 Americans and thousands of Afghans willing to leave the country in Kabul, despite eventually leaving Afghanistan. The Associated Press reported on Tuesday.
The report said that despite the US military’s final withdrawal from Afghan territory on Monday, the United States had left about 200 Americans in Kabul. At the same time, the country has left behind thousands of Afghans who want to leave the country. They now have to rely on the Taliban’s permission to leave Kabul.
