“I have not seen any question about our credibility from allies around the world.”
US President Joe Biden
U.S. President Joe Biden has rebutted the recent crisis in Afghanistan over concerns that the U.S. would erode international trust. President Biden said at a press conference at the White House on the 20th (local time) that he, the Secretary of State, and the White House national security adviser were in contact with NATO as well as its counterparts around the world.
President Biden reiterated that he had never seen any doubts about the trustworthiness of the United States during the meeting, and emphasized that he was cooperating with the allies in evacuation operations, etc. He also said he attended the G7 summit and met NATO partners before making the decision to withdraw US troops from Afghanistan.
President Biden also said he was committed to the withdrawal of Americans and allies from Afghanistan. “We have nearly 6,000 troops deployed (at Kabul airport),” he said. “He said. “We have already evacuated more than 18,000 people since July and about 13,000 people have been evacuated since the start of the military airlift on August 14,” he said. Thousands of people were evacuated by private chartered planes promoted by the U.S. government.” “This is one of the largest and most difficult airlifts in history, and the only country capable of projecting this level of force on the other side of the globe with this level of accuracy is the United States,” Biden said.
