US president Joe Biden in his major policy speech on Afghanistan in the White House said that US did not go to Afghanistan to build nation in the first place but this is the responsibility of the Afghans.

US president delivered his speech last night in which he announced to pullout the remaining troops on August 31, days ahead of his September 11th deadline.

“It’s the right and the responsibility of the Afghan people alone to decide their future and how they want to run their country.” Said biden.

US president Joe Biden delivers his speech hours after UK’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced the end of his country’s military mission in Afghanistan in parliament. Both the leaders touched mostly the same issues on the war torn-country.

Boris Johson and Joe Biden pledged not to leave those Afghans behind who have contributed to their military mission over the past two decades in Afghanistan. Biden in particular reiterated his state department’s decision to move Afghan interpreters to a third location before they enter into United States. As per Biden, US will start relocating applicants of SIV (Special Immigration Visa) this month.

A success in their two-decade mission in Afghanistan was another coordinated point uttered by both the leaders. They said that they have achieved their mission-counterterrorism- for which they went to Afghanistan in 2001.

As the Taliban have been in its strongest posture ever seen in past 20 years and continue capturing more territories Joe Biden said that he believes in the capacity of Afghan troops.

Biden reaffirmed that US will continue providing support to ANDSF.
