The President of the United States of America, Mr. Joe Biden’s has spoken up about the withdrawal of the U.S military troops from Afghanistan. Returning on Monday to the White House from the Camp David presidential retreat to make his first public remarks on Afghanistan in nearly a week, he says:

“If anything, the developments of the past week reinforce that ending US military involvement in Afghanistan now was the right decision,” said Mr Biden.

“American troops cannot and should not be fighting in a war and dying in a war that Afghan forces are not willing to fight for themselves.”

His address came after the horrific struggle at Kabul international airport on Monday. The dramatic scene involved hundreds of Afghan civilians desperately forcefully entering and clinging unto a military transporter aircraft as it prepared for take-off.

At least two of people are reported to have perished when they fell from the aircraft after it had left the ground. Two armed Afghans were killed by American troops as they were part of the crowd that breached the airport perimeter. Seven people reportedly died in total.

Although the U.S suspended its evacuation from Kabul but it has now resumed,

A photograph obtained by the US defense analysis website, Defense One from Sunday appears to show 640 Afghans packed onboard a US military cargo plane leaving Kabul for Qatar.

Panicked civilians had scrambled up the loading ramp, the website quoted US officials as saying, ‘but the crew decided it was best to take off rather than force the Afghans off’.
