Washington. US President Joe Biden said on Friday that his country’s partnership with the South Asian nation will continue as it prepares to withdraw its troops from Afghanistan. “The partnership between Afghanistan and the United States is not dying out,” Biden told reporters in the Oval Office of the White House, appearing before the media with Afghan President Ashraf Ghani and CEO Abdullah Abdullah. It will last.” “While our troops may be coming from there, our support in terms of economic and political cooperation as well as maintaining Afghanistan’s military is not ending,” Biden said.
Ghani and Abdullah are on a trip to the US to meet with Biden at the White House. Visiting leaders met with top officials in the Biden administration, including Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, CIA Director William Burns and top congressional leadership. As the US prepares to leave Afghanistan, Biden said the two leaders have very difficult tasks. “They are doing an important job of building unity among Afghan leaders. The citizens of Afghanistan are going to determine their future what they want. But this will not help us in any way… needless violence, it has to stop, it is going to be very difficult. But we will be with you and we will try our best to get what you need.”
Ghani said the US is entering a new era of bilateral relations where the partnership will be not only military but broad based on mutual interests. He said, “We are extremely encouraged and satisfied that this partnership is taking place. Thanks for setting the priorities.” Earlier at the Pentagon, Defense Secretary Austin mentioned how the Defense Ministry has put a lot of effort into Afghanistan’s security and stability and negotiations.
