Washington. US President Joe Biden may extend the August 31 deadline for the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan. The New York Times has given this information. Indeed, after the takeover of the Taliban, Biden is facing international pressure to extend the time for the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan.
At the same time, US Vice President Kamala Harris said on arrival in Singapore that America is currently focusing its full attention on the evacuation of people from Afghanistan. After this, there will be a lot of time to consider the removal of the US Army from there. Harris met with Prime Minister Lee Sen Loong and President Halimah Yacob of Singapore on Monday and discussed ways to reduce China’s growing economic and security influence in the region.
Lee told a joint press conference after the meeting that since the US entered Afghanistan twenty years ago, terrorist organizations have stopped considering Afghanistan as a safe haven. Singapore is grateful for this. We hope that Afghanistan will not become a stronghold of terrorist organizations again.
