Since the withdrawal of US forces from Afghanistan and the Taliban’s occupation there, questions have been raised on the US that it has left alone those Afghan citizens who had helped US forces. This announcement of Biden is a relief for several thousand Afghans.
With this announcement of Biden, America has tried to show the world that it is not going away with the help of those who support it. Let us tell you that after the withdrawal of US forces, 33 out of 34 provinces of Afghanistan are occupied by the Taliban. Fighting continues in Panjshir. The Taliban is yet to form a government.
On the first Sunday also, Joe Biden had a big meeting on the Afghanistan situation. In that meeting, he had expressed concern over the situation in the country, even saying that now Afghanistan can become a new stronghold of terrorists. He insisted that IS terrorists operating in Afghanistan could target American soldiers and ordinary Afghans.
