Regarding the deadline for the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan, US media reported that President Biden has decided not to extend the deadline set on 31st of this month.

President Biden was considering extending the deadline, but it seems that he is aiming for withdrawal as planned due to the acceleration of evacuation.

US media reported on the 24th that President Biden has decided not to extend the deadline for the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan, which is set to 31st this month, according to a senior government official.



In Afghanistan, President Biden's withdrawal deadline is due to the fact that people who are afraid of the Taliban and are trying to flee abroad are rushing to the international airport in the capital Kabul and it is taking time to evacuate local cooperators such as Americans and interpreters. Although he was considering extending the number, the Taliban argued that the extension would not be allowed.



However, since the 14th of this month when the U.S. military began full-scale support, the number of evacuees has exceeded 58,000, and the evacuation has progressed rapidly, with more than 20,000 leaving the country in the 24 hours from the 23rd. However, it seems that President Biden has decided to withdraw by the 31st of this month, as originally planned.



On the other hand, the security situation around the airport in Kabul is deteriorating due to the deaths in the shooting battle, and it is unpredictable whether we can withdraw as planned.
