White House Omits Macron Plea For 'Moral Responsibility' In Afghanistan; ABC Cuts 'Unflattering' Interview Segments

In the French government's readout of the conversation between the two leaders, Macron tells Biden that the US and its allies have a "moral responsibility' to ensure the safe evacuation of Afghan citizens who assisted US and European troops for the past two decades - who, along with their families, are now at great risk Taliban death squads, according to The Guardian.

"We cannot abandon them," Macron told Biden.

The White House, however, made no mention of Macron's comments about 'moral responsibility.'

"They lauded the tireless efforts of their personnel working closely together in Kabul on the evacuation of their citizens, the brave Afghans who have stood by us and our Nato partners, and other vulnerable Afghan nationals," reads a White House description of the call.

"They underscored the importance of continued close coordination among allies and democratic partners on Afghanistan, including through multilateral fora, on the provision of humanitarian assistance and support for refugees."
