Biden says US & allies ‘stand shoulder to shoulder’ on Afghanistan – would not reveal how Americans get out of Kabul after Aug. 31

President Joe Biden said the US is “on pace” to finish evacuation efforts from Afghanistan by August 31, if the Taliban cooperates, but couldn’t say how many Americans still remain or what the plan for after the deadline is.

Biden’s address was originally scheduled for noon on Tuesday, but was pushed back for reasons that weren't explained. The scheduled briefings by the State Department and the Pentagon were both canceled.

Finally showing up just after 5 pm, Biden opened his remarks by talking about his domestic economic agenda in Congress, before addressing Afghanistan. He repeated the talking points of the previous week about the 20-year war needing to end, and talked about US coordination and cooperation with the G7, NATO, UN and EU.
