The United States will end the longest military campaign in its history when the last American soldiers leave Afghanistan. This was announced by the President of the United States Joe Biden at a press conference at the White House, Bloomberg reports.
вЂњI will not send another generation of Americans to the war in Afghanistan without a reasonable expectation that a different result can be achieved. The United States cannot afford to remain tied to the policies created in the world as it was 20 years ago, вЂњ he said.
Earlier, Biden said that the United States military mission in Afghanistan will end on August 31.
In 2020, the United States and the Taliban (an organization banned in Russia) signed an armistice agreement for the first time in more than 18 years of war. According to the agreements, American troops must leave Afghanistan by September 11. The administration of the new U.S. president Joe Biden has announced its intention to review the agreements with the Taliban.
