During the handover ceremony, the US-NATO Armed Forces Commander Gen. Scott Miller reiterated the international community’s continued support for the Afghan armed forces, according to Afghan network Tolo News.
So far, according to the United States Central Command, the Pentagon has removed the equivalent of around 160 loads of C-17 material from Afghanistan and delivered more than 10,000 items of equipment to the Defense Logistics Agency.
Also on Friday, the President of the United States, Joe Biden, stated that the United States was leaving Afghanistan in order to fulfill its duty: to get al-Qaeda to use Afghanistan as a base for future attacks on the United States. “
“We achieved this purpose,” said Biden during a speech at Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Virginia.
“As we approach withdrawal, we will also focus on the urgent work involved in rebuilding our capabilities to eradicate al-Qaeda on their return to Afghanistan,” added the president.
