Biden withdraws Afghanistan’s withdrawal deadline on May 1

Washington: President Joe Biden says it will be “difficult” for the US to meet a May deadline to withdraw troops from Afghanistan, but it won’t take much time for a full draw.
The deadline to end America’s longest war six weeks from now was set by former President Donald Trump and the Taliban under an agreement, without the purchase of the Afghan government.
In an interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopolous aired on Wednesday, Biden said he was consulting with colleagues on the pace of the draw. In meeting the May 1 deadline, he said it could happen, but it is tough. If the deadline is extended, he said, it won’t be for very long.
Biden, like his predecessor, has promised to end nearly 20 years of conflict and bring home more than 2,500 US troops to the country + down from about 13,000 troops a year earlier. The Trump deal caught some American allies off guard, as about 7,000 NATO troops in Afghanistan depended on the US for logistics and security assistance.
In the interview, Biden said, “It was not a very negotiated deal that the president, the former president, worked on.” “We are consulting with our partners as well as the government, and this decision is in the process right now.”
