President Joe Biden says his administration is also committed to evacuating Afghans who
assisted the United States during its 20-year war in Afghanistan.
Biden spoke at a White House press conference on Friday, vowing to evacuate every American still
in Afghanistan who wants to get out. Biden’s said no American citizens who want to leave the
country will be left behind.
Biden was asked whether all Afghan allies will be evacuated. He responded, “Yes. We’re making the
same commitment” to evacuate Afghan allies as has been made to Americans in Afghanistan.
The exact number of Afghans who qualify for evacuation is not clear, but it is believed to number
in the tens of thousands.
