Joe Biden and Afghan President Ashraf Ghani to meet Amid US withdrawal from Afghanistan

US President Joe Biden has ordered the withdrawal of all US forces from Afghanistan by this year's 20th anniversary of the September 11 attacks that triggered the invasion. 

 

Afghan leader Ashraf Ghani and head of state peace processes will meet with President Joe Biden at the White House on Friday, as the planned U.S. military retreat is fast approaching.

Biden ordered the withdrawal of all US troops from Afghanistan by the 20th anniversary of the September 11 attacks. Wanting to end the longest war in America, the president said he believed there was nothing more that could be achieved.

"The visit of President Ghani and Dr. Abdullah Abdullah will highlight the lasting relationship between the United States and Afghanistan as the war continues," spokeswoman Jen Psaki said in a statement on Sunday.

As U.S. troops prepare to meet the September 11 deadline, the Taliban are fighting daily battles with government forces and claiming to have captured 40 states.

Growing fear and uncertainty about the future has left many Afghans eager to leave, including thousands of men and women who fear retaliation for working with foreign forces.

The Taliban said on Sunday they remained committed to peace talks but insisted that the "real Islamic system" in Afghanistan was the only way to end the war and secure rights - including for women.

Negotiations between the forces and the Afghan government have been shut down for months and violence has erupted across the country since May when US troops began withdrawing for the last time.
