US President Joe Biden confirmed that the United States will continue its support for Afghanistan after the withdrawal of all American forces, but not “militarily.”

“The time has come to end America’s longest war,” Biden said in a speech from the room from which the war was declared in 2001 at the White House.

The withdrawal is scheduled to coincide with the twentieth anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks, officials say.

At least 2,500 American soldiers are participating in the 9,600-strong NATO mission in Afghanistan.
