US President Joe Biden announced in April that all US troops would be withdrawn from Afghanistan by September 11 this year. During a hearing on the budget proposal, Austin told the Parliament’s Armed Services Committee that the US had pulled a lot of its equipment from Afghanistan. “We are doing a lot of things right now. Intelligence, surveillance and military survey missions are being sent from the GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council), many of our warplane operations are being conducted from the Gulf.
The Defense Secretary said that the process of withdrawing all American troops will continue until September 11 to withdraw them. “The President clearly believes that our campaign in Afghanistan is complete,” Austin said. We are focusing on getting our people and equipment out. In the future, our efforts against terrorism will be focused on those extremists who can attack our country. “We will ensure that we continue to provide funding to his army and support his government as well,” he said. This support is also important from the point of view that the government is able to function and the military’s influence remains intact. Our campaign against terrorism is focused on al-Qaeda and we believe we will have the authority to continue the operation.” Biden, in his annual budget proposal, has requested $3.3 billion to fund the Afghan Security Forces.
