Afghanistan: Biden refuses to extend deadline to withdraw US troops

Channel 4 News published this video item, entitled “Afghanistan: Biden refuses to extend deadline to withdraw US troops” – below is their description.

The message from the Taliban today was clear – all foreign troops have to leave by Tuesday next week. Joe Biden wouldn’t budge from that deadline either, despite calls from other G7 leaders for a delay to allow more people to be evacuated.

Following the G7 meeting today Boris Johnson said they had agreed a “roadmap for future engagement with the Taliban” but gave little detail.
