The US military did not evacuate everyone from Afghanistan who expressed a desire to leave the country, confirmed General of the US Central Command Kenneth F. Mackenzie Jr.
“I think if we were delayed for another ten days — we would still not be able to pick up everyone we wanted, there would still be people who would be disappointed. The situation is complicated, “ McKenzie said, as quoted by CNN.
According to him, if there is an opportunity for evacuation — both Americans and Afghans — “it will not be denied.”
Earlier, the United States announced the end of the mission in Afghanistan. President Joe Biden decided not to extend the operation to evacuate people from Afghanistan, based on the recommendations of the US military.
