MONITORING DESK: A condolence ceremony was held at Ground Zero on the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks in the United States.
President Joe Biden, former presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton also attended the condolence ceremony. President Biden and First Lady at the Pentagon laid flowers at the memorial.
President Joe Biden defended the decision to withdraw troops from Afghanistan, saying the United States could not infiltrate any country where al Qaeda is present.
The US president said that US forces had completed their main mission by killing Osama bin Laden, so we had no right to stay in Afghanistan.
Trump Criticizes Bides
Meanwhile, former United States President Donald Trump has once again criticized the Biden administration over its withdrawal from Afghanistan.
In a statement issued 20 years after the attack on the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in the United States, Donald Trump said that Joe Biden and the incompetent administration surrendered with defeat.
The former US president said that on the occasion of withdrawal from Afghanistan, our leaders were fooled by bad planning.
“At the time of the withdrawal from Afghanistan, our leaders did not understand what was happening,” Trump said.
