U.S. President Joe Biden on Wednesday firmly defended the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan and said he makes no apologies.
Addressing a press conference, Biden said: “I make no apologies for what I did.”
His administration drew criticism for the way troops were withdrawn and the sudden collapse of the previous government.
Biden suggested Wednesday there was nothing else that could have been done to bolster Afghan allies.
“Raise your hand if you think anyone was going to be able to unify Afghanistan under one single government,” he said.
“It’s been the graveyard of empires for a solid reason. It is not susceptible to unity.”
He also suggested it was not the responsibility of the U.S. to fix Afghanistan’s challenges, The Week reported.
