White House ducks question on deadline extension

At a White House briefing, President Biden’s National Security Advisor dodged a question from reporters about whether Biden will extend the 31 August leaving date.

Asked whether Biden had chosen to extend the deadline, Jake Sullivan instead pivoted, saying that the US was in talks with Taliban leaders “on a daily basis”.

The Taliban said earlier on Monday that they were against extending the deadline, which was announced by Biden in April.

“We believe that we have time between now and the 31st to get out any American who wants to get out,” Sullivan told reporters.

He added that the US believed there to be “thousands” of Americans left in Kabul. He declined to give a more precise number.
