Biden set to announce U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan Updated: 2021-04-14 15:33:25 KST

U.S. President Joe Biden is set to announce on Wednesday a complete U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan by September 11th, aiming to end a war that has lasted for two decades.
That date will be the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attack on America that prompted the U.S. invasion to overthrow the Taliban.
Former President Trump wanted troops out by this May, and previous administrations had planned to withdraw sooner, going back to 2011.
But those plans were shelved because of security concerns, including a possible Taliban resurgence, which some say is a risk with this plan, too.
