The United States plans to host at least 50 thousand Afghan refugees

All refugees are provided with shelter, food, water, medical assistance, said the head of the Northern Command of the U.S. Armed Forces, General Glen VanHerk.

The United States intends to expand the program of accommodation of evacuated refugees from Afghanistan in the country to at least 50 thousand people, the head of the Northern Command of the U.S. Armed Forces, General Glen VanHerk, said at a briefing on Friday.

“We are working to increase the number of evacuees who will arrive in the United States to at least 50 thousand,” he said, adding that currently, this figure is 25,600 people.

The general added that all refugees are now provided with shelter, food, water, and medical assistance.

On August 30, the United States completed both the evacuation of civilians from Kabul and its entire military mission in Afghanistan after the power in the republic came under the control of the radical Taliban movement. The decision to curtail the operation in this country, which began in October 2001 and became the longest foreign military campaign in American history, was announced by U.S. President Joe Biden on April 14.
