President Biden to Meet with Afghan President

Meeting scheduled as Taliban violence increases, U.S. troops withdraw.

President Joe Biden is preparing to meet with Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani at the White House on Friday. The Afghan head of the High Council for National Reconciliation will also join them. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said the discussions will include how the two nations “can work together to ensure that Afghanistan never again becomes a safe haven for terrorist groups who pose a threat to the U.S. homeland.“ Additionally, she noted that the leaders will talk about humanitarian and other assistance “even as we work to draw down our troops.”

The situation in Afghanistan has grown increasingly violent, as the Afghan government forces battle and lose ground to the Taliban, prompting questions about what will happen when the last American troops leave the ground there.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For President Biden as he meets with the leaders of Afghanistan about how to ensure peace for that country.
  • For wisdom for the president and military leaders as the withdrawal of all U.S. troops from Afghanistan advances toward the president’s September 11 deadline.
  • For U.S. diplomats and military commanders as they seek to stem the increasing violence and the potential rise in terrorist activities emerging from the Middle East.
