The priority task of the United States is the evacuation of U.S. citizens from Afghanistan, residents who helped Washington, and women and children. On Monday, this was stated by Vice President Kamala Harris at a press conference following a meeting with Prime Minister of Singapore Lee Hsien Loong.
“We are focused on the evacuation of our citizens, those who helped us, as well as women and children,” Harris said.
“This is a priority, but at the same time a difficult task,” the vice president added.
