- Biden confirmed the plan during an emergency meeting with other G-7 leaders on Tuesday - some of whom have expressed concerns about the withdrawal and its impact on the Afghan people, especially women.
- The White House says the U.S. is "on pace" to complete the withdrawal by Aug. 31st, but is also working on "contingency plans" if necessary.
