We Will Soon Welcome Afghans With Open Arms, Assures Joe Biden
Washington, August 23 (TNA) The United States of America (USA) president Joe Biden has said that his country would soon start accepting the immigrants from Afghanistan, who are fleeing in large numbers after the Taliban took over their country.
In a televised address to the people, Biden said that "once cleared and screened we will welcome these Afghans to their new home in the United States with open arms".
He went on to add that "we are a nation that has been strengthened by generations of immigrants adding their unique talents to our American tapestry"."That’s who we are" the president said further.
Biden has been widely criticised for pulling out of Afghanistan where it stayed for two decades, ever since the US forces went into Afghanistan to hunt down Osama Bin Laden after the 9/11 attacks on its soil.
