Meanwhile, US President Joe Biden has authorized the deployment of 5,000 troops to Afghanistan to ensure "an orderly and safe" drawdown and evacuate US personnel. 

"First, based on the recommendations of our diplomatic, military, and intelligence teams, I have authorized the deployment of approximately 5,000 U.S. troops to make sure we can have an orderly and safe drawdown of U.S. personnel and other allied personnel, and an orderly and safe evacuation of Afghans who helped our troops during our mission and those at special risk from the Taliban advance," Biden noted.

In addition, he directed the Secretary of State to support President Ghani and other Afghan leaders "as they seek to prevent further bloodshed and pursue a political settlement". Secretary Blinken will also engage with key regional stakeholders.
