(FOX NEWS) – President Biden is set to deliver remarks to the American people Tuesday afternoon on his decision to end the two-decade war in Afghanistan, and is expected to make clear his intention to approach foreign policy in ways that will “keep the American people safe.”
The president is set to address the nation Tuesday afternoon at 2:45 p.m., just a day after the full U.S. military withdrawal from Afghanistan after a 20-year presence in the region.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki, previewing the president’s remarks, said he will “express his thanks to the commanders and service members who executed a dangerous mission in Kabul and airlifted more than 124,000 people to safety.”
Psaki said the president is also expected to “offer thanks to the veterans volunteers who supported this effort.”
“He will lay out his decision to end the war in Afghanistan after 20 years, including the tough decisions he made over the last seven months since he took office to bring the war to a close,” Psaki said.
“He will make clear that as President, he will approach our foreign policy through the prism of what is in our national interests, including how best to continue to keep the American people safe.”
