Joe Biden says he is ready to take on human rights in Afghanistan


WASHINGTON, Aug. 16 - On Monday, U.S. national security advisor Joe Biden said that President Jake Sullivan is prepared to marshal the international community in Afghanistan on human rights where Taliban is seizing power.

He is prepared to mobilize the international community on this issue. He is passionate about these human rights questions, and we will stay focused on them in the period ahead, Sullivan said in an interview with Today. But that was not a reason for the United States to enter into a third decade of war in the middle of an internal conflict in another country.
