President Biden met virtually with G20 Leaders today to discuss Afghanistan. The G20 Leaders were joined by Leaders of G20 guest countries and international financial institutions. The Leaders discussed the critical need to maintain a laser-focus on our enduring counterterrorism efforts, including against threats from ISIS-K, and ensuring safe passage for those foreign nationals and Afghan partners with documentation seeking to depart Afghanistan. The Leaders also reaffirmed their collective commitment to provide humanitarian assistance directly to the Afghan people through independent international organizations, and to promote fundamental human rights for all Afghans, including women, girls, and members of minority groups. The United States remains committed to working closely with the international community and using diplomatic, humanitarian, and economic means to address the situation in Afghanistan and support the Afghan people.White House.gov. 10/12/2021.

President Biden: That’s why, despite the attacks — the attacks and misinformation, my plan has overwhelming support of the polling data from the American people. They understand what’s at stake. They understand that workers and families have a better shot and Americans have a better shot.
President Biden: Folks, we need to step up again. But the challenge of today is one of economic competition. Let’s learn from that history, not because it was perfect, because Americans then did what they must do now: invest in ourselves to show the world that American democracy works and that, given half a chance, there’s nothing — not a single thing we can’t achieve when we do it together. I know we can do this. I’m positive we can. I’ve never been more optimistic about this country than I am right now. We’re going to restore faith, pride, and dignity in the future of this country. And we’re going to pass both — both of these bills and start building this economy to beat the competition and deliver for working families.
The daily press briefing is scheduled for 2:00 p.m. D.C., time.
