The East African nation has long been praised for its open refugee policy and currently hosts about 1.4 million refugees, mainly from South Sudan.

The BBC had reported that President Joe Biden has said he stands “squarely” behind the US exit from Afghanistan as he faces withering criticism over the Taliban’s lightning conquest of the war-torn country.

“How many more American lives is it worth?” asked the Democratic president.
