US President Joe Biden is expected to decide as soon as Tuesday on whether to extend an August-31st deadline to airlift Americans and their allies to safety.

That’s according to Reuters news agency who cites an administration official as saying on Monday that the president would decide within 24 hours whether to extend the timeline.

Biden had said on Sunday that US troops might stay beyond the August-31st deadline to oversee the evacuation.

Reuters said some White House advisers were arguing against extending the deadline for security reasons.

Biden has a virtual meeting of the Group of Seven Nations on Tuesday and could make an announcement then. The Group of Seven Nations is a group of the ... those with the world's largest economies.

Reuters reported that the Taliban said foreign forces have not sought an extension, and it would not be granted if they did.

White House officials said Monday they’re in daily contact with the Taliban. National Security advisor Jake Sullivan told reporters that those talks concern [quote] “every aspect of what's happening in Kabul right now.”

Sullivan said about 16,000 people were flown out of Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul on Sunday and Monday.

Concerning the deadline, Sullivan said the President is [quote] “taking this day by day and will make his determinations as we go.”

In an interview with Britain's Sky News, Taliban spokesman Suhail Shaheen said that the US extends the deadline, in his words, “that means they are extending occupation.”

He said such an action would [quote] “provoke a reaction.”
