US president Joe Biden will commemorate the 20th anniversary of 9/11 by touring to all the 3 web-sites of the assaults, the White House claimed on Saturday.

On September 11, the president and initial girl Jill Biden will ‘honour and memorialise the life lost 20 a long time ago,’ in accordance to the White Dwelling statement.

They will take part in ceremonies in New York, the place the twin towers of the Earth Trade Centre fell in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, the web-site of a crash of a airplane hijacked by 4 jihadists, and in Arlington, Virginia, in which the Pentagon was struck.

Biden had been counting on marking the 20th anniversary of the tragedy with a symbolic withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan.

But America’s longest war ended in chaos, with the US armed forces unprepared for Taliban’s swift takeover of the nation and the death of 13 US troops in an attack in Kabul as the pull-out was remaining finished.
