U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin said on Thursday the process of removing all contractors from Afghanistan working with the United States was underway as part of President Joe Biden's withdrawal of forces from the country.

Speaking with reporters, Austin said the contractors could however renegotiate their contracts in the future.

"We're going to responsibly retrograde all of our capabilities that we are responsible for and the contractors fall in that realm as well," Austin said.
