US troops will remain in Afghanistan until the threat of terrorism is resolved there, reports RIA News Statement by US Vice President Michael Pence.




Earlier it was reported that Pence met with the leadership of Afghanistan during an unannounced visit to this republic.

Under President (Donald) Trump, the US military will remain in Afghanistan until we eliminate once and for all the terrorist threat to our country,
said the vice president, speaking to the US military.

Pence assured that the United States "remains in this struggle until the very end."

He also met with Afghan President Ashraf Ghani and Prime Minister Abdullah Abdullah.

It is a great honor for me on behalf of President Trump to welcome you and express our gratitude for the ongoing partnership, for the safety,
said Pence to the leadership of the republic.

Recall that in August, Donald Trump announced a new US strategy for action in Afghanistan. He refused to talk about the military aspects of the strategy, but made it clear that there would be no quick withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan. According to the decision of the president, the American contingent in Afghanistan will be increased by more than 3 thousands of troops, their total number will exceed 14 thousands of people.

    will remain in Afghanistan until the threat of terrorism is eliminated there,
    Considering how the Americans eliminate this threat, they will remain for a long time. True, there is another option - the militants will force them to leave with their active actions and, moreover, with shame, as if all sorts of Gregs Weiners would not knock themselves on the chest on TV.

    As Khoja Nasretdin said, “O warriors, you are looking where you didn’t hide,” return home, the main terrorist threat to the whole world is in Washington.

    For more than 15 years, they have been “fighting” terrorism in Afghanistan, and things are still there. In as poppy fields dragged on, they do not want to leave such a sweetness to anyone but their loved ones.

    Well, actually never. American scientists somewhere need to grow a new variety of Big Mac poppy. Again, someone needs to guard the terrorist camps on the border with Tajikistan, to ensure their supply.
    I’m more worried about something else, the specialists do not feel that the gerych traffic has increased, there has been more overdose in certain regions, please ask statisticians in the Ministry of Health for the regions.
