US President Donald Trump will today announce his decision on America’s strategy in Afghanistan in an address to US troops and the nation, almost 16 years after the war began.
The US leader will “provide an update on the path forward for America’s engagement in Afghanistan and South Asia” in an address to be delivered from the military base at Fort Myer southwest of the capital.
Trump was said to be dissatisfied by initial proposals to add a few thousand more troops in the country, and advisers were studying an expanded strategy for the broader South Asian region, including Pakistan.
