U.S. to decrease forces in Afghanistan from about 4,500 troops to 2,500

PressTV 7 views

The U-S says it will withdraw thousands of its troops from Afghanistan and Iraq within the next two months. The United States currently has some 3-thousand troops stationed in Iraq and nearly 45-hundred in Afghanistan. The decision to partially cut forces contradicts earlier remarks by Donald Trump saying all American forces in the two countries would be back home by Christmas. Meanwhile, Senate Majority leader, Mitch McConnell, slammed the decision, saying a sharp reduction of American troops in Iraq or Afghanistan would be a mistake.
