Kabul (BNA) U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other senior members of Congress made an unannounced visit to Afghanistan on Sunday, her office said.
Pelosi, who travelled to Afghanistan after a stop in Jordan on Saturday, met President Ashraf Ghani and visiting U.S. Defense Secretary Mark Esper as well as top U.S. military commanders and some of their troops, according to a statement released after the conclusion of the visit by the bipartisan delegation.
The lawmakers’ trip to the Middle East and South Asia occurred amid questions about the United States’ commitment to its allies after President Donald Trump’s sudden withdrawal of U.S. troops from northeastern Syria over his long-time desire to unwind from foreign military engagements. Pelosi’s relations with Trump are at a low point as she leads an impeachment inquiry against him.
Trump last month broke off negotiations with Afghan Taliban militants aimed at ending the United States’ longest war, a move that critics say highlighted a confused U.S. approach to Afghanistan.
The congressional visit coincided with one by Esper, who told reporters “the aim is to still get a peace agreement at some point, a political agreement.”
Pelosi said her delegation was briefed by U.S. diplomats on reconciliation efforts with the Taliban and also met Afghan Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah and civil society leaders, including Afghan women.
She said in a statement that they also “heard more about the still-pending status of results from the Afghanistan presidential election in September, which we all hope will be available soon.”
Preliminary results from the Sept. 28 election have been delayed past their Oct. 19 release, for at least a week, Reuters reported on Oct. 17.
