Reverse decision on troop pullback, Trump asked

Reverse decision on troop pullback, Trump asked

Dec 24, 2018 - 17:13

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): A senior Republican lawmaker has asked President Trump to reverse his decision on pulling nearly half of US troops from Afghanistaninfo-icon.

Rep. Liz Cheney, the third-ranking Republican, said: "I am deeply concerned, and I oppose strongly the president's decision to apparently withdraw troops."

In an interview with CBC channel on Sunday, she remarked: "I think the president has done a lot of good things. But these two decisions would be disastrous."

Calling Trump's move a "very dangerous path to go down", the Republican legislator also hit out at Sen. Rand Paul’s support for stance on Syria and Afghanistan.

President Trump would rue the decision if the region slipped into instability, she believed. "If we were to withdraw precipitously, it will leave a situation where our enemies could again establish safe havens."
