US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Monday that President Donald Trump wants to reduce the number of troops participating in combat in Afghanistan by the time of the next US election to provide a time frame for Washington’s plan to minimize the number of troops.

“This is the guidance I have from the president of the United States,” Pompeo told the Washington Economic Club when asked if he expected a reduction of US troops in Afghanistan ahead of the next election in November.

“It was very clear: put an end to the endless wars, reduce, it will not be limited to us, we hope that the general need for combat forces in the region, US Secretary of State said.

The comments will further speculate that Trump is ready to conclude any deal with the Taliban that would allow at least a partial withdrawal of US troops before US voters go to the ballot box regardless of Washington-backed government fears in Kabul.
