Senators demand a planned troop drawdown
The comments come days after the US government announced to withdraw half (7,000) of its soldiers from Afghanistan.
The senators said Sunday that terrorist groups got more power during the past 17 years despite the presence of US and other NATO members’ troops. They said war had intensified and now the foreign troops should leave based on a regular plan considering the critical situation of Afghanistan.
Meanwhile, senators criticized the current peace process, saying that negotiations with Taliban were unclear that would not help to end war.
