U.S. Defense Secretary meets Afghan president in Kabul

United States Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin met Afghan President Ashraf Ghani during a visit to Kabul on Sunday (March 21).

They discussed the peace process and concerns over rising violence, according to a statement from the Afghan presidential palace.

Austin made the previously unannounced visit to the Afghan capital following a trip to India this week.

The visit comes at a crucial time for the Afghan peace process as U.S. President Joe Biden’s administration reviews its plan for Afghanistan ahead of a May troop withdrawal deadline agreed by the previous Trump administration with the insurgent Taliban.
